What our customers are saying about our Florida Exam Preparation Program
John & Mike I wanted to drop this short note to say THANK YOU for all your efforts. I passed the technical portion of the Alarm 1 test today. I passed the business in October, both on the first try! I had to go to Gainesville, FL to take it, but it was worth the drive. The material in the workbooks, class handouts and NEC Notes really hit the nail on the head. John told us a LOT of good stuff - it was all TRUE. This class was THE BEST!!!!! I will recommend this to anyone who asks.THANKS A MILLION.
John and George were great they made the class fun. I could not have done this without Mike Holt's Program.
I took the tests 2 days after the class and passed, so the answer is ABSOLUTELY the content is appropriate and relevant...John made it fun which helped break up the brain overload. He did a fantastic job and I would recommend this class anytime.
The Florida State Exam class was great and John and Jorge were both excellent, I would recommend it to anyone trying to get either of the electrical licenses. I would rate the course a 10. I learned plenty but, the most important was precisely how to prepare for the test including what to expect the testing environment to be like, what the test questions will be like, and how they may ask for answers in different ways. All around John was not just a great instructor but he was also a great guy to spend that much time with. He did a good job of breaking up the monotony of studying with good humor and other insights relevant to the trade.
The instructor had great humor and his pointers were invaluable. The most important thing learned was tabbing the reference books and how to find the information properly to pass the exam in the time allotted. Nothing but praise for the office experience. Never a question unanswered and the email reminders were very helpful. The online access to the learning materials was perfect for today's technology. I passed both exams.
The instructor was very professional and knowledgeable. He has a great sense of humor. The class forced me to dig in and improve where I was weak. I learned where I was at in my education and what I needed to work on. Everyone I have dealt with in the office was professional and genuinely interested in getting me the products I needed to be successful. The homestudy material got me familiar with how the reference material for my exams were laid out and how to effectively navigate through them. I passed the technical portion and the business portions of the Unlimited Electrical Contractors' exam.
Well-structured course, John did a great job of answering the questions and moving through the courses. Brilliant instructor and his knowledge blows you away!! When interacting with the office staff, I worked mostly with Ilene. She was OUTSTANDING and very knowledgeable of the process. I would recommend that anyone at any level take the six-day class.
John, the instructor was the best! Great venue, great time and speed. The most important thing learned was how to organize books and notes for the exam.
John was the greatest guy and best teacher. I came into the class having failed both my business and technical exams twice, with roughly a 68. I took the business exam already and passed. I take my technical exam on Jan 3rd. John taught me how to better navigate the books.
John, my instructor, did very well at explaining things. I liked the way he spaced things out, as I was able to clear my mind for a bit before getting more and more information. The most important thing learned was how to navigate through the reference books using clue words to point you to the correct book! The office staff was great with everything. The homestudy material has all the information needed.
John was a great instructor. He knows what he is talking about and helps you understand the code and reference books better. He gives great test taking tips and advice. The most important thing I learned was how to navigate and understand the different reference books. Also how to prepare for and take the test.
The most important thing I learned was how to organize my reference books for the exam and how to highlight everything. Also the way John taught everything step by step. I'm glad that I came to the seminar. I loved everything about the homestudy material.
John, the instructor, is extremely knowledgeable, well prepared, and overall great! His stories in between instruction were great to break the monotony. The home study information covered a lot of the basics. Being an alarm guy, it was helpful to get my bearings. I haven't taken my tests yet, however, I feel very confident. I truly believe that if you go to class, pay attention and trust in the system, your chances of successfully completing the tests are greatly enhanced.
I would recommend your Florida State Class to anyone that wants to pass their exam! John, the instructor, did a fantastic job. He really knows how to keep everyone’s attention each day so we can stay focused. I also liked how he taught tricks on how to remember series-parallel, transformers and other topics. The most important thing I learned was how to take the test – you should answer all of the questions you know, write down the other ones you don’t, and then go book by book to find the answers. Everyone in your office is super friendly and helpful too, you really care about helping your customers succeed!
I highly recommend the Florida State Class! John, the instructor, is the man! He made everything easy to understand, and kept everyone focused and on task.
I just finished the technical portion of your exam prep class yesterday; I had already passed my business exam. John is an excellent instructor, so I was prepared for my exam. I passed my Unlimited Electrical Contractor’s test today! I could not have done this without you, I spent the past two months watching your videos. I was prepared for the in-person exam prep better than most. When I took the test there were less than 10 questions that I did not know; I was able to find 5 of them on my own and the other 5 were answered “C”. I want to say thank you to you and your team – your team made it easy from beginning to end. Keep doing what you are doing! It makes a big difference to guys like me.
The Florida State Class was on point with getting through the books and materials, and the course outline was great! John, the instructor, is a great guy – he’s hard and fast paced, but he also knows when the class is starting to get overwhelmed and dials it back to allow you to get caught up. I also liked the Homestudy material, especially the way Mike broke the DVDs and books down, it was so easy to comprehend the NEC. He really is the Industry leader, hands down! I recommend every electrician purchases the Bonding & Grounding series at minimum, watches the DVDs, and then re-watches the DVDs. Keep up the great work!
I give this course a 10. I learned how to navigate all of the test books. Everything was great. John knows the material. I passed both business and unlimited EC exams.
The most important thing I learned was how to navigate through the Florida Contractor’s manual which was very confusing for me. I don’t see how this course can be improved. John is a very knowledgeable guy and fun to be with. Excellent experience!!! Thank the whole team for the service you provide.
John is an amazing instructor! He is extremely knowledgeable and is willing to help everyone. I liked how we started out with the business test first – I felt that most people taking the test thought this was a weak point for them, but the way John breaks the book apart and teaches you how to navigate through it definitely makes you feel more at ease. The Homestudy portion was great too, if you go through all of the material and do the tests during class with John, you will not have a problem passing your test!
I can’t thank you enough! John is a great instructor and the materials that were given out during class are extremely helpful, especially the tips on how to approach taking the exam. The two most important parts I learned were getting familiar with the Business portion of the exam and how to simplify calculations. I also loved the DVDs that were included in the Homestudy materials. Mike Holt and his team have helped me tremendously, thank you!
I heard this class was the best, my boss recommended it and it certainly made a difference! I learned test taking skills and confidence building. The instructor helped break down the books and had great practice questions to help prepare us for the test, he was the best teacher for this subject!
I have passed the business portion of my exam on the first try, still waiting for my technical portion, but I strongly feel I wouldn't have performed the same without this class! I learned how to navigate the Florida business manual better, and how tabbing this and the other books are key. My instructor John was great! He was on point and did great preparing us for the exam, he was also very helpful with all of the training materials.
I took the Florida State Exam class and passed the business and the technical tests the first time. John was the instructor and he was outstanding! He provided all kinds of information that helped a great deal. It’s a bit grueling, the class started at 8AM and ended around 10PM and lasted for 4 days, but you come out very prepared. It took 3 weeks before I got an appointment to take my 2 tests and that made me nervous, but because of my preparation I passed both tests on the first try. I have also taken the Mike Holt license renewal CEUs ever since. This is the place to do your studies, especially if you want to be ready for your test and get very valuable information - this is where you need to be!! I love the services and materials they provide, and will use Mike Holt every 2 years forever! I give them 5 out of 5 stars!
John, the Instructor for the Florida State Exam Preparation class, was very knowledgeable and had great information. The most important part I learned was the different methods of calculations – the amount of information in this class was really helpful! I also loved the visual aids in the Homestudy materials, it helped me understand the Code more profoundly. Thank you Mike Holt and your team!
This class was as good as it can get! John, my instructor, was awesome – he was straight forward and most importantly, he broke down the books and how to use them. I even got a 99 on my first take on my electrical business test!
John, my instructor, did a great job...he was awesome! He taught us very important skills on how to manage time. This course was top notch!!
Thank You for all your help. I really do appreciate all your efforts. Jon Mills was a great instructor, the Class was so helpful in understanding the Test and how the Books are structured. I took both Unlimited Exams yesterday and this morning, and Passed Both. The Class really helped. Thanks again.
The most important thing I learned was how to use the books and what the test is about. I loved John, he is great and has a lot of knowledge.
I was pleased with the complete step-by-step products. Getting my EC through your program has changed my life. I wish I did it 20 years sooner.
Everything was great, I would not have passed without your help. John, my instructor, was awesome and he is very smart. Thank you.
The class was perfect. John is a wealth of knowledge. Everyone at Mike Holt is fantastic. Thank you all, I really like the Mike Holt products, well thought out.
John was awesome. I learned so much about how to prepare for the test from John & how to take it. John knows all about the test & has some awesome tools in his teaching criteria.
I took the Florida License prep class you provide and passed the Business and Technical tests the first time. John was the instructor and he was outstanding with all kinds of information that helped a great deal. I passed both tests first try and have taken the Mike Holt license renewal CEUs ever since. This is the place to do your studies!!! If you want to be ready, and get very valuable information, this is where you need to be!!! I love the services and materials you provide and will use Mike Holt every 2 years forever! I give you 5 out of 5 stars!!!
John, my instructor, was the best. He transforms the class into a learning environment combined with real stories. I recommend your company 100% to everyone who wants to become an electrical professional.
My instructor, John, was informative and entertaining. He pushed people, not to just get licensed, but to excel in the profession. He had a calming and reassuring voice about taking the exam. The most important thing learned was how to manage the time on the test and how to tab the hot subjects. The office personnel were great to deal with.The homestudy material made me feel very prepared going into the review course, I scored an 86 technical and a 96 business on the first practice exam. You must watch the videos to be prepared for the class. If you do the homework, success will follow.
The teaching was excellent, my instructor, John, did a wonderful job of getting all of the info into the time he had us there for. He was funny, John had a good attitude which is a very positive thing to have with so many different types of personalities in the class. The office experience with this course was excellent, a very easy process. Great course and excellent value. Start to finish, there is a lot of information to handle and this class was a must. Super happy I took the course by Mike Holt with John teaching. I scored a 99% on my Business test yesterday and I take the technical 3/18/20.
The most important thing I learned was how to take the test, time management and using the books. John does a great job of engaging the class and keeping the momentum going. He is extremely knowledgeable and has a great way of conveying his knowledge to the class. The class is full of useful information. The exams help you gauge your progress and the study aids are very helpful. Keep up the great work. I have already told several of my industry friends this is the way to prep for their license and test.
Best takeaway was how to prioritize the time during the exam. Also John’s (my instructor's) knowledge on the subject matter was very effective in instructing. Very knowledgeable, and in control of the class at all times. The office was very helpful. The home study material is well put together. The graphics are very useful.
I was most pleased that I could speak with knowledgable and very friendly people on the phone. I was able to ask questions and have an overall good relationship.
My instructor was very knowledgeable. The experience we had with your office was courteous and helpful. I passed both the Business and Technical exams on the first attempt. So to John, George and everyone at Mike Holt Enterprises...Thank you!!!
Very good instructor that knows the material and stays on track. It is obvious that a lot of time and resources go into production of both the videos and the books. Thanks to your entire staff for providing a great service to your customers!
John Mills is a matter-of-fact, straightforward, comical and captivating instructor. You could sense his sincerity as he always demonstrates a personal effort and interest in helping all the students pass the exam. Thank you John Mills! He helped me not only get my state license, but I just passed the Commercial Inspector's exam as well. In the last few weeks I spoke with Angela, Ilene and Jeff. They are personable, people oriented, and helpful. Mike Holt is blessed having you guys on the team.
My instructor John, had great presentation skills, "edutainment". He gave me a level of confidence for passing the exams.
I have been in this industry for 16 years and John was the best Instructor I have ever met. I really helps that he has a great sense of humor. The home study material was very organized.
John (my instructor) was great. I made a 99 on my Business test, first try. When you leave his class, you have confidence that you can and will succeed in passing any test. John keeps you engaged and laughing, even when the topic is very dry. The most important thing I learned was how to prepare for the test and to know that I am not alone. There are many people in similar circumstances, trying to improve their lives. When I called the office, my questions were answered or referred to John, who was able to answer them. Everyone was very helpful. The delivery of the home study material was prompt.
