Reactfast Training Birmingham

Course feedback

Reactfast:( is offering one of these great courses to us want to be electricians, with all the hopes of getting you where you need to be to get a job


With this company you will get your 16th edition and also you part p logic. Meet really friendly tutors and make great friends. They have a works shop that is great for helping you learn the basic skills to go out there and work ok people houses

The stuff you will take in will amazed you both good and bad!!

If you want my opinion I’d say look elsewhere the only thing that Reactfast:( are good for is taking your money . . . then after that all there interested in is getting you out the door as quick as they can! Yeah I got my 16th edition and everything else there offering.

If you pay this money to Reactfast:( you will feel over charged at the end of it and you will see their company will not help you get employment after you have phoned every company going and been told that you lack of experiences cannot help you.


And then if you think of going back to get some more advice from them . . . they just toe the line and say keep looking someone’s going to need a mate :(. . . . This is after you have paid you money and sat there coursing. Before you pay the money the line is that there are not enough electricians out there!


I could go on but reading gets to people

what i will say is dont be put of trying to move into this option as a job just shop around for training you can get more for less money :)


This is my course feedback for reactfast:( if you want to know anymore PM me

I went to an open day here two weeks ago, No hard sell:eek:, just show you what you can learn on the course:rolleyes:. The was some students there doing a free(so they say) 17th update. But i must say it looks a great setup to learn in. They change £4785+vat for six weeks training 17th ED plus PART P.

Sounds very expensive to me! :mad:

You guys should try your local colleges before you pay out to any of these private businesses.

If you live in the Birmingham area try the Dudley College of Technology

Dudley College Part - Time Courses

Think you will find a big difference in the Prices for the 17th Edition & Part P courses. :)

Good luck with your studying!

I attended the Reactfast training centre in Atherton Manchester on a flexile basis I'm not a complete novice has I've done some electrical work in the past also working on the retail side have pretty good product knowledge I found the facilities to be spot on the pratical work was also very hands on I would suggest though trying if you can to do it as the complete six week block as it's structured a bit back too front upside down as when on the flexi you have to wait until the final two weeks to do your part p and wiring regs exams then it's out the door you go with not much more than a thank you, unlike the full six weeks who do part p on the third week, wiring regs on the fifth and a final week of q&a, brush up etc... A little worrying though was the fact that between March and July not less than 6 members of staff were given thier p45 so I really can't see the Atherton centre lasting also the cost isn't set in stone as some guys on the course had done deals and received very good discounts ;0)
 
i attended the atherton,manchester training centre i too was worried about the cost, but as it was the only provider near me i visited last feb to have a look around and over the next few months they kept in touch. the first price they give me was over£5,000 and said they would knock £100 off for coming through the door i thought that doesnt make much difference the after another few months they said they would knock £500 more off i still waited as it seemed a lot then eventually in june 2009 they again contacted me and told me they were doing a summer discount and it was for £4.020,which was for 6 week training,megger 1552,basic ck toolkit £100+ in c.p.c catologue,onsite guide and bs7671. also the qualifications were only the 17th and part p before i attended and we were the first group to get c&g 2382,part p, 2377 pat testing ad 2393 building regs. the two instructors pete and chris were very knowledgable their methods of getting you through work chris provided a website were we could download lots of info inc certificates ie minor,eic,periodics and lots of other useful stuff i did find it intensive as they said but very enjoyable and out of the group of 7 . 6 of us passed everything with great exam results the one who did not was a lady who gave up after doing the 2393 and failing this was through her ow fault as she didnt revise enough overall expensive but enjoyable now i am lookig to do 2391 somewhere local to me leigh, lancs anybody know a good provider cheers

Hi Bobby, read ur article on reactfast and agree with what you have said. i did the course last year june-july. I would just like to ask you the prices you charge cutomers e.g per hour and call out charge, this would be a great help to me.
