Test Preparations – Aptitude Test and Interview Training, Guiding you to success

Established in 1996, we have been successfully running Aptitude Tests and Interview preparation courses for most large public sector recruitment competitions.

Competitions for which we hold courses include:

Dublin Fire Brigade   Firefighter – Paramedic

Garda Síochána

Defence Forces – Army / Navy Recruit

Trainee Pilot (Civil & Military)


General Interview Preparation
Courses can also be organised for other Aptitude Tests either as groups or with individuals.

Test Preparations have been holding these courses in Dublin and around the country since 1996 and during this time have had an extremely high success rate at both the Aptitude test and Interview stages of the selection process.

A recent survey of previous Test Preparations course participants showed a 97% success rate at Stage 1 of the selection process, many of whom were in the top one hundred places.

Not only do we cover material very similar to what appears on the actual aptitude test but we also explain it in such a way that participants can apply what they learn to any type of questions which appear on the actual test.


All Test Preparations Instructors are qualified teachers, holding either an Honours or Masters Degree and Higher Diploma in Education. In addition to this our principal Instructor, Paul O’Reilly is qualified in test administration to British Psychometric Society Standards.