John is really a good instructor. He went through every book and explained what to highlight in order to quickly and efficiently find it at test time. I really enjoyed him at the class. The office experience was smooth, placing my order was really simple and easy. The home study material was impressive.
John is simply the best...super knowledgeable teacher. The office experience was really good, they were always on top of everything.
John, the instructor, was excellent and the office staff was great. With the home study material and the class, I felt prepared and I have already passed the business section.
The most important thing I learned was the proper way to take exams. The instructor was very knowledgeable and kept everyone focused. He covered all the bases. The office staff was excellent and the home study material was well structured.
The most important thing learned were the specific areas to concentrate on within the reference books. The instructor, John, is excellent and very knowledgeable. He keeps the attention of the class! The office staff was excellent and all the home study materials pertained to questions I eventually saw on my exams.
Student, October, 2019 Class
The course was spot-on!! I loved it! Calculations were made so easy!! The instructor was brilliant! The office experience was great. The home study material was everything I needed.
The most important thing I learned was how to do calculations. The class gave me the basics throughout all the books that I needed to pass the test. John and George, the instructors, were awesome. They kept everyone interested in class. Never a boring or dull moment. The office staff was great as well. Setting up the class was easy and they were friendly. I understood the books better after they were explained to me, I’m not a book guy but more of a field guy. I tell people about your class all the time if they are thinking of getting a license.
John was a great instructor and made the class interesting and fun. To be honest, when the class was over I didn’t think I got much from the class, but I soon realized that the way John thought the class, I absorbed almost everything he taught. He prepared me to take both tests, and I passed both on the first try. Thank you John for helping me pass both tests.
I took my exams and passed them. I had to repeat the technical exam because the first time I failed, but the second time it was wonderful. I want to thank you for your patience and affection that you put into the class. The truth is, that in my case, you made it less difficult despite the language barrier. John you are an amazing teacher. I extend my thanks to you and I am available for anything I can help you with.
Maria Luisa Baque M
You taught me how to take the exam and what information to look for on the exam.Taught me how tab and highlight your books properly. Everything was on point. John is very good at being an instructor and giving the material in an easy way to understand. He is a very knowledgeable individual. Everyone with the office was Fantastic! My overall experience with the seminar and office was awesome! I cannot thank you guys enough for the exceptional job Mike Holt Enterprises has done for me. I passed both the Business and Technical exams for Alarm 1 the first time around! Thanks Again!
The most important thing I learned was going through the contractors manual and getting straight with all the taxes and workman’s comp and other legal standards. John was an awesome instructor...there is nothing he could do any better. I passed both of my tests the first time with a score of 99. John was the most entertaining and insightful instructor I’ve have had the pleasure of learning from!! A true master at his expertise. Everyone at your office is just as good as John. I would recommend to any of my friends that wanna get their license to go thru the Mike Holt experience!!!
This was a great course! The Instructor was great and I highly recommend the course! He was amazing and made it very easy to understand the books and their layout. He provided so much useful information on test taking strategies and utilizing the books effectively. I tested 2 days immediately following the course as recommended, and I passed the first time! I scored a 99! Thank you John and everyone on the Mike Holt Team!
The most important thing I learned was how to quickly navigate the books that the exam criteria is based on. The presentation was excellent. It is a LOT of material to cover in 5 days and I think it was as balanced as it could have been. The 5 practice exams for both Business and Technical were GREAT. I am very much a "learn by repetition" student so this was a big help in understanding what to expect at game time on exam day. The back and forth from the Business exam material to the Technical exam material prevents anyone from getting overloaded and lets us reset. The fast pace keeps everyone on their toes. John is obviously a talented presenter and exam coach and his fast pace approach is what helped keep me engaged for 14 hours a day, 5 days in a row. I am hoping to have him as my instructor when I come back for my Unlimited Exam Prep class! I've taken training classes from 10+ organizations who provide home study material...Mike Holt's material is still far and away the best I've seen. I passed both of my exams on the first attempt and am now coordinating with API to apply for my license. THANK YOU for the reference to API by the way...they have been a great help.
Good prep materials and great instructor. Just listen to John, he knows his stuff! The perfect blend of sense of humor and down to earth, while keeping different personalities and knowledge levels on pace. Good follow up emails from your office after registration.
The most important thing I learned was where to find the information needed in a timely manner in the books for the test. John (my instructor) is amazing. He keeps the class fun, all while drilling information into your brains (lol), keep doing what you're doing. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. They will answer any of your questions promptly. The home study material prepared me for the class. I passed both exams the first try with a score of 99.
Hello to Mike and his great team. I want to thank you for helping me to pass the exam, I cannot tell you how much time I spent watching your DVDs and studying your books. You made it easy and enjoyable. It was exactly what I needed to understand the NEC. You are doing a wonderful job and you are inspiring. Thank you for the little bag of Jelly Bellies. Best wishes,
I was impressed by the delivery and execution of the entire presentation. It was completely a great way to get away and study, undivided and truly just pure crunch time. The first day you made me realize how much I didn’t know about taking a test. The most important thing I learned was confidence and how to successfully take a test. John, the instructor, was superb. The office staff exceeded any customer service department that I know of. I passed my test! Keep it up Mike Holt and remember, you are making a difference.
The most important thing I learned was that with preparation, there's no reason to stress. I describe John, my instructor, as a confidence man, and I appreciated his time. I passed both exams. It was great meeting Mike Holt.
The most important thing learned was how to find information quickly in each book. The before class home-study preparation is a must. The entire review ultimate library that I bought had me completely ready for the class. The material was in line with what was on the test. The instructor John was fantastic. He teaches very well. Really knows his stuff. The office was great. Ilene and Jeff kept me informed in every step of the process. I am so thankful that you guys exist. I have learned so much from the products you produce. I look forward to purchasing more of your materials for continuing education. I want to support your company because you helped me get this done. I am very happy I took your class.
I just wanted to say thank you FROM the bottom of my heart! I took my exams and passed them on my first shot! Your exam prep course was phenomenal, and I firmly believe that without it, I would not have passed. Mike, I thank you for saying something that stuck with me. One of the other students asked something along the lines of how do we keep from stressing the what ifs. You told us, who cares. If we don't pass, to not give up and to keep trying. That stuck with me and calmed me down. While I was in the exams, that was what I kept telling myself. John, you are an amazing instructor. The little tricks (easy as pie) helped. and I liked the way you kept it all interesting. I thought going in, it was going to be miserable...14 hour days of electric, how could I stay focused, but you did it. I will highly recommend your classes. Once again from the bottom of my heart, my family and I thank you for the amazing opportunity we now have. I look forward to continuing to push onwards and open new doors. See you next year for my continuing education if not sooner.
These 6 days changed my life. Best instructor I've ever seen!! I was extremely happy with this class.
The video and the text are so very informative and at the same time interesting, offering way more info than just the topics at hand. They compel a student to stay in the material, even look forward to it. So much education is just plain boring and hard to understand. Mike Holt's info is designed by true communicators...taking the complex and simplifying it, while encouraging the student to reach for greater heights. I also appreciate the statement of faith. I'm just completely satisfied and wish I'd had access to this study material years ago. With genuine gratefulness and applause..
I really appreciate the support of you guys and I’d like to thank instructors John and George for the excellent presentation they did for all of us...Awesome. The most important thing we learned was how to take the test. The office staff maintained communication with me from day 1.
Most important was the understanding of how all the books were written and organized to quickly find the area where the answer will be. Everything was done at a top notch level. I think the presenter John, did an exceptional job of keeping the lectures interesting. The office staff was easy to work with and were as friendly as could be. Got a 99% on both tests first try!
I really liked the way he (John) controlled the class. He presented it in a great manner.
The most important thing I gained was confidence and test taking skills. Mr. Mills was very good at confidence building, book organizing and comic relief. The office experience was excellent. The representative who answered the phone was very kind and encouraging. I took the business exam 5 days after the class and passed on first take? I take the technical on 3/19, and I feel really confident. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting to get their license.
The presentation was excellent! The practice exams and the highlighting of books were very helpful. The information presented was up-to-date and current with the test. John was very personable. He answered all questions that were asked. His hands-on field experience was very helpful. He explained things clearly. The office experience was excellent. Ilene was extraordinary! I enjoyed the class and I will attend future Mike Holt presentations.
John is the best instructor I've ever had in my 20 year career. Extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to each individual student's needs. The office experience was excellent!! The home study material was perfect.
The most important thing I learned was how to read the questions and prepare for the test. I liked the recommendations on how to take the test and what to expect. The instructor was very accommodating, went above and beyond, did not rush and was very patient. The office personnel were very professional. I think the home study material was very helpful to prepare for class.
The most important thing we learned was to stay organized, prepared and focused. Mr. John is the man. He is understanding, helpful, very knowledgeable and especially motivating with taking the test and other aspects in life. The office experience was great.
The most important things learned were test taking skills and navigating the NEC. John is a great teacher. The way he manages the class and educates you really makes the information stick. The office personnel were very helpful. The home study material makes something very complex easy to understand.
Great over-all experience. My dad took this course after his first attempt for his license failed, and then passed, This was my first time taking this course and I passed my test the first time. My brother will be going to your class when he gets ready to take the test. I can't be more happy with my experience with this class as well as the networking.
The most important thing I learned was how to analyze the question and relate it to what book the answer is in. The exam prep seminar focused on passing the exam. Don't overthink the process. Follow the process and you will pass. John did great with applying real world scenarios and relating them on how to prepare for and take the test. Every time I call for support, I get great customer service! I appreciate the fact that you value your customers.
The most important thing I learned was how to use the other Code reference books and contractor's manual that are not used much as a Journeyman. I think that the class was close to flawless. John explained things so well that even someone that wasn't an electrician would have been able to understand. He showed us that the exam was not difficult if you paid attention to how to use the Code books. He did a very good presentation. Better than some of the monotone speakers that I have heard. He made sure that everyone understood the subject before proceeding. Everyone that I spoke to at the office was very helpful and had a positive attitude about the material. The DVD's were very helpful. Mike does a very good job with the subject material. I have already recommended this class to other electricians. I told them that it would make continuing their careers much easier.
This class was instrumental to my success on the state exam. It provided techniques and proven methods on how to use the books. John was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Although the class was long hours it did not seem that way because of John's excitement.
The most important thing I learned was how to actually take the exam. Also, how to highlight and navigate through all of the reference books. The class is fantastic. John covered everything that I saw on my exam. John is hands down the best instructor. He obviously knows his stuff! Your office really cares about your students. The home study has a ton of useful information and really made me confident going into the class and ultimately my exams. Thank you Mike Holt Enterprises! I couldn't recommend your products any higher. Thanks to your Florida Electrical Contractor Exam Prep Class, I passed both of my exams on my first attempt! If you are taking the Electrical Contractor exams, you cannot afford to miss this class. Thanks again.
, Moore Electric Company
The most important thing I learned was how to assess the test and pace myself. John was a pleasure, he kept us all awake and engaged. The office experience was exceptional, everyone is on board and looking out for our best interests. It was easy to understand and thorough.
The most important thing I learned was how to prepare for the structure of the exam and navigate the books. â€‹You helped eliminate any mystery or intimidating elements of taking the exam. The team did an amazing job of making me feel prepared for the exam. I’ve taken both exams (Alarm 1 and Business) and passed each on the first try. I can’t tell you how helpful the class was in preparing me and providing confidence in taking the exam.
The class was excellent. The instructor was knowledgeable and knew when to insert a joke to keep the class awake. The most important thing I learned was how to manage my time and take advantage of every minute available during the test. Also, what not to do during the test. The idea of taking tests the first day was brilliant because it set the tone for the rest of the class. John is one of the best instructors I have taken a class with. He was professional and had great control of the class and the material. The videos and books really helped me refresh my knowledge. They are concise and provide an abundant amount of information.
