If it were not for BTES, I would not have passed the Solar exam. Their unique method of test taking helps to preserve time by not switch books constantly. Their method to study removed the confusion of “which book is that in” and made my ability to pass the test a reality. I strongly recommend their services to anyone wishing to pass construction exams.

BTES prepared me for the Plumbing trades knowledge and Business and Finance exams. BTES shows you the process for navigating text books to find what you are looking for quickly, highlighting and tabbing the right places, and providing you with useful information and practice tests in their study guides. These practices allowed me to pass both the trade knowledge and business/finance the first time. Trust me, you don’t want to take either of these tests twice. Follow the process, you will be successful.

I passed the Florida State Plumbing exam first try thanks to Building Trades Education Services in Sarasota. The BTES office personnel are all courteous. They gave me the tools to succeed. The instructor of the class is very knowledgeable, and went above and beyond. I felt very confident after taking the class and I literally passed my first attempt. Big thanks to Stuart.

If you focus and work hard, you can do it. I would highly recommend BTES if you want to take the Plumbing exam.

Mathew – Plumbing – March 2021

I’d like to say thanks to Stuart. He’s a very good teacher. I took the tests following his advice and I passed with good scores. Hey guys…although I had an excellent support and orientation from Stuart and the BTES staff, the process took me a lot of time studying at home (at least 3 hours a day). So, with commitment and personal effort, a good teacher is the right choice to get your approval to pass the exams.

Francisco – Plumbing – March 2021

Learned so much at my 2-day tutoring classes. I was able to get a more “in depth” look at each one of my trade books. I feel confident in my test after taking this course.

Cheyenne Swindle – Roofing – February 2021

After taking the Business and Trade exams for Lee County and failing I was contacted by Building Trades Education Services. The BTES Instructor, Nan Nahum explained in detail how the BTES process works. Yes, you need to go through your books, tab them, and highlight as required, and so forth, but because of the time pressure in the exam, success warrants that you follow the BTES systems.

After failing the business exam in the ’60s the week before, I passed with 96% (48/50) following the BTES system. I had not used BTES’s system for trade and failed (60’s). After talking to Nan she advised using the BTES system again… I passed the Trade exam the following Tuesday with a 94% (46/50). When I told the Proctor that I passed with a high grade, he asked how I went from failing to almost one hundred percent; I told him it is the Building Trades Education Services system!

Donovan – Business & Finance – Oct 2020

Super pleased with BTES! Incredibly grueling studying for several days in a row from 8-5 but if you want to take your career to the next level, YOU NEED to get serious and take on BTES. I have been studying for this license for nearly a year and 4 of those months were without BTES. I had to take the exam twice even with all of the studying I have done. If it weren’t for BTES, I would still be at square 1. I still need to take the business test but I can happily say the grueling 9 hour plumbing exam is finally behind me thanks to BTES!

Johnny – Plumbing – Jun 2020

BTES and Denise have been great to work with. I took the General Contractor test prep class and have used them for my licensing. I cannot say enough great things about them and Denise and how they have helped me through this process. Thanks.

Richard – General Contractor – Jun 2020

The Instructor was very knowledgeable. He went through all the books in a timely manner and I was able to pass the test on the first take. I also appreciate the virtual class as I am in Miami and could not make it to central Florida, but needed to take the test. I used your company 15 years ago for my building license and am glad I came back. Thank you and keep up the great work.

Christina – General Contractor – Mar 2020

I decided I wanted to become a State Glass and Glazing contractor to expand our residential window replacement company. From the beginning of this process Denise and everyone at Building Trade Education Services were accommodating and more than helpful. I called Denise daily to ask questions regarding books, classes, and things I would need. Denise never seemed bothered by the countless amount of times she had to change my estimate and gladly helped me. She has a true passion for what she does. Building Trade Education Services allowed us to repeat classes after failed tests with no cost out of pocket only time. To me this is huge because you do not always learn things the first time in the classroom. With their guarantee you can attend the classes as many times as you need after testing within one year. To me that means they believe in what they do. Stuart the instructor knows how to lay out the material in a manner that you can grasp and learn it. He hits on key points that you will see on the test. My overall experience with Building Trade Services has been nothing but positive. I will continue to work with Building Trades to become a Residential Building Contractor.
