First of all let me thank you for getting me through the state business exam. It was more challenging than the trade exam I took. Nan taught me how to do the Percentage of Completion form of accounting. Stuart taught me the break-even point, both of these different styles of accounting really did help in the more than 50 questions I encountered during the exam. Plus I used BTES for the board review and I now have my license. We did it! Thank you BTES.

You have a fabulous employee named Jessica. You are so lucky to have her in your employment. She went way out of her way to help us. She is the epitome of patience and customer service. She was kind, caring, and compassionate.

Bobbi and Ron Erhart – Pool – September 2022

Thank you! I can definitely say this is the best school. Stuarts method helped me incredibly for the Business & Finance and the AC trade portion of the exam. I can’t say enough about the school and the Office. Jessica has been amazing from day one. I also did my licensing paperwork with them for DPBR and it went smoothly and quickly.

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.

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!
