To qualify for a FIT course you must meet the following requirements:
1) You must be 18 years of age or over
2) You must be receiving one of the following for at least 6 months:
. Job Seeker's Allowance

Those who do not have 12 months continuous unemployment but who have an interrupted employment/unemployment history may be considered. 12 months unemployment in the last 36 months may be used as a guide for individuals in this situation.
For those who do not meet the above criteria their individual circumstances should be documented and presented by the project worker putting forward that person for FIT to their own assessment team - involved in the recruitment of FIT Courses.
