"I am currently waiting for the next intake class after passing all stages with an OOM in the 50s. I don't know how I would have fared without the help of Career Services. They gave a clear direction and strategy for doing well in the various stages. The course instructors were brilliant and helped with feedback and advice long after the courses were over. The work put in on your own time is massively important but with the direction of Career Services, you know what to aim at and how to hit it every time. I couldn't recommend the course and people involved more highly"
"I did a Garda stage 1, 2 and 3 preparation course last year with ye, I started my training last week in Templemore and can honestly say I wouldn't be there if not for the preparation courses, the best money I ever spent thanks again"
"Just wanted to send a brief note thanking you and all the team from career services. I've passed all stages and I'm waiting for a start date (hopefully September). I can easily say there's not a chance I would be here had I not done Stage 1, 2 in particular. In 2013 I bombed out first round!! The online site, which I used literally every day was an invaluable source for preparation. The interview course gave me great confidence going in to my own interview. Thank You, best money I've ever spent!"
