I have just completed my transport manager CPC training course with ISM and am about to sit my exam. I can without a doubt say that Stephen is one of the best tutor's I have come across. Everything about the course was so engaging and interactive, and considering I have no background at all in transport I feel I am more than ready to sit the exam. Stephen was always more than happy to answer and explain any of our questions and always goes out of his way to ensure no student is left behind. I 100% recommend this course to anyone who is considering it.

After working for ISM for 10 years and having a high expectation from the trainers then, I thought I knew what level of training I was going to get on the CPC Transport Manager's Course. I was wrong, Stephen raised the bar, but it seems to be a bar he set for himself. The course was excellent, Stephen was very informative and the group was fantastic. I can't fault it and I would definitely recommend this course to anyone thinking about moving up in the Transport Industry. Thank you Stephen.

I did the Transport Manager CPC course with Stephen Kavanagh through ISM. Stephen is a fantastic lecturer. Made the material as easy and understandable as possible. Very positive learning experience. Stephen engaged with discussion as often as he could and encouraged students to share their experience.

I would like to thank Stephen Kavanagh for sharing his knowledge over the last 5 months, very engaging and helpful, make sure ye hold onto him. I have just finished a CPC transport course with Stephen, an excellent teacher. I really enjoyed the course & learned so much from him, irrespective of how the exam went I believe we could not have been better prepared. Thank you very much Stephen.

Just had to take the time to write a review on the Transport Management CPC course I have just completed with ISM and the excellent trainer I had for it, Stephen Kavanagh. The man is amazing at his job. I am dyslexia and it took me over a year to commit to this course, from day one Stephen was like am old friend. He took the time to talk to me over the phone before I even signed up and he saw there for me the whole way through the course. This man is a credit to the company. If you see the name Stephen Kavanagh on a course. SIGN UP. Thanks again Stephen.
