The National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ) was introduced in 2003 as a system of 10 Levels. The 10 Levels capture all learning, from the very initial stages of level 1 to the most advanced learning of level 10.

The NFQ provides a way to compare qualifications, and to ensure that they are quality assured and recognised at home and abroad IRS offer training from level 3 right up to level 9 in the framework.