I came into the class feeling, what I considered to be, very unprepared. I ended the class feeling prepared and passed both tests. John, the instructor, was great. His experience with the information, and years of teaching, made the class informative and pleasurable. I have never had a bad experience with Mike Holt.
Hands down the best company I’ve come across for exam prep. I had an ER license and wanted to get my EC. Having taken a similar test for the ER, I just got the home study package. It was absolutely brilliant! I’ve been doing this for many years and thought I was reasonably sound as far as knowledge goes. But I would say the DVD package takes it to a whole other level. I particularly found the DVDs on Grounding and Bonding to be absolutely brilliant and a must watch for any electrician. This course is brilliant for exam preparation, but it’s so much more. It provides a new knowledge of fundamentals that no other course provides. I feel it’s a must for any electrical contractor regardless of whether you're taking a test. With Mike's package, I was able to pass my Unlimited EC license on the first try. Can’t thank Mike and his team enough. I would highly recommend this company.
Mike Holt's exam prep program is the best. I have taken other exam prep courses, none of which can compare to this course. I completed all of the study material before the class. The parts I had trouble with or didn't feel confident about, John, my instructor, broke it down and made it easy. I took my Unlimited Electrical Contractor's exams the following two days after the class, Thursday for the business, and Friday the technical. I passed both sections the first time with plenty of time to spare. For this I want to thank the Mike Holt team and John for helping me along this journey. I give this course a 10 out of 10. John covered everything needed to be ready for the exam and how to take the exam. I don’t think there is anything I would change about the class or the way it was structured. The material is everything you need and then some. The home study is perfect, just what is needed. John is very knowledgeable and one of the smartest instructors I have had. Anytime I would speak or email the office of Mike Holt, his staff were nothing but top notch and helpful. Always polite and genuinely wanting to help in anyway possible. For this, I highly recommend Mike Holt’s program and team to anyone. I am looking forward to completing my continuing education through Mike Holt. Thank you again for everything. You guys do an amazing job.
John is the best instructor EVER!!!!! The program could not have been any better, keep doing what you are doing. From the home study package to the class, everything was perfect. The home study material was perfect for preparing to take the exam. The most important thing I learned was how to confidently pass my Unlimited exam the first time. Questions on the practice tests were some of the same questions I had on my Unlimited Exam. I took my exam the day after class ended. I passed both the Business and Unlimited exams. I could not thank you and the entire Mike Holt team enough. Everyone at Mike Holt Enterprises was with me every step of the way. I could not have passed this exam without them.
It was a great review class. John helped get everyone prepared for their exam and how to take it..Great teacher! It was everything I needed to pass my exam. Everyone I talked with was very helpful!
Just passed my State Exam thanks to your books Mike. I will continue to buy and encourage others to buy your products. God bless

I just want to say thank you. I passed my Alarm II on my first try. The classes were great and very helpful. John kept us focused and entertained. I was never bored during the whole week….. Thank you everybody. God bless you all. It was worth it…..
I took the class this past week.with John Mills teaching. I passed both the business and technical on the first try. I think that is worth a 5-Star rating! Thanks a bunch John!!! Without your class it would have been so tough. I finished the business 1 hour early and finished the technical 2.5 hours early!! I scored a 99% on both. Mike Holt and John Mills and team are great and worth the time and money. See you for the next license.
The organization helped me pass my EC and Plans Examiner exams. The service I have received has been great. Thank you Mike for the great programs and study materials. Thank you so much , There are no words to express my gratitude.
John was funny and very good at communicating what he was teaching. I took both tests and passed both the first time. Thank you for all your help.
It was a pleasure to meet you Mike. Thank you for taking the time to speak with us. The class was a 10 because of all the knowledge I received and the level of comfort with the instructor, John. He makes the class interesting and gives the right breaks during class. The class was spot on.
The business section of the class was great. It is one of my weakest spots because I use accountants, payroll companies, etc. The class moved at the right pace, A lot of info in a short time. Friday to Wednesday worked great for me. Both instructors were very good. They went over the info and explained what to expect during the test. The home study material is great.
The class was awesome, very informative and John is the best instructor I have ever known, he cares about his students very much. He is funny, very knowledgeable and very easy to work with. I was one of two guys that stayed until the end every night, even past 10 pm and John was with us until we had no more questions to ask for the day/night. He cares! He’s an awesome dude! Also, it was very cool to meet Mike and to listen to his encouragements. The confidence in taking the exams that John gives you is top notch. It was good material, very helpful and easy to understand and use. Keep John and George for a long time, they are a super team out on the field. I am very happy to let you know that I passed both my Business exam as well as the Technical. YEAHH!! - Thank YOU GOD and you guys for your help and support. God bless you guys and please keep doing this awesome work.
The instructor, John, was great, informative and enjoyable. He took the time with all students to make sure they understood the material. Very easy to deal with and all of the material was very informative.
I was extremely happy with your class. The live class was great. I passed my exams with ease and only took ½ the allotted time needed on each one. I was the first one done on both tests and knew that I passed with no concerns. John was a GREAT instructor. I could not have asked for a better one. It is nice to see his confidence and it gave me the confidence to do great on my tests. I think I answered 70% of the questions on both exams before I opened the first book. He gave us all the tools needed to pass with ease. I got a 99 on both exams. The home-study material was helpful in getting me ready for class. The program was great. It was good to see that Mike took the time out of his busy schedule to stop by and see the class. Very professional.
John, our instructor, was entertaining as well as informative. I loved him! He taught us what we needed to be successful. Everyone at the office was helpful and friendly every time I talked to them. I passed both parts of the exam the first time.
There was a great overview of information and formulas needed to take the Florida test and great test taking skills to confidently take the test. The teacher, John, was very informative with all aspects of this test and what would be on it. The class was formal but informal at the same time (does that make sense?). You didn't feel like you were GLUED to the chair and could take a break if you needed to, whenever you needed to (which wasn't very often as you were afraid to miss something important)! YOU NEED THIS CLASS TO PASS THE TEST SUCCESSFULLY AND WITH CONFIDENCE!! All prep material was shipped immediately and you know EXACTLY what to bring to class. Books were easy to acquire and you gave us all the info to obtain them. Reminder emails were great to prepare you and give you vital information.
Just wanted to let you know how appreciative I am to you guys (especially John) for the services you provide! I took your Florida Electrical Contractors Seminar from June 24th - June 29th in Orlando. It was a LONG week and frustrating sometimes because of how much information there was to go over. Those tests were BRUTAL! John was GREAT. He explained all Business and Technical aspects of the test to us as well as the mathematical formulas we would need to remember. He not only went over the information that could be on the test but HOW to take the test and succeed. Your seminar gave me the confidence to calmly take these tests without panicking or getting frustrated. He drilled things in our mind that I still remember and will for years to come. I took my tests on July 12th (Business) and the 18th (Technical) locally here in Texas. Please relay to him that I passed them both with a 99.9!! Again, thank you guys so much as I COULD NOT HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU!!! YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!!
PS...WORTH EVERY PENNY!!
Just finished the State Electrical Class yesterday and passed both sections of the Florida Unlimited Electrical License today. John Mills is an amazing instructor and I wanted to personally say thank you. I will recommend this class to anyone wanting to pursue a license.
I started in the electrical trade roughly 25 years ago. Throughout those years, I constantly heard of Mike Holt and of the success rate of the students after taking his course. I honestly didn't believe that the pass rate could be so high, but I took the chance and enrolled for the Unlimited Electrical Contractor’s course. When I took the exam, I was fully prepared for both the EC and Business portions. I passed both with flying colors and I had plenty of time to review each and every question before I submitted my answers. I have kept in touch with a few of the guys that I met while taking the course, they all passed as well. One of the greatest joys in my life was to hand my father (a master electrician too) my test results and seeing him fill with pride. Thank you, Mike, for putting together such a great and skilled team that made my dream possible.
I used Mike Holt's DVD Library to study and pass my first Masters Test in Alabama 3 years ago. Since then I have obtained Licenses in numerous states across the country where my company performs work. Before each exam I use the same library to refresh myself to the test. I have never failed an Electrical or Business Law exam that I have taken. Thank you for providing training material that works. Since I started my company, I have intentionally not taken the Florida Exam and have turned down very good jobs in Florida because, to be honest, I did not feel I was prepared. Back in December of last year, one of my customers told me he needed my company to get the Florida License because he needed us to be able to wire Love's Travel Stops during 2015 and 2016. I told him that I would get the license. I knew that if was going to pass the first time I needed some in-class training because it is very difficult for me to make the time and fully prepare for the Florida Exam. I scheduled the Mike Holt Class and after attending I passed the first time. Needless to say, that was the best decision that I have made in a while. GREAT CLASS
As far as the Trainer, John Miles, his review techniques were amazing. His mixture of random talks, jokes and detailed information needed to pass the test was exactly what I needed. I have graduated electrical trade school and electrical engineering school and have learned techniques for calculations for all types of problems and have had some really great teachers. John was able to show me some new techniques for some of the same types of problems which allowed me to answer the math problem in half the time. The speed I gained in the test allowed me to have the time to search for some of the more difficult questions and be able to have a relaxed review once I answered the questions. (THAT IN ITSELF WAS WORTH THE MONEY I SPENT)
I recommend his training to everyone who is interested
I broke ground in Florida as an electrical contractor, June 22 2015, wiring a Love's Travel Stop. I AM PROUD TO SAY THAT MIKE HOLT'S TRAINING CLASSES HELPED IN MAKING THAT HAPPEN.
Just like to express my thanks to your whole team. Like I mentioned already, it was a pleasure to meet Mike. The class was great, and I can’t say enough about John. Outstanding job by everyone at Mike Holt. I passed both tests last week and I am now working my way through the application process with Jackie at API Processing. Thank you!
You were right the classes were intense. John did a GREAT job. I am so thankful that I took the class. I have taken license tests before but none were as tough as these in Florida. I passed the technical yesterday and the business test today. Praise God!
After a long weekend in Orlando taking The Unlimited State Prep Class ... not only did I pass the Business exam on the first try, but the Unlimited Exam seemed so easy. Passed it with 99%. Thanks to John & George for making it understandable. Anyone who needs to take the exam should take their training class if they want to pass on the first try.
Today I took my Business Exam and got a score of 99. If it wasn’t for John and George and of course Mike Holt for offering the classes, I don’t think that I could have done as well. A special thanks to you guys for all the work and effort you put in supporting us future contractors.
Thank you for your assistance with straightening out my exam.I am very happy to say that I passed both.
John and George were great and the system works well. Please send your dad a special thanks for stopping by on Sunday.
John did a great job on covering HOW to take the test. The highlights and short cuts on difficult questions came in handy. I passed the business test on the first attempt and the technical test on the second attempt. This has been a long time personal goal of mine and the Mike Holt system works if you buy in. Thanks John Mills and The Mike Holt Family.
The quality of the training material in the Florida Unlimited Electrical Contractor Program has been terrific and just continues to get better. I love the fact that Mike always credits and gives thanks to God.
The Florida Exam Prep Class provided the tools required to take the Exams. I learned how to efficiently find information in the reference books. Mr. Mills had the knowledge and skills required to teach the Exam Prep Class. He was available and willing to help with any and all questions. The home study material was good. I am pleased to let you know that I passed my Business and Technical Exams on the first try! The Mike Holt Exam Prep Class really helped me understand what to expect from the exam and how to be organized and prepared.
The Florida Exam Prep Class gave me the tools and knowledge to PASS both the Business and 5 1/2 hour technical Exams the 1st time!! John is GREAT, he is an AWESOME instructor! I would take another class with him being the instructor without a doubt. All in all, I would recommend this class and study material to anyone taking these exams. The overall experience was very good. Thank you for helping me PASS both Exams.
I passed. I was prepared for almost every question that was asked on the test. John’s style of teaching is inspiring, motivates you beyond this one test, it wouldn't be the same without him. I use the material for work, it is a great reference. I will recommend you to everyone.
