Testimonials from Police Recruitment Courses


I recently attended the Cardiff course on July 18th, and had my assessment centre shortly after.

Just a quick email to say I passed the assessment centre. I found the course extremely helpful and beneficial, and the hints and tips were massively helpful.

Thanks again.”


Hey Guys

I attended the Exeter assessment centre course in June, I just found out I passed The AC and could not be happier! Thank you for all the guidance you gave, it was an incredible amount of help and I recommend it to all!

Many Thanks”


“Good evening.

I attended your course in April in preparation for my assessment in June. I passed 🙂 Along with the 3 others i knew who attended your course. I can’t thank you both enough for help that was given that day. It made me use my time effectively in the assessment and think logically and not forgetting i felt confident with my answer’s. I would most definitely recommend your course to anyone who is attending the assessment centre. I had been to assessment centre in 2014 and failed by 1% (if only I knew about this course back then) but so happy I did this time around.

Thanks again”


“Hi John & Team,

Just a quick email to say thank you for all your help at the seminar day you held up Newcastle in January.

I finally got my acceptance letter for Durham today.

You hold a great course and it make the assessment centre day less stressful 

Thanks again and I will definitely be recommending your course.




I just wanted to say a massive thank you!

I received my Ryton result today which was 67% overall. As a result all being well I will be starting as a constable in September.

Your course was absolutely invaluable and without it I would not have passed!

Also thank you to Graeme for his fantastic teaching!



“Hi John,

 Just wanted to let you know that I received an email from Police Officer Recruitment this afternoon…. I PASSED!

So over the moon and I cannot tell you how pleased I am that I came on the Talking Blues course. I cannot thank you enough.

Now for the district interview…

Thanks again,


“Message: Dear Graham,

I attended The Talking Blues course, about a month or so ago.

I am delighted to say I have recently attended the assessment centre and have passed. The course is well worth the money I have paid. 

I would advise anyone who has been invited to assessment centre, to book this course as soon as possible.

I felt that I would have been unequipped, and quite frankly stuck! had I have not attended this course.

Many Thanks again.

“Good Morning,

Just a quick note to say thank you very much for the course I attended run by Graeme in Swindon.  I’m delighted to tell you that I passed the assessment centre with 71%.

I found the course incredibly helpful with my preparation and will be sure to recommend it to others.

 Many thanks”

“Dear Talking Blues,

I attended your Assessment Course in December 2014. Last week I had received a phone call informing me that I had passed my final interview the Police.

My overall score was 69% and I scored 54% in my Written Communication. 

The instructors on the course were both encouraging and enthusiastic and I thoroughly enjoyed their support. I discussed with them my concerns and that I had the confidences to pass but I just needed the formally and someone to believe, in which I felt they genuinely believed in my ability. This was my fourth attempt at the assessment centre and the support has been amazing from friends, family and work colleagues. I have put a lot of hard work and dedication into becoming a Police Officer and I am glad you have contributed to my success. I was told two things when I was growing up, 1.  Never forget where you come from and 2. Always thank those that have helped you to achieve.

So thank you once again and continue your hard working”  



I attended the course at Walsall Holiday Inn on 1st Feb 2015 and had my assessment about 10 days later. I am glad to say I passed !! Just wanted to say this is mostly down to your course and input. I found the practise, advice and support documents so useful. The course gave me the confidence and took the fear out of the assessment day.

I recommend your course to everybody who is now talking about joining the Police,



“Hello. I just wanted to send a quick email. I took the course 4th January 2015 and passed assessment centre and had my final interview today. Passed that too start my PC training next month. Couldn’t have done it without talking blues. Many thanks!”


“Hey Guys,

I recently attended a course in Newcastle & at the end of the course you asked us all to email you with the result.

Firstly I would like to thank you all so much for the help and support you all offered. The course was recommended to me by a friend and I will 100% recommend it to others. I would have done this no matter what result I received because it truly was priceless however thankfully, I passed both the assessment centre and the local interview for Northumbria Police.

Thanks again,




I attended your course in Newcastle in January while going through recruitment for Northumbria, I wasn’t sure what to expect but found it very informative, the book resource was the thing that helped me most – I felt like I could practise and mark each exercise so I knew exactly what was being looked for on the day, I actually enjoyed my assessment day as result of being so comfortable with expectations !

I have just received my results yesterday and delighted to say I passed, I hope the local interview preparation advice in the book will be just as effective,

Thank you for your course, worth every penny!”


“Hi, just want to provide feedback following my attendance on your course in Newcastle back in June/July time.

I have successfully passed the process and will be joining Northumbria Police next week.
I can honestly say that I don’t think I would have passed the search centre without doing this course. Not because I haven’t got the skills, but because I had no idea what they were looking for until I did the course. No doubt I would have fallen into one of the many traps!”


Can I just take a moment to thank you for the help and guidance I received whilst attending one of your Talking Blues courses.

I recently took part in my third police search assessment centre, and third time lucky, I passed.

I found the course extremely helpful and was worth the money. I was obviously missing something which prevented me from passing in the past, however the course went through the process thoroughly and I was absent gain those extra marks to pass.

The trainers were approachable and delivered the content well.

I will be recommending this course to anyone wishing to join the police in the future.

I had my final interview for Durham Constabulary today, so hopefully by June I will be starting the career of my dreams by June.

Please paas on my regards to the trainers who attended that day, and I wish you all the best for the future.

Thanks again.



“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,


“Just to let you know passed the assessment centre last month, and passed the final interview this week for Northumbria.

Thank you for all your help and I’ll definitely be recommending the course to people.”


“Good Evening,

Just to let you know that I did your course and I found out today I passed my Day 1. I attended your course to help build my confidence for the role plays and to be honest by the afternoon of the course I was already feeling confident.

On my assessment day I was confident in my writing exam and also my role plays I felt I just breezed through them.

Thanks a million
