In my opinion bark trade school it the best school that you can go to the staff and instructors are very friendly including the students...I recommend taking Mr.Velez class if you want to get in to the trade of plumbing he’s a very nice guy and he’ll really help you learn all you need to know about plumbing but you have to put in the effort in getting here early and showing that u want to be here and show that you want to learn all there it to know about plumbingPs don’t go to apex you just going to waste your time and money the plumbing instructors there don’t know anything they just follow what the book says and the reason why is because they are not real plumbing they are just normal teachers....

Im a graduate of Berk Trade School. They have morning and night schedule, usually 10-15 people in a class. I took 6-10pm class with 30 minute break.The materials they provide for practical is garbage. They give you used stuff such as 1900 boxes, connectors, electrical panels, and more. They’re worn out too much that none of the knock outs were left on the 1900 boxes and panels and screws were missing on the connectors.It really depends on the instructors, and the mind set of students. Many of them are high school graduates (or less). The students aren’t really motivated. Thank God my instructor was very nice and passionate. But he had troubles with the mean Chinese lady there (which i believe she was the principal) he got fired.They were supposed to help the students finding job after graduation, but it also didn’t go well. I have sent them numerous emails about finding a job but they never repliedBut I’d recommend here than Apex if you’re into electrical or plumbing.+one more thing, they make you pay for the tools they provide, which are a few hundred bucks worth garbage. They won’t let you take the option out from the tuition.The tuition I spent here did not worth anything but the paper you get for graduation.
