Training - Prism


Prism is the largest E-Commerce Initiative for SMEs in Ireland, involving 25 Chambers of Commerce delivering an Internet Business Strategy Course to a minimum of 500 SMEs and creating awareness of Internet Opportunities among 3,000 small businesses nationwide.

What is Prism:
Prism is funded under the EU Adapt Initiative and led by Chambers of Commerce of Ireland with matching funding and support coming from Telecom Eireann.

Prism has two core elements:
  • Internet Information Seminars hosted by Telecom Eireann, Indigo and Castlebar Chamber of Commerce to build awareness and simulate demand for the Internet.

  • An Internet Business Strategy Training Programme customised for SMEs to give you all you need to know about introducing the Internet to your business and all the practical skills to use it, delivered by Castlebar Chamber of Commerce

What Prism means for the participant:

On completion of the course you will understand the role and potential of the internet in your own business, have the basic skills to use relevant Internet Applications, be aware of the strategic issues you need to address to establish a Web Site and have begun to develop an Internet Strategy for your business.


Maria Quinn - Executive Director Castlebar Chamber of Commerce, will deliver the programme. Maria is a certified instructor with ICII - Internet Certification Institute International. ICII have approved this programme and the Chambers of Commerce of Ireland will award successful participants a Certificate in Internet Business Strategy.
