I felt it necessary to contact you and tell you how grateful I am for all your inspiration and training on the Transport Managers CPC.
 On your course I learnt so much in such a short space of time. Your methods of teaching were so to the point and I still keep your handouts to look back on.  I gained an insight into a whole new career. It was in your classes that I got inspired and from then on, I knew this is where I want my career. In your class I learnt about the other courses available in Logistics. In 2011, I successfully obtained my Diploma in Logistics & Supply Chain Management and I am now proceeding with my Bachelors Degree in Supply Chain & Transport Management. 
Just recently, I was hired as the Transport Manger of a large fleet and I look back now and I know of all the great lecturers I have had, you inspried me the most. Your course and teaching methods are superior and this changed the way I think about learning. I now know learning and education is continuously improving skills and investing in my future. Thank You

All professional Truck and Bus drivers must now attend a one day training course per year and according to Tony Hynes of CPC.IE, whilst a lot of drivers were hesitant and sceptical about the course initially, the feedback has been brilliant. The drivers who have attended the Driver CPC modules with CPC.IE are extremely enthusiastic about the course and have praised the practicality of the content.

Others, because of the relevance of the subject matter, have even attended the course even though they are not obliged to.
