Awards were presented on the evening for courses completed both as full time day courses and part time evening courses. Certificates were presented in the following courses:
The night’s special guest was CEO and Technical Director of Causeway based dairy tech firm Dairymaster Dr Edmond Harty who delivered an inspiring address to the assembled Kerry ETB graduates.
On the night a special proze was awarded to Kerry ETB beauty therapy student Ciara Daly who has enjoyed a very successful year.