John and Mike,
I would like to thank you both for offering and executing an excellent preparation course for the FL limited energy course. The printed and class materials more than adequately prepared me for both the business and technical tests and I am sure I scored 100 on both. I’ve been putting this off for years so it is very gratifying to finally have taken and passed the testing portion of the licensing requirements. I certainly will be recommending your program to my colleagues. Thanks again,
Thanks to John Mills and his methods for testing, time management and skill in all aspects of Electrical Contractor testing. I passed both parts of my Unlimited Electrical Contractor Exam Monday and Tuesday, thanks again..
I want to thank you for the great job you did preparing me for the Unlimited Electrical exam. I followed all of your advice and feel that the class was well worth the time and cost. It was a very tough exam and I did have to take it twice, but all of the information that was presented was relevant and very useful and ultimately got me a 99 on the exam. I would highly recommend this prep class for anyone taking the Florida Electrical Exam.

I just wanted to take a second to thank you and the program you guys have. With your help I passed the business with a 96 percent and the state unlimited with a 98 percent on the first try. Thank you guys - couldn't have done it without you all.
I used the combination of the master study guide and the class that was taught by John Mills, who by the way did an awesome job and has a great way of teaching. Passed both the Business and Technical section of my Florida Unlimited test on the first try. I couldn't have done it without the help of your crew, Mike. I tip my hat and say thanks and will definitely be seeing you guys again in my continuing education.
Mike and Team, I would like to let you know that your FL Electrical Contractors Test Material is great tool to use as you prepare for the exam. I have successfully passed both the business and technical portions of the test. The material is easy to follow and grasp. While working hand in hand with the study guides and code book, it has taught me how to use NFPA 70 better.
John was great. Super funny and super educational. I couldn’t imagine taking a class like this with an instructor with no personality. He was a perfect fit to teach a bunch of rough-tough tradesman. I passed both tests first try, and I’ve only been trying to get my license for about 2 months. Without the course, I wouldn’t have stood a chance. Thanks.
Dear Mike Holt team,
I can not emphasize enough how amazing this class was. With the class and the home study material I had no problems in passing my unlimited electrical contracting tests. Thank you!! The material was exactly what I needed. The most important thing I learned was how to use all of my books in order to take the test. John was amazing and is a top notch instructor. The only complaint was how cold he made it in there but I know it was to keep us awake!!!
Again thank you to everyone on the Mike Holt Team for everything you have done. I look forward to the CEU seminar this summer.
This course is a 9.5! The content was appropriate and relevant, and John is an awesome instructor. I passed both tests no problem!
The Florida Contractor exam prepation course is a10 all the way. Everything about the course was excellent, including the space where the course was held. The most important thing I learned was all the tricks we were armed with for making simple calculations, things that I normally have put to memory were made simpler with these tools; i.e..”Easy as PIE”. The course content was appropriate and relevant. The instructor, John, is amazing, engaging, interesting, never lost energy, never slowed down. For classes this long, that attitude was absolutely necessary.
I passed both my exams as of today and for that I thank you. In making the decision to take the test I turned to you guys. I was initially nervous about the course and test. I would rate the course a 99(John will understand). The most important thing that I took for the course was the ability to find answers to questions in the material provided. The disappointment about the class had to be the fire alarm going off at 430 in the morning on the first night, other than that no disappointments! During the test I felt completely confident about where to go and what to look for. That was due to the material being relevant during the class. John Mills was a great instructor. He gave a great deal of information in a short amount of time, you had to keep up. I would recommend this course to anyone that is preparing for their electrical exam.
This Florida State Class was a 10. I learned to pass this exam by focusing on what information is vital from the numerous textbooks. John is a very good instructor and kept the class fun and engaged. George was also a nice addition to John's performance. I passed my Electrical Business and Law the very next day, on Thursday 3/5; I passed my Electrical Unlimited that Friday 3/6. Both of these exams were my first attempt.
The class was AMAZING! I was one of two girls in a class full of guys, so that was a little intimidating but John and George are so inclusive that I never gave it a second thought after the morning on the first day of class. John's knowledge and ability to teach and capture our attention for hours at a time was absolutely incredible. I also did a couple months of studying with the DVDs and workbooks which made it a lot easier to understand what was being taught in the class. It was also very helpful to already have my books tabbed and highlighted.The expanded table of contents for the NEC book was a complete LIFESAVER during my testing. It is so worth the $20 and made finding answers quickly to some very obscure questions on my test. I took the business portion Friday and the technical yesterday (Saturday).
I was told by quite a few of my friends and business associates that I should expect to not pass the first time as they had never heard of anyone passing the exams the first time. Well I went into the tests feeling confident and very well prepared. Business took me an hour and 45 minutes, including the 15 minutes for the practice review and reviewing each answer thoroughly. I passed. Technical took me almost 5 hours and was very tough. I literally tally marked on my scratch paper only the questions I knew I had absolutely correct just to make sure I had 75 solidly answered. LOL. Oh my word! When I got to the counter, I turned the page over to see PASS!!! I was soo stoked and proud to tell all those naysayers, that yah, I passed both the first time!!
I have already hired Dawn and her team at API and to help me complete the necessary paperwork to be ready for the next Board of review in May to finish up the license.
Thank so much for everything!
This course is a 10! The most important thing I learned was how to utilize all of the other books besides the NEC. The ratio and lien sheet were a big help as well as the amount of time spent in the life safety going over diffrent occupancy and annex in the back of the book. All content was very useful and creative. John is a very smart guy and a very good instructor (also very funny.)
I rate this course a 10. The most important thing I learned was how to use the books, and test taking strategies. John knows his stuff and he gave me the confidence I was lacking in order to pass the exam on 1st try - I passed 1st try with a 99%
I passed both exams this past weekend. John's a very good instructor & covered the material thoroughly yet efficiently. Thanks for your help & encouragement. Kind Regards,
The most important thing I learned was was to expect on the test...getting an idea of how much I can anticipate seeing from each of the reference books. John was awesome. He made it easy to stay focused and actually absorb the material.
John is the best instructor I have ever had. He teaches everything you need to know for the test, he has that good moral character, he is a fun guy, he would make up a song, a phrase, even a dance to make you memorize stuff. The classes were very professional, easy to understand, and the schedule was performed in a timely manner. This course is a 10! I took both of my exams December 17th, a week after classes. I took business at 8am and passed, and the same day took technical at 3pm and passed. I was so confident going through the whole exam. I have and would recommend this class to everyone that wants to pass their exam the first time. Thanks John Mills, George Cancio and Mike Holt.
I passed the burglar alarm test today and the books that I bought from you were extremely helpful. The information was presented in a clear and concise manner. Sincerely,
I would rate the course a ten. I passed both my business and my unlimited test on the first try. I wouldn't have passed without the class. The most important thing I learned was how to take the test. John's method of writing down all the books first worked well. I finished both tests with lots of time left. The material was right on the mark. I was well prepared for both exams. John is a fantastic instructor. He does a great job of giving you little tricks to remember the information. He was always very professional and was always available if you had question. You guys are the best. Thank you for everything. Sincerely,
The most important thing was the review of several things I have not seen since my apprenticeship (30 years ago). While I am confident that I could have muddled my way through a review was very helpful as these were important to passing the exam. John did an excellent job. He is clearly qualified to teach this class and I learned a great deal from him. I currently hold license in 10 states with Florida soon to become number 11.
I appreciated John's ability to keep the class moving along rather than letting it get too deep in the weeds. I also think John did an excellent job with such a varied number of licenses represented in the class. I have run a business for several years and so I recognize an efficient organization with customer service as a core value. My interaction with everyone from Mike Holt Enterprises was accurate, timely and pleasant. Particularly Meghan who was very gracious when I had to reschedule my class. God Bless.
I rate John's State Class a 10 out of 10. All the info was relevant to the course of study and John and George made it a great learning environment. The most important thing I learned was how to maneuver the Mountain of Reference Manuals and how to Effectively take the Exam. As having just taken the EC Exam yesterday and Passing both the Technical and Contractor's Law, I would say the Material Covered is very relevant. John is a top-notch Instructor; anyone who can keep the interest of 30 plus Electricians for that may hours is doing something right. I would recommend this course to any Professional Electrician.
I passed the business with a 99% and tech with a 99%. Please tell John and George thank you. I am now the third generation of electrical contractor in my family. I can not wait to see what my license number is going to be. My grandfather's was 741, Dad's is 1187. I would rate this class a 10. The first day would have told you there is no way you would have gotten a 10, but after I figured out what John was trying to help us do the class got easier! The most important thing I learned was "Hammer" time (John will get it)- how to take the test and the proper approach. The content was appropriate and relevant; a lot of the items we covered in class were a great help with the test. John..... What to say. You have the right guy for the Job. He is one of the most well-versed teachers I have ever had the opportunity to know. You can see and feel his passion. You cannot help but get infected by it. I was very nervous about sitting for my class, let alone the test. I put it off for 2 years! (What a waste). He gets you prepared like no other ( If you are open and willing to put in the time). Thanks again,
John did a great job! He was charismatic and really made the subject interesting. You can really tell he loves to teach and loves the subject matter. John and George are a great team, they really helped with keeping things on track throughout the week. I took the technical portion of the test and passed, no problem. A testament to your course and instructors. I'm scheduled for my business exam on the beginning of the new year...
Mike, I really enjoyed the Florida state exam class. I don’t believe I could have passed the exam without it. I would definitely give it a 10. John kept the class entertaining, while still teaching us the material we needed. I felt extremely confident leaving the class last Wednesday. I took my business on Thursday and the Technical on Friday, passed them both with ease. I would say the most important thing I learned was that I knew the material. John kept stressing to us that we would be fine. I believe the content was perfect. Please go ahead and use my comments in the future. I will definitely be contacting you when it comes time for my CEU’S. Thanks for all the help, Soon to be licensed EF Contractor
I PASSED THE BUSINESS AND UNLIMITED 1st TEST! The course was a 10! Thanks John, the course built my confidence and enabled me to pass both of my tests (business and unlimited electrical) the first time.
Hi guys! Just want to say thanks to all of you at MHE for your help!I passed BOTH of my exams with very little trouble and time to spare. As for the class, it took me where I needed to be to pass those babies! John Mills is great. I'm looking forward to taking more study courses and will definitely tell anyone interested about the Mike Holt experience. All the Best!
The class was very good. I could not have passed without it. John did a great job(10).
To all 10 rating on class - good info - good instructors. The most important thing I learned was to stay calm in the face of danger, in this case, "the test". The content was very relevant, even though I was taking the B&L for the CILB, not the ECLB, so there were more questions, more time and more books than just the CM. John could not be better. He can be to the point, keep the class on track, but keep it light to keep your attention and make you feel relaxed all before you even realized it had happened. If a person does not pass the exam(s) after taking your course, they plain just did not put forth any effort. PS: Yes I passed the B&L exam so I'm off to the big house to complete the last hurdle, with the help of Dawn. Thanks
The course was a 10! The calculations simplified things a lot for me - the content was dead on. John knows exactly how to help you pass the test.I passed my test on Thursday and Friday immediately following the class.
I rate the Florida State Contractors class a 10. John was great teacher - I now passed my test, I'm 24, and a state master! Feels really good, was worth every penny and all topics were on point with test material. My favorite part of the class was when Mr Mike Holt himself stepped in and talked - it was super inspiring and definitely motivating!
I went through Mike Holt's Florida State exam prep course in Orlando. I wanted to thank John for answering all my questions and keeping the course interesting. I wasn't sure how I would stay awake for 6 days straight of electrical lingo, but it flowed so smoothly! I took both my tests over the next 2 days following the course and passed the technical but unfortunately failed the business portion. I retook my exam exactly 21 days later, today, and passed! Thank you guys for everything, you're a great team.
The instructor and his style of teaching was awesome! Passed my first test no problem, on to the second with confidence... John A. Streb
I have passed both Florida State tests and could not have done it without you! John was very experienced and did a good job of letting us know what to expect. I really appreciate learning the importance of getting around the books Thanks so much!
