Here’s what some of our previous visitors have said...

...the work placement has turned into a great job...

I’m now qualified and the work placement has turned into a great job with real prospects. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. I get more time with my family these days, I’m learning every day and enjoying it all enormously. And since gas is unlikely to run out in the near future, I feel I have a career for life!

Mark Thomas, Colchester

What did you find most useful about the day? The fact that I could have a gas qual in around 15 weeks.

The fact that I could have a gas qual in around 15 weeks. BTC are a friendly bunch of guys who give Clear & Straightforward Information.

...Of all of the "Open Days" I have attended yours has to be the best...

Very interesting and well worth traveling to gain the knowledge. Of all of the "Open Days" I have attended yours has to be the best - In fact it’s second to none! Thank you, worth every penny spent on the fuel.

Hussain Rassal, Middlesex

superb…the facilities look amazing, especially the new fault finding area…

Your Open Morning was a superb packed with ace info and the facilities look amazing, especially the new fault finding area – wow!. Can’t wait to start my training.

Simon, Newcastle

...I will recommend without hesitation...

The Open Day was a real eye opener to someone who has no knowledge or experience about building trades. The staff were very knowledgeable, down to earth people who weren’t pushy and welcomed any questions regarding the course available. I felt much better talking one on one with the staff to give me all the info I needed to choose a new career path to follow. I would highly recommend everyone thinking of training to attend an open day!

Joe Hillcoat, Midlands

Very informative and inspiring. Friendly advice WITHOUT the pressure to sign up. Open and Honest upfront information.

P Whitaker, Harrogate North Yorkshire

Go to an open day you won’t be disappointed...

First of all I would like to thank, James and Tim for an honest and very interesting day. All of my questions were answered, I felt very comfortable as we were all talked to on a level and I was VERY impressed with the training facilities. If you are maybe only thinking about retraining, go to an open day you won’t be disappointed.

Darren Snowden, Cleckheaton

The professionalism was brilliant

From the first phone call all my questions were answered in detail and honestly. I actually traveled 250 miles from Kent just for the Open Day and the professionalism was brilliant.

Craig Harrigan, Kent

I will recommend without hesitation…

The Open Day on Saturday was the most informative seminar I’ve been to. I found it the most refreshing, honest open approach to a major step in anyones new career. No holes were barred and everything was laid out in black and white. You know what you are getting from these well trained tutors. This is a training facility I will recommend without any hesitation. Well done and Thank You to all the staff.

Lenny Burgess, West Yorkshire

...BTC easily was the best by far...

Every other course provider advertising on the net told me I had to do the 6129 basic plumbing certificate and NVQ level 2 before I could do the gas training, which is what I really wanted to do. After spending an hour with James at BTC (and getting to see the training actually being done) I saved wasting a year of my time and over £5k on courses I don’t need. You CAN train straight away to be a fully qualified gas engineer, other course providers just want that extra £5k for a quick basic course and will tell you anything to get it. The key with BTC is the work placement. I found the course information at BTC very clear and structured in a logical way that makes it easy to understand, so easier to make your decisions and there was no pressure at all to sign up or pay deposits. I have been a Sales Rep for 19 years in the construction industry and have been out of work for 2 months with no jobs available. At 36 years old I will be retraining with BTC as a gas engineer in September in Corby, Northants. After 2 months of researching these courses I can only be honest about my experiences and so recommend BTC easily as the best by far. Thanks for your help, James.

Paul Godwin, Northants
