Book your police assessment course
watch our free video seminars on police recruitment


If you are thinking of applying to become a police officer, you are probably aware how challenging the recruitment system can be. For 19 years, Talking Blues has been  the largest specialist training provider of preparation courses to get you through your assessment, with a unique money back on the day quality guarantee. We run between 40 and 60 courses a year. We have been specifically commissioned to provide assessment preparation courses by five police forces, where they have sponsored BME candidates.

IMPORTANT NOTE: There are currently two recruitment systems in use. Your first step in preparation is to identify which one you will take.


Just wanted to say thanks to you and Graeme for a great day yesterday. I had just done a half day preparation session in force. Which anyone could attend, and was bit sceptical about paying to come on your course. I can honestly say though that whilst the half day just told me stuff I already knew, your techniques and methods of tackling the exercises were excellent.

I now feel much better about attending the assessment centre, all I have to do is put what you say into action!

Thanks again for a hugely informative day, and you and Graham are two funny guys!



Dear John,

I attended your Talking Blues course at the start of last month in addition to purchasing your book. I’m thrilled to say I passed the Assessment Centre shortly afterwards and got confirmation that I passed my force interview with Sussex Police yesterday! I cannot tell you how much of difference your course and book made and it was worth every penny of the fee plus the long trek to Hatfield.

To give you a bit of perspective, I am a Special Constable and of the four of us from my class that applied to become regulars, only I made it through I was the only one of us who attended your course. I have no doubt that the combination of your course and book provided me with the confidence and capability needed to pass both of these assessments.

Needless to say I have no hesitation in recommending your course to anyone looking to follow my path and, indeed, I have strongly recommended that one of my colleagues attends your course next time the window for officers opens down here.

So thank you again for your services – both attending your seminar and reading your book were an absolute pleasure.

Kind regards,
