Testimonial from Former Architectural Graduate on the RIAI / OPW Training Scheme

"My three years in the RIAI graduate scheme in OPW has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I was fortunate to be involved in a wide range of projects and various stages of projects, including feasibility studies, design, tender preparation, and on-site experience. It was an enriching learning experience and a wonderful opportunity to develop important skills and knowledge which were necessary in my preparation for the Professional Practice Diploma and for a career as an Architect. The support provided to the Graduates during their studies is second to none and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the placement to anyone considering taking this opportunity."
