What our clients say

Below is a small example of the feedback received from various Garda rank members that have used our services. We have left out identifiable names at clients request.

“Overall I would say that the course was worthwhile and it did help to prepare me for the real test. As proof of the efficacy of the course I can say that I was indeed promoted and your course was of assistance to me in achieving that promotion.”
~ Serving Superintendent

 “Without the help/assistance of Career Services I definitely would not have been in the right mindset for this test. In relation to numerical tests I know for a fact I would have failed in this section if not for practicing over and over on the Career Services website. The examples provided are more than enough to get you over the line as the live test was extremely similar to the examples provide”
~ Brian (2021 promotion competition)

 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. 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”
~ Gary, Co. Dublin (2022 campaign)
