“17th edition course”

Written on: 19/04/2016 by 6572cost (1 review written)

As a training electrician I needed to complete the 17th edition wiring regs and after searching the internet I found Tradeskills4U. I choose Tradeskills4U as they were the only provider I could find that accept Enhanced Learning Credits which was a massive help to me. The training centre, staff and the class tutor were exceptional and very professional throughout the course keeping me updated before, during and after the course had finished. Certificates were promptly despatched a week or so… Read Full Review

“Professional training centre with very helpful staff ”

Written on: 12/04/2016 by JPStocker (1 review written)

Really can't rate Trade Skills 4u highly enough. I've booked a number of courses with them both for my own personal development and as part of a training programme for colleagues. From making enquirys to securing bookings and aranging payments, the sales / office staff are really helpful, friendly and professional. The trainers are highly skilled and exemplary in their ability to teach. The workshops and facilities are also very good. Trade skills 4u were able to offer tailor made training… Read Full Review

“Highly Recommended”

Written on: 21/03/2016 by KJSparkes (1 review written)

Based on research into the courses I was looking to do I really wanted to use TradeSkills4U but being based in Manchester they were just too far away for me to make it work. The opening of the new Warrington training centre was perfect timing and being brand new is an excellent facility. The tutors are very knowledgeable with regards to the theory but also all have actual practical experience in the field, I think this is the key thing. As with most things like this the theory is fine but you… Read Full Review

“Best value for money courses.”

Written on: 16/03/2016 by johnbutton (1 review written)

I have just attended Trade skills 4U for the second time, as I wanted to bring myself up to date with the Part P regulations. The tutor was very knowledgable, he made this five day theory course easy to learn. He answered all the classes questions, and didn't move on to the next subject until he was sure the class was at the same level. Trade skills 4U is a great college for any electrician who wants to keep up to date with the ever changing regulations. The courses are varied and cover all… Read Full Review

“Good Course, well run with good tutors ”

Written on: 15/03/2016 by PeterS12345 (1 review written)

I am looking for a career change and after building my own property I have thought long and hard about getting a trade. I decided that becoming a domestic electrician would suit my strengths. Not having any formal electrician experience I thought that a course where I could achieve my qulaifications before helping an established electrician seemed a good idea. I have had to split my training on the silver course due to already being in full time employment and m currently half way through. So… Read Full Review

“Diabolical ”

Written on: 10/03/2016 by Spearswc115 (1 review written)

Absolutely disgusting course. Currently undergoing 2365 C&G Level 3. Having spent my mortgage deposit to take this course I was first taught practical by a tutor who had no time in teaching us or answering questions we had considering we had never done practical work before. Having completed level 2 by a sheer miracle and self teaching I am no on level 3 getting taught by a tutor who openly admitted an end of level 2 he would not be teaching us again as he isn't confident teaching level 3.

We are a genuinely shocked to see this review, given our normally superb feedback, so we will have to check its validity given its clear uncompromising narrative. We are small family business with high standards and ideals and will always admit where we are wrong and put it right, but we are not so arrogant as to believe we get it right every time. So we will check the contents of this review to access its validly and investigate accordingly. We receive around 2 to 3 complaints out of 2,700 customers a year, which isn’t bad stat and we always resolve them amicably.
However one thing we would like to make clear having witnessed the hundreds of successful electrical business born under our roof of which we are justly proud, is that all tutors teaching at Trade Skills 4U are more than qualified to deliver their chosen subjects. Also we are always very clear on our website and on the phone as to the career route to becoming a fully qualified electrician which involves your technical certificates (C&G 2365), NVQ and AM2 assessments.
If genuine can the reviewer contact us directly so we can investigate further, it is difficult to verify the contents and reply if they’re made anonymously.

“Turmoil”

This place has gone do own hill only 3 full time teaching staff longest serving less than a year all the others have left. Currently working towards level 3 2365 with a tutor that announced to the class at the end of level 2 he would not see us again because he was not confident in teaching level 3. No lesson plans, poor and inaccurate power points and lucky to get a worked example of a calculation correct 1st 2nd or even third attempt. Avoid this training centre at all costs especially£7500… Read Full Review

It is very difficult to respond to such a negative post which contains information which we know is not true. We currently have a staff count of 22 (you can view many of their profiles on our website) and have just opened up a superb new centre in Warrington so are far from going down hill.

We need to be sure this is a valid review and has not been posted by a competitor or simply a student trying to get a few quid back from training he’s received, using a negative review as leverage. Unfortunately all businesses see them from time to time. If it is genuine, which is hard to verify as we don’t recognise the name we still need to check (though oddly it seems remarkably similar in style to an another post of a different name) we would very much like the reviewer to contact us whilst in centre so we can work to resolve any issues they have and find out why they feel so negatively towards us. As with any negative feedback we receive we will use this to further improve our offering.

Whatever the validity, we can only say, of the 100’s customers that come though our doors every month, from which we get real feedback, we score on average 9 out of 10.

I've just completed the Trade Skills 4 U Bronze Domestic Installer Electrical package and would highly recommend Trade Skills 4 U.

