The school is willing to work with you, graduated in may in the electrical program, and still got companies calling. The instructors do know their stuff for the most part. Its a good school if you wanna learn the basics, before you go for a electrical apprenticeship or become a helper.This instructor Mr krush knew hes stuff, really helped the students out.

Went to Berk trade school last year June 2018 to January 2019, got to say this is way better than any other school out here . I graduate here last two weeks as an electrician. Mr carrion the instructor is very calm and nice person . The staffs in the office is very nice and friendly. Only problem I use to hate here is the bathroom. People will use it and not flush , but got to say I will recommend anyone here to this school.
