About Us

meHello I am John Maher the Director of Academy Recruit Training. I recently retired from Greater Manchester Police as an Inspector after 30 years service. I served in a variety of Operational departments and received 2 Chief Constables commendations for bravery. I also spent a lot of time in the training branch where I managed Area Training Bases. This is where new recruits were taught the Initial Police Learning Development Programme (IPLDP). The CKP is taken from the IPLDP. I received 4 Branch Commanders Commendations whilst in the training department for the excellence of the training delivered. So you can rest assured that the course you are selecting is of the highest quality. All our Trainers are experienced IPLDP trainers who have spent years teaching student Officers the subjects you will be learning on this course. They also haveĀ  extensive and recent experience delivering the CKP to people interested in joining the Police. You will not find more experienced skilled trainers anywhere and their support will be key to you achieving the CKP qualification and having a positive learning experience
