Summer Course Director of Rahoo Ciara joins us to answer the most common questions we get about EPV Courses. If you have any other questions that are not on this list, please get in touch at email@example.com!
How many days off is an EPV course worth?
1 Course = 3 EPV Days
2 Courses = 4 EPV Days
3 Courses = 5 EPV Days
At Rahoo, once you successfully complete your EPV summer course, your Professional Tutor will issue you with an EPV Certificate – yay! You give this to your principal.
When can I take EPV days?
EPV days are subject to Board of Management approval so all course days have to be approved by the school principal. Some schools have strict policies on when they can be taken. With Covid it has been difficult for teachers to avail of their EPV days, which is why EPV days had been rolled over for teachers.

Our CPD Summer Courses are €69 each.
However our Early Bird offer means all courses are €49 each for a limited time period.

Can I swap my course dates?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to change and swap dates. If you do not do your course in the dates allocated, you cannot get EPV approval. All courses are 2 weeks, as per DES rules. We cannot make exceptions.
Can I do my EPV courses at the same time?
According to DES rules, participants must completed one course at a time as exact dates of course completion will be noted on certificates.
