What a great company from booking with Emily over the phone! I booked with cove training based on their teacher reviews and was not disappointed!
Haven’t done any school in over 30 years and just got made redundant! Did traffic control and traffic management with Roy and made me feel at ease and not stupid when freezing or going blank on assessment test, was so understanding and so helpful! Then I did the white card with Tom who had personal issues but chose to come in and teach his class which he absolutely loves doing! Still nervous from the previous 2 days training, but was put at ease with help and guidance through this course! I would like to thank Roy and Tom for all their support and encouragement to pass these courses:-)
Would love them to add rail ticket to their list of courses.

Right from the start Cove were very well organised, and they followed through right until the end.
The trainer on the day was friendly entertaining as well as informative and knowledgeable.
I would have no hesitation in recommending them to everyone