I purchased Mike's products to prepare for the Florida Contractors exam. I really like Mr.Holt's ability to clearly and effectively communicate explanations of details that otherwise would be difficult to comprehend.
In a word... JOHN MILLS! The man is a gifted teacher/instructor - you guys pretty much have all bases covered.
Hi Sarina, I had to tell you guys how great the training was that I went through with John and George. I walked in the class completely confident and prepared. The test was a breeze with your training. Thank you guys for a wonderful program and I look forward to seeing you guys again for Continuing Education. Thanks again, Camell D. Williams, COO
I wanted to thank Sarina and Mr.Holt's instructors John and George; they made it possible for me to have passed both the unlimited electrical license and the business test on the first try. Without these classes I know I would have not passed. The classes were very intensive, the formulas were very helpful. I give these classes a 10. Thanks again,
The school was great. The instructor was the best - he kept us awake thru the whole class! He really knows what he teaches. Thank you for everything - I passed my test!
Sarina & All Thank you to everybody there at Mike Holt for your help, especially John Mills my instructor. I am not a good test taker so I signed up for the class before testing last Wednesday. Thursday I tested Business a 2.5 hour test; after going thru the questions 3 times, 1.5 hours in to it I felt I had done my best - and passed. Wednesday a week later I tested technical a 5.5 hour test; again after going thru the questions 3 times, 2 hours in to it I felt I had done my best - and passed. I would not have made it with out the class. Thank you,
Hi Sarina, Just wanted to respond back and let you guys know that I had an overall great experience. I took my business test on Thursday the 13th after the class was over and took my technical test yesterday the 18th and was able to pass both of them the first time! John and George were both extremely helpful from start to finish and I would not have passed the test without their guidance. I would rate the course a 10 and think the most important thing was the long days and the classroom environment that mentally prepares you for when you walk into the place you are taking your test. There were no disappointments and would recommend the course to others. Thanks Again, Steve Burch
The most important thing that I learned about in the Florida State Exam class was the test itself and what content we should spend our time reviewing. In addition, there were several items that were not covered in the books, that John walked us thru that made a big impact. John did a great job. They were long days and John kept the group interested and there was enough humor thrown in to have everyone pay close attention. John really is a good instructor and I cannot imagine a better instructor for this type of class.
I would like to take this time to thank the Mike Holt Enterprises team: Mike Holt,Sarina Snow, John Mills, Jorge. And the office. Personal overall the best - I passed the test first time; I thank GOD for you guys GOD BLESS U all.
I can’t thank you guys enough for the help in passing my state unlimited exam. John is a great instructor. I left the seminar with a lot of confidence in myself and his teaching was spot on. He simplified the test for me and hit on the areas I was weak in. The most important thing was he gave me confidence and tools to keep me calm during the test. I went in to the testing facility relaxed, knowledgeable and rested. The test was exactly as he told us it would be, EASY. I got a 99% as he said I would. I would recommend this seminar to anyone who wants to pass the State test on the first try. God bless you guys for what you do. Thanks
I just wanted to thank you guys. I easily passed both my exams. I previously used another company for my LVU exam in GA. I passed that one the first time also but I wasn't as confident when I clicked the submit button. Your class was much more thorough. I had several questions on my test that weren't covered in the class, but I knew where and how to find them. Thank You!
I just wanted to let you know that I passed my technical exam on Friday and was very pleased with the course. I was only able to study for about a week prior to the course and John took us through the material giving me the confidence to register for the test after the second day of class. He is an incredible instructor!
Sarina, I passed my business test yesterday so one more to go. The course was a 10, and I learned how to better use reference books. John Mills was awesome. Thanks, Ronald A Carter
Hi Sarina, I PASSED!! I am SO exhausted & ecstatic - THANK YOU!! I would love to tell everyone about my wonderful experience! I had taken the exam THREE times w/ a continued score of 68% all three times! If it weren’t for the course that I took with Mike Holt it would have taken me forever to pass the exam!! John & Jorge taught me how to decipher all of the information contained in the Contractors Manual, gave me AMAZING tips & equipment to find everything I needed in the time allotted at the exam. BONUS: 70% of the items taught at the course where ON the exam!!! It was a great experience! Thank you and we hope you have a lovely day!
This is to let you all know how much all of you helped me pass my test and to thank all for the help and knowledge that was given. I don't think I could have done it on my own and I will be doing more with continuing education in the future. Thanks again for everything. James T Griffin
Sarina, I passed both tests Business and EC. John is the man! I think everyone in Lake Mary heard me when I got out of the building. Also, I did a horrible Chicken Dance in the lobby. Made the proctor laugh though. Thank you both for everything. Take care.
Sarina was nice and helpful. The material covered in the class was key and instrumental in passing the exams. The class instructor was upbeat, covered the material as well as possible considering the time allotted. I have passed both of my exams and would recommend the course to others in the future.
Good Morning John/Sarina, I wanted to let you that I passed the exam! After taking the exam I now know that I couldn’t have passed it the first time without taking the Mike Holt prep course first. I thought the class was given in a very professional manor and the material pretty much covered all of the questions asked on the exam. At the end of the class I felt totally prepared for the exam. Sincerely, Peter Ringi
I rate the course a 10. John did an excellent job explaining the material and really knows his stuff. The most important thing that I learned was how to look-up and understand the Florida contractors manual. He broke it down, so I would know where to look. He really is a great asset for Mike Holt Enterprises! Thanks, | Senior Project Manager
I give the coarse a 10 out of 10! John is a great teacher. I passed both unlimited exams with a 99 percent. Thanks
Sarina I wanted to let you know that I passed both tests on the first go round which is a true testimony to the Mike Holt prep course. The course is a 10! The most valuable thing I learned was how to take the test which included highlighting, tabbing, making notes in the book and many formulas to complete the calculations. Also, if you can't find the answer don't waste a bunch of time and use "C". LOL! Content was great and very relevant. John was truly one of the best instructors I have had the opportunity to work with. He is VERY knowledgeable in what he is teaching as well as enjoys teaching and training and you can truly see it as well as hear it in his content. He is also very humorous which is needed considering this class is 6 straight days at 12+ hours a day. All and all Great job by John. I will continue to recommend Mike Holt's. Thanks again!! Kevin L Adams
Sarina, I would rate the program a 10 and the most important thing I learned is that if you apply yourself you can do whatever you put your mind to. I have to say I was not disappointed about any thing and the content was a little over board only because I was there for Limited Energy but I appreciated the extra knowledge and the math. John our instructor was upbeat and witty and I enjoyed the class a lot and would recommend it the anyone for any electrical license they need. Thank you all for your professionalism, I passed both my test with ease. Thanks Again,
Just finished the Orlando FL class for Specialty Electric sign. Got a 98 and 99 on the exams!
This course was a 10! The most important thing I learned was the confidence to know I could find all the answers quickly and correctly in the various books. There was really no wasted time on subject matter that wasn’t on the exam. John was very informative and kept us interested. These can be very boring books and the class runs for long hours, but John kept the class on-track and was very effective in transferring the knowledge over to the students. He has the gift to entertain and teach without any nonsense. Thanks again for all your assistance too, Sarina. I passed both the technical and the business exams!
I thought the class was packed full of information ...the only way to go. I have passed both my tests and plan on continuing to the next level.. Content was appropriate and John did a great job and was easy to follow. I felt very prepared for the class. Thank you.
Passed! Business part in an 1:30! The course is a 10, and the most important thing I learned is how to use the book. The content is appropriate, and John is a very good instructor. Michael Griffis
FYI, I passed the Electrical exam today and the Business exam last Friday. Mark me down as passing both exams the first time!
I took both the business law and unlimited exam last week. I passed both of them the first time and it was due to the great help that your class provided. Great instructor who really knows how to help you pass the exams. Thanks and I look forward to future classes with Mike Holt. Tim Chinchor (Junior) Estimator/Senior Project Manager
I loved the class and all materials you provided to prepare for the exam. I was very successful as I passed both tests the first time. John is very good at his job, and I would not change anything, as it was laid out. A big thumbs-up!
John did a good job.I took the technical exam on Friday after the course and passed no prob; I took the business exam Tuesday after the course and passed no prob. Thanks for all the help.
Hello Sarina, I PASSED!!!!!! The course is a 10! The most important thing I learned was how to use code book. John is one of a kind! Very informative and extremely intelligent. Thanks
Sarina, I just wanted to write a sincere thank you letter. The class helped me tremendously and the teacher was wonderful - I could not ask for a better instructor. Thank you for all of your help! Best Regards,
John, I wanted to thank you for your efforts in the March Unlimited Class in Orlando. I left the class feeling 100% prepared for the exams. I passed both and will be surprised if I missed more than one on each exam. I felt the exams were easy after you preparation. You made the classes informative as well as entertaining and kept my interest the whole time. Thanks again,
I definitely rate this course a 10. I would not have passed the technical without it. The most important thing I learned during this course is how to break down the books and take the test. John gave us many pointers on how to take this type of test. I was not disappointed in any way and would strongly recommend this course to anyone taking the EC test. The content was both appropriate and relevant to the tests. Keeping in mind that you should have already gone through the work books and understand code, this course gave me the valuable extra information to pass the tests. I answered approximately 50 test questions without opening the books. John is a tireless instructor that is passionate about teaching his students. I was never bored during the long hours of this course. It is a truly talented teacher that can keep that many students on task for that long a period of time. Thank you,
Thanks Sarina, I PASSED both sections of my EC test..John Mills and your class were an amazing help!!!!! See you at the continuing ed classes :) Steve Olaughlin
Most important thing I learned was look up the answers; job knowledge is not necessarily the right answer. (the state exam proved this true) John is great! He is real and calls it the way he sees it. I enjoyed his presentation. I finished the course on Wednesday afternoon and sat for the Technical part of the exam on Friday. I used John's technique for taking the exam, had no stress taking it and without a doubt if I had not taken this prep course I don't think I would have passed the exam. John had me very well prepared. Warm Regards, s
I passed! Thank you Sarina and John for all your assistance. I passed the business portion on Thursday, and the technical portion on Friday. Now I can forget everything I learned about running a business for the exam and get back to running a business!! Kevin H
Dear Sarina: It was last August when we first talked. I was trying to get my husband registered in one of your trainings; well now he is an electrical contractor. I could not help sharing what we are feeling with you. When we started we were so lost and your staff guided us to obtain this much-wanted license. The instructors were always trying to make sure he was following them. George Cancio assisted him in Spanish and was very helpful and patient. We are really grateful for hearing about you, and the course was really worthy. Thanks again, Sincererly,
I rate this course a 10. The most important thing I learned was how to find the information in our books in a timely manner. The class was geared for taking the test and it stayed within that application very well. I was not disappointed in any way - the content was spot on. The class was well directed and the instructor was very good at keeping everyone focused on what they needed to do to take the exam. John is class act - he keeps the material exciting and keeps everyone on topic and focused.
I was pleased with every aspect of the transaction. Customer Service was polite and and very helpful. I can't think of anything that your organization could have done better than how it was completed. Your company is a rare find indeed. I cannot think of one improvement that you need to make. What a wonderful company to do business with. The books are very well written and the class was excellent,
Last week was amazing. I don't even know where to start complimenting you, John and the rest of the Mike Holt staff, including Mike himself who was gracious enough to take time from his busy schedule to drop by and give us some words of wisdom and encouragement. I guess the best compliment I can give you is that I came back Wednesday night, took my business exam yesterday, and passed. Today I take my technical and I am confident about the results I will achieve. What else can I say about John? If I had any plans to bear children, I would name my first born after him. His material and information was not only relevant but presented in such a manner that made it funny and exciting to learn. After so many years of being out of school, I was so scared to take this leap of faith, yet with your guidance and encouragement, and John's incredible knowledge and gift for teaching, I am looking forward to continuing my education even further. Thank you again for all your support and encouragement and have yourself a Blessed holiday season as well as a new year chock full of all of your heart's desires.