“C&G 4141-01 review”

Written on: 14/10/2014

I needed some genuine practical experience to add to my theory, part P and 17th edition courses. which had been included as part of a plumbing course. I found the 4141-01 course on the website and subsequently confirmed with the booking department, this was indeed the course I needed. I got a lot more than I expected, the tutor was fantastic, if i had taken this course first, the other 2 would have been so much easier.the facilities were clean tidy and well lit, tools and materials are in… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/08/2014 by TristonDevine68 (1 review written)

As a non electrician, I thought I would be way out of my depth going in to do my 17th Edition course. This wasn't the case however, everything was so well explained and thought so well, that I found everything very easy. I would highly recommend using Trade Skills 4u as the place to go for your course. Not only was it cheap compared to some, but everything was made easy by the multiple emails telling me what I need to take, where I need to go and course material needed. When in the class room… Read Full Review

“I feel accomplished!”

Written on: 11/08/2014 by tjKennedy287 (1 review written)

I've just completed my Part P course 2393 and passed well which has left me feeling very accomplished.I must admit I was very apprehensive about stepping back into a learning environment given the last time I did on the 2391 some years ago I crashed and burned badly leaving me clear that being able to sign off my own work was merely a" pipe dream "and looked highly likely it was going to stay that way! However,from approachable staff to a clearly communicated agenda the course moved me on… Read Full Review

“Top training”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by Jb76 (2 reviews written)

I have worked in the industry of 20-odd years. I have experienced 3 different Electrical training providers, TS4U is by far the best. I have completed 4 courses with TS4U now and have more planned. I always find the back room admin staff to be very helpful and great to deal with. The instructors were not 'stuck-up' or condescending. And cared about the students who were finding it difficult. They had information that I needed/wanted and they put it across very well. I have sent my… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/03/2014 by 262Sherwood (1 review written)

If your quick with manual work and have no major issues in your personal life, this centre is for you. Instructor had a very good knowledge to pass on. It's not much point trying to take any of the knowledge on board, unless you feel OK in the learning environment. Happy learner, no matter what ability, is going to learn quicker, rather than a flustered and annoyed learner. I still do not have my certificate even though I emailed them! Have not heard back. Don't bother with Trade Skills… Read Full Review

Dear Sherwood,

Many thanks for your review and congratulations on passing your course with Trade Skills 4U.

The domestic installer course is specifically designed for those new to the industry and the fact that you have passed the course with us whilst dealing with some quite serious personal issues is proof of this. We often offer extra support and guidance to students that are struggling if they highlight any issues during the course. However we do find on the odd occasion, some do discover that maybe electrics isn't for them and perhaps too challenging which is absolutely fine and not a criticism and in a training environment is probably the best place to find that out.

As with any customer we would ask you contact us directly to see why you have not received your certificate rather than via review website. Though we should say we have to wait for City & Guilds, BPEC and other accrediting bodies to send us certificates before we can forward them on and sometimes this can take as long as 6 weeks.

We always go out of our way to help every student that needs it in our centre. In particular we offer free training for service leavers many of whom are dealing with very serious life changing conditions and really struggling in life. We do this because we know our tutors are some of the best in the UK and able to support our students through each course.

As with any training centre sometimes equipment may become worn, however as you have highlighted we do keep backups just in case. They are not hidden, we just simply keep them in cupboards for safe storage as you would expect. Bringing this and any other issues to the attention of your tutor would have been the best course of action. On a final note I hope you are able to use your training to some advantage in the future.

Regards

Trade Skills 4U

“17 day domestic Installer package - Tradeskills4u”

Written on: 05/12/2012

Have just finished this course and was very pleased. Im a service leaver with no previous electrical experience and havn't sat in a classroom for around 8 years. Theres a lot to take in and all the tutors were extremely helpful in making sure everyone was happy and understanding. All tutors were either electricians or electrical engineers with at least 20 years experience in the game and were willing to pass on the best of their knowledge and advice, not only to get us through exams but also… Read Full Review

“Unvented Hot Water Course”

Written on: 20/07/2012

Attended this course on the 18th July and can honestly say it was fantastic. Im a 43 year old guy who has been in the Commercial Installation buisness for over 20 years and have to say Our trainer Terry White, really deserves credit. The course covers quite a lot over a short period of time (1 Day) and so it really helps when your tutor spends time explaining in detail and plain and simple english to get his point across. Get this guy for your course, you won't be disappointed… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/04/2012 by westlondont (1 review written)

Completed the Green Course, a very very good centre, I really can not recommend them highly enough. Before going for Tradeskills I had looked at a couple of other places who offered similar courses at a slightly cheaper price but was very glad I opted for Tradeskills4u. Their facilities are superb, all the equipment that you need to get you through the course is there. During the course, which was approximately 4 weeks, we had 3 tutors, Andy, Paul and Terry taking different aspects of the… Read Full Review

“GREAT Experience at Trade Skills 4u”

Written on: 22/02/2012 by JeremyEllis (1 review written)

I have done the MOD1 5 Day course at Trade Skills 4U in Crawley and cannot recommend them highly enough. The staff and tutors are great and the course was very well run and presented. This week I went along to do the 4 Day Inspection & Testing City & Guilds 2392-10: TS4U-92 but was too ill to be able to continue with the day. They were so supportive and understanding and have allowed me to re-book the course at another time when I am well again, with no financial penalty at all. I could not be… Read Full Review
