Email after a class: “Hello Jerome. I wanted to extend a thank you to you and the class. A lot of good useful information and you made it fun.”
“Commissioner Ornell,First I would like to thank you for referring me to Attitudinal Dynamics of Driving class. It was very generous of you.
I finished the session Saturday August 10.
I was very impressed with the presentation by Jerome Cobert and his expert guidance through the laws of driving.
It was done in a very professional way and personally I came away knowing that I will be a better driver.
We all need a little refreshment and "attitudinal" adjustment from time to time, preferably not due to tickets though.
There were lots of younger drivers and I came away hearing positive comments. We worked in groups, part of the time, and it was interesting to observe the younger generation involved in discussing different scenarios.
Once again, thank you for letting me attend this class and come out with a clean record and a new attitude.”

“Since its inception in Sonoma County, Alive at 25 has provided instruction to nearly two thousand young people. The student evaluations are uniformly positive. It is beyond any doubt this program has provided valuable life skills to our local youth and will save lives. I have no doubt that any community would benefit from Alive at 25.”

“There is only one true proven approach to reducing the number of young people being killed on our roads, the three "E's": education, engineering and enforcement. Without any of the three, the strategy will not work. GDL and enforcement along with vehicle improvements have helped, but the largest single factor to our success has been the Alive at 25 program.”

“I have had the great pleasure of requesting specialized training for the Security Team at the Transamerica Pyramid from Cobert Safety Professionals. The Executive Director, Jerome Cobert, is a colleague of long standing who has been helpful to me personally and professionally in many ways for several years.
Recently, I requested customized training in Standard first aid, AEDs, and Tactical first aid for our security team. Mr. Cobert designed a program that was absolutely outstanding. The technical aspects of the training were accurate, clear and accessible. The trainers were tops in their respective fields and very good at teaching. Our officers were extremely interested and pleased with the training.
In addition, I asked for and received custom built "Individual First Aid Kits" IFAKs which were first rate. Cobert consulted a series of experts, examined our needs and collaborated with us to create a compact, effective and reasonably priced set of IFAKs for deployment at our site. We believe they are as good as any in existence.
All of this was delivered on time and on budget, a significant factor in custom designed training and equipment.
The training and equipment that that Cobert Safety Professionals provided created a significant boost in capability and confidence for our officers. In addition, this type of training is useful for officers in their home life and therefore a morale booster.
It is my recommendation that Security teams, safety officers or others who desire top quality training and equipment consult Cobert Safety Professionals as they do a very good job.”
