refireglogoSMRefrigeration Training has been in touch to say that they are doing to be offering a Beginners Game Development Programme. It is currently a non accredited course, but if they get enough interest, they  will put it through the FETAC/QQI QA procedure.

This is a crash course in Unity3d development. Learn the basics of 3d, 2d, game engine programming, and how to publish your projects. Unity3d is a game engine that can be used for all types of interactive media. Build your games or interactive media for Web, iOS, Android, Windows, Apple and Windows Phone. This course would suit all levels of 3D Modellers, Architects, Web Designers, Game Design students and anyone looking to learn something about the game development process.

This is a course descriptor for the class here.


No experience is necessary, but a basic ability to use a computer is needed. Students must have a laptop to work while in the class for the best experience. It is possible to work from home after class, as all material will be available online. The programs to be used are Unity5 (Personal License) + MonoDevelop (Scripting), Blender3d (3dModelling), and GIMP (2dImageEditing).


10 week course with a 2hr class per week.

Starting 29th May, every Friday 6pm-8pm, for 10 weeks
