Being involved with the WCS is a very rewarding use of my time. The Skillnet is very close to the skills needs of the City and the region. It responds to these skills needs in a very proactive, dynamic and creative way across a broad range of training initiatives on an ongoing basis.

The Waterford Chamber Skillnet is a valuable resource for HavenWood, it provides us with the benefits of having a large Training Department by pooling resources, identifying our training needs with other healthcare businesses and then delivering cost effective and relevant training. Waterford Chamber Skillnet provides use with the opportunity to run and share courses with other healthcare facilities that would be normally be beyond our resources in time, management, location and cost.
