    Could anyone vouch for MJ Electrical Training?
    They offer the 18th Edition Exam – Bristol £222

    I typically google reviews and this company has all al 5-star reviews which is quite incredible.

    I hope that this is the right forum.

    how do you know that?

    are you looking at an independent review site, or just the ones the company publishes itself?

    i googled and it shows at https://www.reviews.co.uk/company-reviews/store/mjelectrical-training1

    There is not a single bad review there which is unexpected.
    I anticipated to find some comments like "the room was cold", "the invigilators were harsh" etc, but no, all 5 star. Looks dodgy to me. Hence the question.

    I don't know anything about them. But the review page link shows one example of 1 star, a couple of 3 star, and some 4 star. (from memory). They are not all on the first page you look at.
    The one star was something like: 'I took the test twice and failed both times.

    I did mine all online at home, the company i used just give you a link to there course, that you read in your own time.
    Then when your ready you email them to book the test and just turn up.

    it worked out fine.
    passed 85% following their online training course.
    no issues except the damned face masks required for bloody 2 hours sitting the exam.

    Update on this feed for anyone interested..

    Just did my 18th edition & ECS with MJ Electrical in Basingstoke last week, it was all OK I passed with 75%.

    The online course was pretty good nothing special the exam was clean, tidy and organised - Still facemasks!!!, and there was only 4 of us taking the exam in my time slot, I did bring this up with the invigilator as we were all very spaced out :(

    Update the website has now changed its internet title

    https://mjelectricaltraining.co.uk/

    I also did an ECS health and safety exemption to sort my Gold Card out with them, easy pass.

    Not a FIVE-star company but definitely a FOUR in my book. A Ronseal type set-up, good luck.