Sarina, This class was the best thing I could do to prepare for the exam. I have taken both test and passed. Thanks to you and the whole team there. On the ratings #1-10, #2- How to find info in the books. Mainly the CM book, #3- John only took his shirt off twice. #4-content was excellent #5- John and George were great Thank you again and hope you have a great Holiday
Sarina, I would rate the course a 15! I think the most important thing I have learned is that I could accomplish anything if I put my mind to it. I haven't had to study this hard in 30 years and John made it seam so easy to do. You guys are lucky to have such a great instructor like John!!! He really made the class time fly by. Also he really knows his stuff. I want to thank you, John, George and Mike of course. Thanks for everything you guys did to help me and for helping other future Electricians. Thanks to people like you, new electricians will be better prepared to perform their jobs. You guys rock. Thanks once again.
Well I took John Mills class in June and passed both tests the first time out of the box and finally got my license number!!! Thank you once again for a great class and great preparation. Even though I took my tests 3 weeks after the class the proper tabbing of the books and knowing where to find answers was the key!! I would be glad to offer a reference for you and the class!!! Thank you again John the class helped me a lot - that and preparing for NICET same theory. Thanks guy!!!!!!
The class was easily a 10. The most important thing learned was not to be afraid of the test, and this is the one thing that has had me stressed out. Without a doubt, after taking the course I feel more confident that I will do well on the exams. All I can say about John is that I wish I had an instructor like him when I was in electronics school. He is very good at what he does. PS Thank you, Sarina for all your patience. \ Technician TEM Systems, Inc. Orlando
The class was a 10. The best thing was to learn which book to refer to given a particular question. John was great. Very knowledgeable and he kept your attention during the long class hours by interjecting jokes quite often. He basically didn't waste any time, but told you EXACTLY what you needed to know. Nothing more, nothing less. Great Job! Thanks, PS. By the way Sarina, I passed both exams! :-) Thank you for your help as well.
Hi Sarina- I would rate the course a 10. I think John does a great job of preparing you for the test The most important things I learned last week in the class were concerning the business items. Even though I am involved with the "business" every day there are things covered in your class that we don't see much. John also did a good job of keeping you confident that you WILL pass this test No disappointments-content was great-probably covered 90% of the material I saw on my test I thought the class was very good and I would recommend it to all who are preparing to take the test I passed both tests last week Thank you, Godfrey Electric, Inc.
I would rate the course a 10. The most important thing we learned is not to worry about the exam - to trust what we learned and apply it. The weeks I spent going over the workbooks was a little overwhelming but John made it simple and put me at ease. John did a great job. In the few days we had with him, he explained everything so that we could remember the material and apply it to the exam. He was a great teacher. He blended instruction with the right amount of story telling and humor to keep me at ease. He was very good at recognizing "mind block" and changing gears. His knowledge of the material was astounding and assured me that if I follow his instruction, I will have no problem passing the exam. This program was worth every penny.
Sarina is by far the best part of the program. She walks you through all the difficult steps in a calm, reassuring way. She always returns phone calls and answers all my questions no matter how silly they may seem. I had no idea what I was in for or what test I could qualify to test for. After speaking with Sarina for about ten minutes I dared to dream and believe bigger than I ever did before. She was right, after working in this industry for over twenty-eight years, I needed to go for all the whole enchilada. I am now studying harder than I ever did as an apprentice because I feel as if Mike, Sarina and all the rest of the wonderful teachers are giving me the best possible chance of passing my exam on the first try..
Sarina, I would like to inform you I passed both the business and technical tests for my state license. Passed the first time out on 6/22 and 6/23 with a 99% on both (ask John about the 99%). The class I took with John Mills was very good and listening to him during the marathon sessions and the ideas I had on taking the test all worked out well! John is a VERY GOOD instructor and I would recommend him and Mike Holt to any one looking to take the test for a state license. Again thank you all for a great experience and a very successful testing process. Advantage Integration Technology
This course is a 10! It teaches how to navigate through the text books to find the answers. The content was relevant and appropriate. John is a wonderful teacher. It is not easy to teach for long hours like he does and be able to keep the audience engaged and entertained while still being able to get the point across. He is one of the best instructors I have ever had.
John, I would like to thank you again for all your help. I took the technical test today and passed it! Javier A. Lugo Interseckt Corporation
I passed YYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEHHHHHHAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!! You guys are the best THANK YOU. The course content was appropriate, relevant and very helpful JOHN IS THE MAN Vice President A Custom Electric LLC
I would give the State Class a 10 based on the knowledge of the instructor. The most important thing I learned was how to navigate the manuals and what to look for on the test. The content approach was quite good and it was well worth the time to attend. John is a very knowledgeable man!!! A good instructor who knows when to back off a little to help us to regroup our minds and relax some and then proceed. He is very, very knowledgeable in the subject and is a credit to the Mike Holt Company. I did enjoy my time in class even though by the end of each day I was exhausted and ready to rest. Again the way the class is organized is excellent, and is very informative. You don't know that at first and the first day did get frustrating but after it was apparent why John did things the way he did.
The course content was VERY appropriate and relevant. John was to the point and very lively he kept me interested for the entire class. He has plenty of quick tips that simplified the process. There was no doubt in my mind that I passed each section as I turned them in. John limits irrelevant comments and sticks to the course. In my opinion he did a outstanding job. Noble
The most important thing I learned this week is how to take the exam, and what not to get caught up in; how to use the reference books. I thought John was a very good instructor, he kept me motivated as well as pumped up with little jokes and discussion to break up the actual learning process. John you Da Man Thank You
You have an Entire Team of great professionals. In every aspect of the operation a well knowledgeable person is there to help you.
I enjoyed the classes and the instructor's insights - great effort in knowing all that encompasses the topic. I'm excited about learning to teach Mike Holt's programs in the future. Whenever I think of electrical information, I will always look Mike Holt's way.
The content of this class was very appropriate and relevant - I learned how to navigate the books along with PEIR. John and George were Perfect!!! Definitely an asset to your organization. Very friendly, informative, entertaining and knowledgeable. It was also a pleasant surprise to have Mike Holt stop by. What a guy! I passed the business back in Dec. and I took the Technical today for the unlimited and PASSED! 99%. Thanks John! And Sarina, thanks for all of your help!!!! You guys are a Great team!!!! Thanks -
John showed ways to simplify important formulas and equations, and how to prepare and take a test properly. John is probably one of the best instructors I have ever had in my 30 year career!!! John was energetic, funny, and kept your attention and focus on the learning the material. He always took the time to explain anything you didn’t quite understand. And that was difficult given the amount of material we have to absorb over 6 days of classes. He really knows his stuff!! I have an electronics background and he showed me some shortcuts with calculations and formulas that made it so easy. Unbelievable!! By the way, I just wanted to let you know that I got a 99% on my exam! Thank you Sarina for your prodding to get me in the class room!! Thank you John for being a great instructor and keeping attitudes positive!!!
The course I took, Limited Energy, far surpassed what I expected it to be. I rate this course a 10. This rating is, for the most part, due to the way the topics were covered. I learned a lot and will be back when I decide to take the UNLIMITED test. I have taken other classes in the past covering various topics. John was by far the most instructive, patient and comical instructor I have had the pleasure of dealing with. He kept the class interesting. I was worried about falling asleep with the amount of time that we were in session, not with John as the instructor. There were things that didn't "sink in" the first time and he took the time to go over them again in a different manner and what do you know, it worked. His life experiences made a lot of the material easier to comprehend and understand.
The most important thing I learned during the week was to focus on the test taking skills (don't try to lean in the exam). The the content of the class was appropriate and relevant? John and George are awesome. Durrani Guy
Mr. Holt, I was put into a situation where I needed to get a Florida Alarm 1 license. I bought your courses, studied your books, DVDs and attended your review class. It was all overwhelming and I knew I was in over my head. The most motivating thing in the process was your 20 minute unscheduled visit to our class. Mike, you said we would pass the test. It may not be the first time or the second, but you said we'd pass the test. That inspired me to keep going on. I took the tests Mike, both of them in Florida and I did not pass them. God passed them for me. In November the State of Florida issued me a Florida Alarm 1 License. Thank you for the tools and motivation. I've got a long way to go, but I'm on my way.
The content was perfect. John is very entertaining, informative, and just perfect for the job! I passed today's technical exam. D. Varga
This was the most informative interactive preparation for an exam I have EVER attended. I will recommend it to everyone preparing for the Florida exams. The Mike Holt products are as usual first class.
I would like to thank everyone there that has help me get through the testing for limited energy for the state of Florida. All the knowledge that you passed on to me was remarkable. I will say that it was the longest 6 days of my life then, but now it seems that it took no time at all. For anyone that might be hesitant....don’t - it will be the best thing that you could do in order to get ready for your exam. If it had not been for you guys I do not think that I could have done any of it.
Professional, quick and accurate response. I have dealt with Mike Holt Enterprises on numerous occasions, and frequently use the web site for my employees, and my personal training. The on-line sample tests are very good, and the study material is the best I've found. I've tried other providers, and discovered that Mike Holt's products are superior. I keep the website in my favorites to constantly verify each states requirements, and links. I also use Mike's code questions for my weekly training for my employees, which they truly appreciate. Great job, keep it up.
I completed the six day cram course on Wednesday September 16, 2009 and I took the Technical exam on Thursday the 17th. Its with a heart filled with gratitude that I am informing you that I've passed the test. I've encouraged an associate of mine to purchase the complete package with DVD's and cram session. Thanks again for all your help and flexibility with getting into the class. Before Mike Holt's prep I scored a 68% - with the prep class I blew it out of the water! Jesus A. Fonte
John was a good teacher kept things lively & upbeat so as to avoid becoming bored & losing focus. As I have been an electrician some 21 years now & have operated a business in Florida for going on five years I am quite familiar with the trade as you can imagine. This course focused on passing the test which is not necessarily the same as being a good electrical contractor. Even with my experience I was able to pickup some additional knowledge which I probably would have either had to find by trial & error. Overall a very informative class.
I would like to thank John and George for there dedication and commitment to all the students who attended the September 09 unlimited course. This course was top notch and well executed. John really knows how to break questions down into there simplest form. I took both business and technical exams and scored a 99% on the first try. WOW!!! I couldn't believe how confident I was going into and during the exam. I finished both business and technical exams with 1 hr remaining to review each. For future students I would recommend taking the tests immediately after the course and also taking the business and law exam first. Thanks Again,
Content was excellent. I would not have passed without this class. John was EXCELLENT. Probably the best instructor I've ever had. Extremely knowledgeable, but also funny and interacted well with the class. George was also great - they made a good team. Overall - excellent class, great instructor, well worth the time & money.
Sarina, We passed the exams. The instructors John and George are brilliant. Your program really does work. Thank you!
Sarina, I am pretty sure I received 100% on both sections of my state exam. I was pretty confident taking the exam. Thank you,
Sarina, I thought that the class was very well put together. John did a great job of showing us all of the material that was on the test. By the way John, I got a 99 on both the business and technical. Thanks for all of your help. Brian M.
Sarina, The class was just as I expected - after being through it three years ago I knew it would be first rate. John and George did an excellent job. They kept us awake and interested! I can't say enough about John and his abilities to get the message across. I took the business test today and got a 99%. I also got a 99% on the tech portion! THAT SAYS IT ALL !!!!
SARINA, I WOULD GIVE THE CLASS A 10! JOHN WAS GREAT AND VERY MOTIVATIONAL. GEORGE WAS ALSO A TREMENDOUS HELP! THANK YOU, MADELINE ROGERS
Sarina, I just passed the technical unlimited today; I passed the Business yesterday. Both were my first attempts at the state test. I did everything you and Mike recommend as far as study time, and with that and the class I was more than prepared to pass the tests. Thank you to John, George, Mike, and you for all your help!
What I was pleased with the most was talking with Sarina - she is great Stay the course...
Well Sarina first things first i passed my exams 1st time. So I did enjoy the class and found it very helpful towards my success. As far as John Mills goes he's a great guy, and great teacher. I know John from night school and he's very helpful and very educated. So I want to thank you and Mike Holt for everything and I will be happy to refer people to your course.
