Director Training

Application Process, Costs & Upcoming Dates

Application process

The application process for the Chartered Director Programme is a two-step process:

Step One - Applicants should complete an Expression of Interest Form. Please note that completion of an Expression of Interest Form does not guarantee a place on the Programme, nor does it place any obligation on the applicant to accept a place on the Programme.

Step Two - Following receipt of the Expression of Interest Form, applicants will be contacted by Programme Director, Eileen Gleeson, C Dir, to discuss their application. This completes the process and applicants will then be kept informed of future rounds of place offers for upcoming cohorts. 

Programme costs

The current costs for the Chartered Director Programme (inclusive of the Certificate and the Diploma in Company Direction) are:

  • €12,150 for IoD Ireland members

  • €12,645 for non members

The Programme fee includes tuition, documentation, examination entry fees, tea/coffee and lunches on module days and also included in the course fee are the evening dinners which take place on specified dates during the programme. A non-refundable deposit is required on booking a place.
