Benjamin Vann Jones (London)

The centre is excellent and easy to get to. The course is very informative & Richard is an excellent instructor making sure you fully understand everything along the way. 10/10

James Lewis (London)

From the limited time I have spent at the centre and what little I have seen, it seems like a very professional set up that had surprised me. My initial impression from the website was that it was a little centre crammed into a small train station. How wrong I was. I would come back for any other courses that I need throughout my career.

Barney Hooper (Surrey)

Well run, by transparent people.

Alboren Xhaferi (Surrey)

Very good teaching. Patient and excellent knowledge and brilliant way of passing on the information. Best tutor to have come across.

As always very good teaching and structure to the course. Richard was excellent at explaining the harder parts of the course. Will be doing more courses and recommending the BTC to others.

3rd Course I’ve done here and will use again when needed. Highly recommend The BTC.

This is the 5th course done at this centre and have found all to be very informative and in a format easy to understand.

Elaine is always very helpful, regarding bookings etc.

(Part P course, electrical foundation course)


As you are aware over the last 3 months, 1 have undertaken and passed all of the three training courses. A special thanks has to go to Richard as an excellent tutor. I am of course very happy in my achievements but this is down to The BTC, the best Training Centre and I am delighted I chose them. I would also like to thank Michael for all the good tips and advise and laughs we had. The staff you have are excellent, very professional and very dedicated to make sure every pupil understands fully every part of the course whether practical or theory. I do look forward to taking more courses with you and have already recommended you to people who want to undertake the courses you cover. My last thanks goes to Elaine who is just a lovely bubbly person.


Matthew Ransome (London)


Really enjoyed the course.Definitely recommend it to anyone.


Saqib Barlas, (London)
(Part P course)

Richard really is a great teacher, it’s what made me come here again. I would say that the 17th Edition practice exam book is a definite book on recommended reading – this should be pushed to students more before they start the course.

Serhat Gokmen, (London)
(Part P course)

As the last time, it’s great, quick and affordable. That’s the reason we keep coming back for more.

Les Lismore, (Surrey)
(bricklaying course, carpentry course, plumbing course, plastering course, electrical foundation course, Part P course, PAT Testing course, I&T (2392) course)

Laurence Gunzi, (Surrey)

Very friendly and helpful crew.  Plenty of information and course content.  Definitely helps to piggy-back the courses in rapid succession – but does do your head in!