Hello Sarina, 1. I rate this class a 10++++++++ 2. The most important thing I learned was to stay calm and focused 3. I was not disappointed by the course in any way 4. Approximately 99% of the questions I got on my test were covered in class or I learned how to look up the information 5. John Mills is hands down the best instructor I have had the opportunity to learn from. He broke down the information where even a 3rd grader could understand it. He kept us all focused and made the class enjoyable 6. Yes, you may use my comments in any way, shape or form you deem necessary to promote this outstanding course And by the way, I passed both exams. This course helped me realize a goal I had set for myself a long time ago. Best regards, President Dolphin Electric, Inc
The class was great I rate it a #10 John was a great instructor, I learned a lot in a short time. Best Regards, Vice President Flash Electric of Central FL, Inc.
I will rate the class by this - I passed the Technical portion of the State Exam today. I just want to say thanks to all the staff, as all of you have been very supportive and helpful from day one.
John was very helpful in the areas that I was not sure about. All my issues that I had with the test were taken away after the class was over. Until this class I had a lot of doubts about taken the test again but now I don't.
Hi Sarina, The Orlando State Class was great; John is an excellent instructor and keeps things light hearted and fun. The class was very educational on many levels. Since I first spoke with you until now, it has been a great experience and I would like to extend my thanks to all of you in your continued support.
Thank you very much and for all your help. John was excellent! This was well organized and presented.
I would definitely recommend this course to anyone taking the exam. The information was about everything we needed to be aware of. John, kept the class moving and broke the tension to keep everyone focused. Austen electric Inc. V.P.
I would rate this course a 10. John kept the class fun. Even though I have not taken the test yet, it did wonders for my confidence level. There are a lot of good tips of how to take a test without all the stress that goes with it. Thanks again, onzalez Estimator
I was very impressed by this class, I have no doubt in my mind that I can pass this test. Everything was really well put together, John did an excellent job covering the material, and kept us relaxed. The Ramada was well suited for the purpose. I had all the right books thanks to Sarina, who did a great job preparing me for what was to come. Thanks, for all your help
Good morning Sarina. Thanks to all the staff at Mike Holt for the excellence in which the Exam Prep Class was handled. Starting with John and Jorge, I can not say enough. It was as he stated from the very beginning. All we need to do is listen to him and follow his instructions and advice and we'll pass the test. I honestly believe that I would not have passed the test with as much ease, let alone at all, if it were not for that week I spent in Kissimmee cramming. I do not believe that I wouldn't have passed the test eventually, but the course provided something that is pretty difficult for any of us to get at home and that's uninterrupted study and concentration. I have done my share of studying at home for other exams as well as continuing education courses. Mike has been my mentor since I started with you guys back in 1990. But there is no way I would have reached the level of focus and preparation had I attempted to study on borrowed time at home or work. I will say this; any person even contemplating taking the state exam will be doing them selves a tremendous injustice if they do not take this course. I strongly believe you simply can not be better prepared any other way. Not just for the exam itself, but with all the help and advice we received along the way. John and Jorge really wanted us to pass that test and they couldn't have given any more of them selves to show it. Thanks to John and Jorge and all of you at Mike Holt for the years of help and encouragement you have given me and countless others. You are truly my second family. Thank you and God Bless you. He has certainly Blessed me and my family. Luis Garcell
I would never have been as mentally ready for the challenge, had I not spent the time in your class the prior week. I passed the first time and that was the goal of taking the class and home study program. Your instructor was excellent and brought some very diffucult material down to the simplest of terms with PEIR and other strategeis. Jim Hunniford
Hi Sarina, I just wanted to follow up with you to let you know that my husband Chad Ward who attended the Electrical Class in Orlando earlier this month before the exam and he PASSED his ES Sign Specialty test. We just want to say THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! He took a course at another school last year and my husband was so frustrated that they could not teach him how to do the calculation problems and that was the only part of the exam he had issues with. He took their class 3 times in 2007 before each of the Electrical exams and could not pass the test. He took the Mike Holt class ONCE in 2008 and passed. GREAT JOB! Andrea Ward Sign FX, Inc.
John is one of the best instructors I have ever encountered and I have been to allot of courses over my 22 years of electrical training. He is wonderfully entertaining as well as extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the course not to mention him and George have a good relationship with each other that only added to the experience. In the category of money well spent John and the course far exceeded my expectations. Thank You for all you have done for me Sarina. You can bet I will use Mike Holt for all my companies future needs in the education department as well as personal. Joe Verrechio Electric Solutions of NE FL
The Sarina / John / George / Mike Holt experience has definitely been very positive. Thanks to all very much for your dedication to the learning process and the Electrical industry. John understands what he is teaching, and very professional in his delivery. Lloyd Welborn / ARS electrical, Charleston S.C.
I have taken the exam 4 times and I feel like this time I did very well compared to previous attempts. I am a specialty contractor and Mike Holt teaches to each contractor as the test is given for that category. JOHN IS AN INCREDIBLE TEACHER! He taught me more in the two hours of calculations than the other school could ever teach me. I took the test 3 times and never was able to figure calculations. Also John taught us how to use the NEC code book (not just how to highlight the book). On the 1 to 10 scale you would rate about a 15. I honestly don't know how you could change your program for the better. I actually feel like I passed this time! and that is the only thing that really matters most. Also your continuing education online is awesome too! Chad Ward
Sarina, Hope all is well. Just wanted to touch base with you and let you know that I passed the March 4th exam finally! The seminar was so helpful that without it, one does not stand a chance. of course the student is only as good as the teacher and John Mills is great. I also took his night classes as Miami Springs senior and I must say he grilled me til I got it. If there was ever a problem or question, John knew it or followed it through. he has encouraged me to continue in my studies as I have already set my sights on other licenses. Anyway, great work you are doing and I will be in touch regarding some products I need. Sincerely, Armando Alvarez
Good afternoon, Could you please tell me what John Mills e-mail address is? I just found out that I passed my electrical exam ! This was my 4th time taking it but my first time taking your class. I really wanted to thank him, his teaching style was very easy to take in, I do not think that with out his and your help I would have ever passed this exam.THANK YOU! Michael Boland Residential Exam
Sarina, I am on the last day of the prep course for my Unlimited License, and take the technical portion tomorrow. I want you to klnow that this course has been the best course I have taken in many years. John and George go above and beyond what I have expected. I will recommend this to everyone that is thinking of taking any exam, especially the Unlimited EC. I also want to thank you for your dedication to me throughout this process. Everyone at Mike Holt can be proud of what they do for the electrical industry. All the best to you, John, George, and the rest of the staff @ Mike Holt Ent. Sincerely, Mike Carignan
John was excellent. He kept my attention and there were very few times (if any) he deviated from his instruction. He is an asset to Mile Holt. All in all, I would recommend Mike Holt's course to any experienced person that needs to review and refresh. I have been in this industry for 30 years, graduated the JATC, licensed in Maryland, business owner and I STILL am LEARNING........THANK YOU !!!!! Ted Cook West Coast Lighting of SW Florida
Sarina, I could not have passed without the help of Mike Holt Enterprises. A sincere thank you to everyone. Jon Chatelain Jon C. Chatelain Jr. Operations/Project Manager Service Communications Inc.
Attention Sarina I wanted to thank your institution and wonderful staff especially to George and John, for the support given during my classes. I was involved in the specialty signs and I have received news from the state exam and I pass. Thank you very much for everything and I will shortly will get involve into getting the unlimited license. It will be obviously with your school, no doubts about that. Hope you can show this thankful note to everyone that still want to go another school. Sincerely Ariel Pedrosa Advanced Multi Sign
Sarina is one of the most dedicated and fun people to deal with. Kudos for her. John and George did a great job. I admire George for his accomplishments. What can I say about John. He reminds me of a young me. If you listen carefully you will determine that John loves what he is doing, and is very proud of his accomplishments. His assion for electrical is obvious and he reminded me of why I am in the business. Harry Krapil
Hello Sarina. If you recall I called you on Friday after the low voltage test to tell you how hard it was. (At least I think it was) I think taking that test had me much more "experienced" for the next one because when I took the business test on Saturday it was pretty easy. I passed that one with no problem. Pass my thanks on to John for all his help. Gregg Dixon
Many thanks to John Mills and Jorge Cancio. The EC prep class was great, it would be hard to improve on. Thanks! Mike Swackhammer
Sarina, Pass along my thanks to Mike, John and George. I just got the results of my Fl Unlimited Contractors Technical test. I got a 91 on the technical and I only know I got a 75 or better on the business portion. I would not have passed either of these tests without using your home study materials and attending your 6 day seminar. John was informative and entertaining and managed to keep our attention focused during the entire 6 days. I will reccommend your curriculum to every one I want as a competitor. Thanks again to all for all your help. Marty Rogers

John, Just thought you would like to know that I passed both parts of my test. Once again I would like to thank you and George for all your help, without the class and your guidance I don't think I could have passed. Thank you again Best Wishes Patrick Fallon
Mike, Let me say firstly I passed the unlimited exam first time. I would not been able to do so unless I attended your course last March. I scored 83% and incidentally that was the approximate level I was scoring during the trial exams. Your course is outstanding. It is one of the best thousand dollars I have ever spent. John Mills did an outstanding and comprehensive job. Also I have had the good fortune to interact with your organization on several occasions and just today I talked to Sarina Snow who suggested I send you this email. In my humble opinion you have created a world-class, people focused organization of high quality that is very customer centric. I'm sure you're getting the satisfaction of a job well done. If at any time you need any recommendations I would be more than happy to help. Again many thanks. Liam Collins
Hi Sarina! I don't know if you would remember speaking to me or not but earlier this year I had ordered the study materials for the EC exam in March for my husband, Dan. You strongly suggested he attend a seminar because the pass rate for self study wasn't as high. I passed that information onto my husband but stubborn as he is, he was bound to try to pass the exam without the seminar. I am proud to say that after many late nights and tired mornings, my husband was successful in passing the EC exam in March. He really found the study materials extremely helpful and keeps them in the office for reference. Thank you so much for your assistance in obtaining the materials and for your presence @ Mike Holt's office. My father-in-law, Mike, just finished a seminar in Orlando last weekend and they said they met you and how nice you were. Just thought I'd let you know about my husband's success story. Thanks again, Jen Richmond
I just received my official notice from the state that I passed the limited energy exam. This would not have been possible without your efforts and the help from everyone at Mike Holt's company. Thank you for everything and I look forward to seeing you again at continuing education classes. Carl Becker
John, Just found out that I passed the exam! I made a 99.8! Can''t understand what I could"ve missed. Seriously that was one of the toughest state exams yet. Just wanted to let you know how much I apprecitate your insights and instruction. Being an instructor myself I know how difficult a seminar of that length is. Again thanks a million. Wouldn't have done it without the seminar. Britt Crist
Sarina, Thanks for the great and rewarding experience with the Florida unlimited electrical class. I have received the results back on both of my test and have passed on first try. I would not have been able to do so well with out the review and test talking techniques that were taught by an exceptional staff. Thanks again. Thanks, Jeffrey Smyth Bayside Inspection Service www.baysideinspection.com
Sarina, Just wanted to mail you to say thank you for steering me in the right direction for my state certified test. I have taken and passed the test and did it on the first try. The results were on the states web site today. No question that you deserve a big hug and a kiss for being such a wonderful lady. Be sure to tell John and George all the good news. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely, Robert Thompson
Sarina, I would like to thank John and George for all the help they gave me in passing my unlimited test. Without the class I would not have passed. I took the test in March and failed without the class. Again thanks to the whole Mike Holt Team. Michael C. Sidwell PMH Group Inc
Hi Sarina, the class was great, instructors were also. I passed the business and law exam, still waiting on results from technical part. Al Terranova
Sarina: Just wanted to let you know that John and George, your instructors for HELL week, were fantastic. John made what could have been an excrutiating week bearable and informative and always kept the classes interesting and funny. They are both very knowledgeable and I enjoyed being in their company for the week. I have passed the business portion of the exam and am still awaiting the results from the technical test. Whatever I scored I believe their help was tantamount to being able to take the test with some degree of confidence. Being a licensed electrical contractor in NJ for 20 years, I forgot, how much I forgot in respect to the code and calculations. Whatever the outcome of the technical test I was totally satisfied with the instruction and believe the money was well spent if you are serious about attaining a state license. I will advise you on the outcome of my test on receipt of notification from the state. Thank you for all your help. Pat Ruccio A.L.M. Electric Co., Inc.
