FIT & CMETB – Smart Building Technologies programme – ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS NOW!!!!


Course Overview:

As new technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT) make rapid advancements, smart inter-connected buildings are becoming the norm.  Smart building technologies and management systems, save energy, streamline facilities management, prevent expensive equipment failures and increase security, comfort and connectivity.

At the most fundamental level, smart buildings deliver enhanced building services that optimise occupant experiences (e.g. lighting / illumination, thermal comfort, air quality, physical security, wireless connectivity, multi-media and many more) at the lowest cost and environmental impact. Realising this goal requires adding intelligence from the beginning of design phase through to the end of the building’s useful life.

Smart buildings use information technologies to connect a variety of subsystems, which typically operate independently, so that these systems can share information to optimise total building performance. Smart buildings reach beyond the building equipment within their four walls. They are inter-connected, responsive to interactive technologies, and interact with building operators and occupants to empower them with new levels of visibility and actionable information.

Job Opportunities:

Successful candidates from this course will secure employment in this new but rapidly growing sector of Smart Building Technologies in areas such as systems installation and maintenance including ICT networks, PLCs, KNX systems and the configuration and monitoring of smart building technologies, equipment/appliances and multimedia systems.

Common tasks undertaken by Smart Building Technicians would include:

  • Connecting building management systems, energy efficiency measures, security and maintenance systems
  • Connecting people and building technologies
  • Networking of Systems/ Appliances and Wireless Technologies
  • Connecting to the external / global environment
  • Systems Management & Monitoring
  • Connectivity to an intelligent future
  • Installing and Maintenance of Assistive Technologies
  • Data Collation & Analysis
  • Configuration, Monitoring and Maintenance of Automation / Multi-media Systems

Who Should Apply?

Successful candidates for this course will demonstrate an interest in understanding building controls systems, network configuration and IoT technologies and how they enhance the build environment with regard to energy consumption, security/control, usability and comfort.   The course combines theory with practical application in a real work environment.  Participants will become proficient and comfortable working with computers & advanced technologies, and competent with regard to the networking and configuration of smart building technologies and maintenance systems. 

Eligibility Criteria:

Candidates should demonstrate the drive and enthusiasm to learn smart building technologies, a can-do attitude to solving problems with a strong work ethic.

Have attained Leaving Cert standard or equivalent.


Previous relevant work experience or demonstrable interest / prior knowledge in the area.