Sarina, Please you all have done a great job. Every time a problem arose it was handled in a professional manner. Thanks to you and John and George for quite an experience, and for the effort you put forth to help us pass the test. Paul Gifford
This email is to thank you Sarina, John, George and all the staff at Mike Holt Enterprises for all the help in taking my electrical contractor test. My name is Wilson Martinez and I passed both tests in only one try thanks to you. Please make sure you tell John and George that Martinez passed the test and that I say to all of you: "A MILLION THANKS, YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST" P.S.: MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR. Wilson Martinez
The class was great. I wish I could have passed it on the first go around, but I guess I was marking the wrong numbers. I got a 86 this time. But this time I went back and double checked my answers to the answer sheet......... Thanks for all the help. Roberta Plamondon, Res electrical
Hi Sarina, I can't thank you enough for everything you have done to help me pass my test. God bless you. Al Terranova
Hi Sarina, Just wanted to thank you for shipping out your product so quickly. I got off the phone with you @ 3:45 PM on 1-4-06 and the package was on my doorstep @ 6:00 PM on the 5th. That's fast. If this is any indication of how the rest of the organization is run, I can't wait for the review classes. Thanks again, Bob Moyer
Sarina, Thought you would be interested to know i passed my exam. thanks for all your help. When you see john my instructor please pass on my gratitude. Bob Dring
Dear Mike, I am writing this letter to say "Thanks". I have been using your products since 2000, when I purchased your complete library. It is now 2006 and I hold approximately 10 Masters Licenses in NY and the outlying areas, including Connecticut State, and now most likely Florida State Certified Unlimited Electrical. I sat for the exam yesterday after completing your 6-day prep course with John and George. The class and the instructors were great, and even though I don't officially know if I passed, I think I "KILLED" that exam. I am taking Rockland County (the last county in NY that I don't have) next Friday and New Jersey in July. Needless to say I have complete confidence for these upcoming exams. I couldn't have done it without your help. Thanks again for everything, Rob Robert Biscardi Sun Electric Works, Inc.
I'm writing to tell you what great products and a great team you have. When I took Florida this month, I felt good when I walked out of the test center, but you are always on pins and needles until you get your results. I just found out today that I passed, thanks to my hard work and your great products and staff. I took the prep class with John and George and it was a tremendous help. John is without a doubt the most unique and dynamic Code instructor that I have ever had. His delivery and "in your face" attitude was both entertaining and informative and I'm sure that I retained most, if not all, that he said. George's help with the Florida Contractors Manual and his vast experience and knowledge was a great help as well. Thanks also to Sarina for her help in sending me tapes and books in quick fashion and her references to help me complete the application process. Lastly, but certainly not least, thanks to you, Mike, for all you do to further education in our trade. God bless you and yours. Brad Darnel
Sarina, just wanted to say thanks ( I passed my EF ). I wanted to pass along some information to Mike. The training, regardless of how painful it is, I attended in Kissimmee prior to my test was the best thing I could have done. John M and George really brought a new level of teaching to the game. They keep valuable information coming at you the entire week, but they way it is delivered (teaching methods) really locks it into your memory, which allows you to be able to answer about half of the questions on the test with out having to cruise through 5 different books. I just wanted you guys to know what a good job they did, and that I would recommend your classes to anyone attempting to pass a state exam. Thanks again Justin Peterson Quality Communications Fire and Security Fort Myers Branch Manager
John/George, This is Amiee from your March 1-6 class...I wanted to let you know that I passed! I got a 99 on the exam ;) The time flew by and I had to guess on about 12 questions but C was the favorite answer! I think if people had more time, then more of them would pass. I took the Business Exam and passed that as well, I guess I am now certifiable! Sorry I won't see you in the next class but at least you know I passed! Amiee Rukes
Hi Sarina - I am just getting home after a very long day, but did not want to go to bed without telling you how much I appreciate all the time you gave me in your office today. How grateful am I that I stopped by to pick up books rather than have them mailed? Very!!! I felt like I had won the lottery when you began giving me resources and telling me stories. I can not thank you enough for all you did today! Really, I just felt like I was in the office of an "Angel". George and I will talk again in the morning and then I will contact Marie. I will let you know how it all turns out. You guys ROCK at Mike Holt! Shannon Frost Frost & Company, Inc.
I thought the test was a very difficult one. I could not have done it without you guys !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much. Bob Mazzarella
Sarina: Hi, this is Luis Ruiz one of the many students you helped pass a master test. Thank You, Very Much for every effort to help me find the information and books that I needed to successfully pass the master electrical test. Luis Ruiz
Sarina, I would like to thank you for your guidance and valuable information that you have shared with me on passing the Florida EC exam on my first attempt.When I first started this endeavor I thought "how hard could this be" well lets just say I was surprised.Your advise is something that I will always remember,when I called about two months before the exam the first thing you said was o'boy we do not have much time,at that point the panic started.However you took control and laid out a plan that worked.I purchased the in home study guide and videos than went to work just as you said.Also I can not say enough about the seminar, I owe allot to John he kept things going and interesting. His teaching and understanding of what we were going thru is amazing.I have taken several instructional coarse throughout the years but not one did I walk away with as much confidence as I did after that final day with John,so please pass along my gratitude to him. In closing I truly appreciate all the help and support I have received from all of you. If there is anything I can do for you please let me know. Ray Burns
Received letter today from DPBR passed the July 6 Exam with 82 or as John Mills says a "99". It took me from Nov. to this July to become familiar with all the reference books and how to use them. I know I was unrealistic in believing that the "crash" course would allow me to bypass this requirement. Why? Because at my age 73, but 74 on Oct. 6, 2006 , I don't have a lot of time left to waste studying. Actually, if I can raise some funds I intend to rebuild my Electric Vehicle (now rusted out) and maybe in three years build as many as 200 per year. Bill McGill
SARINA !!!! SHE IS THE BEST. YOU HAVE EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. Dear Mike - I stopped by your office to pick up a Home Study Book Progaram. That was all i wanted ... just pick up my books and leave. I am a busy contractor and don't like to wait around. Freddy insisted I speak with Sarina who had an appointment in her office. So i waited and waited and waited. And boy am i glad that I waited! Sarina took me in her office and started asking me questions about why i was wanted to take the exam and if i had questions or needed help. I was able to tell her i had NO IDEA what i was doing. She answered my questions, helped me and suggested excellent additional resources. I am a woman with management experience, not your typical work in the field and work your way up under "qualified" companies contractor. I needed Divine direction to get my application through and I knew it. I could have cried I was so overwhelmed that this Woman spent time with me, shared her knowledge and gave me such excellent resources. For 2 LONG YEARS I tried to figure out how I would qualify to take the exam and then how i would pass it. Ironically, the morning before meeting Sarina, I prayed. I knew i needed miracles if i was going to meet this challenge. WOW I did not expect them in the form of Freddy and Sarina. Sarina's kindness, knowledge and generousity left me speechless. I love sharing this story of hope and how God shows up in the most unexpected places. He is always there to help us - when we ask of him. Thank you for being such a great support to our Industry. A very satisfied client! frostandcompany.com
Hello John, I wanted to thank you for the energy and attention to detail that you commanded in our unlimited electrical exam preparation last month. When I finished the exam I wasn't sure I had passed, but knew that if I hadn't, that I would after November's class. I'm happy to report that I passed both portions and will submit my certified application soon. If you remember, I hadn't even purchased the text books until Friday afternoon. Without your plan, I wouldn't have passed either portion. It would be safe to say that I might've gotten a 0% or 15% on the Business and Law as I hadn't seen any of it before our course. You deserve much credit and I want you to know that I hope Mike takes good care of you. I'm a very satisfied customer and the time and money were the best investments I've made in my company. It was a great week. I hope to try the G. C. exam that you reccomended soon. Mike is the guru, and you're a great drill instructor. Don't change a thing! Thanks sincerely Patrick Hosey Patrick's Electric Company Fort Myers, FL
Sarina: Thanks again for everything. It took some time but after speaking to ten different people the state has finally fixed their mistake. My application was approved in June yet some how I was removed from the list. No one in the state seems to understand how it happened. I have my thoughts. Any way, they finally contacted me yesterday and not only mailed the admission slip, they faxed me copy in case anything should go wrong. Again, thank you so much for your help and supplying me the proper number and person to call to get this issue straightened out. My application to the ADA was also accepted and I am getting 2.5 more hours and a private room to take the test. What a deal. Guess being handicapped has its privileges. You have been a great help and I thank you again for being more than just a business. You definitely have proved that your companies objective is to fully assist the applicants and not just fill a class. Gary Dubnicek President Blue Chip USA Inc.
Sarina, Just wanted to let you know that I passed. Just found out today!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you very much for everything you and the entire team did for me. Thanks again Kevin Kilbourne Vice-president James W. Knight Electric, Inc.
I would like to begin with saying, DUDE, Thanks for selling me the watch. (I even looked at it during the test). As you may know by now I did pass. (I think I scored a 99). I would like to thank both of you for your help. I did learn a lot in the class and had a good time doing it. Your teaching technique along with George’s support made the difference. The preparation and information you shared was great. Thanks again Joe Kelly Service Manager Edd Helms Group, Inc.
Sarina, I would like to let you know that the two instructors, John and George were more than teachers they were perfect banks of knowledge. They were two of the best professors I’ve had in all the years of schooling I’ve had, which I’ve had plenty. Thank you for having them on your team, I will recommend your course with them to all I meet that are in need. Sincerely, Cyrus Brush CEO Coast Guard Security LLC.
Mike, I read this article and just had to drop a note. If you think the books are great, try the exam prep course with John as well. I took the course last fall after a few months of basic study and felt well prepared for the exam. When I actually took the test, I was amazed. It was almost like John had read the test and prepared the class just for that test. I completed both sections of the State EC long before the required time limit and had plenty of time to proof my answers prior to submitting my sheets. When the results came in a 91% was my reward. I can't says thanks enough for all of the hard, professional work that goes into your material. Tell John thanks and feel free to use this letter how you like. Thanks a Million, Daniel B House
Hi Sarina, The state's website says I passed the exam for Alarm One at the 08 July '03 sitting, an event that took place with powerful help from you, all of your coworkers and Mike and also a half-dozen people in Tallahassee. The DBPR applications process went bad, real bad and I engaged 2 of 3 branches of government and was considering the possibility of the 3rd, my phone/Email list suddenly became most,uh, efficient. My test bore almost no resemblance to the highlighting and practice exams, but the course, your help, encouragement and confidence, my instructors and Mike, as individuals exceeded the sum of the the parts. The exam was "like three rounds with a middleweight". It appears coaching played the major part of things and the first Email among a dozen is to you. Thanks for all your help. Please send John's Email address so I can write him about a watch. 4 feet off the floor, Jim Robinson
Gentlemen, Could not be happier to tell you that I passed the Test as well as my other two friends from Hypower. Again, thank you for that week in "hell". It paid off. Once again, thank you for your time and for teaching and training us during the last week. If you ask me, I think your "boot camp" paid off. I have a good feeling that I passed because I was able to find most answers. I am hoping I bubble them right. We had a little bit of everything. There were three problems about relays, no load calc, no range and two questions from the Contractor's Manual in the morning. The afternoon part was pretty much straight forward. On another note, guess what? The guy sitting next to me had one book: the NEC. At least he knew who Mike Holt was because he had Mike Holt's Exam Prep Book and the NEC Changes but he was told to put them away. You will probably see him in July. Again, thank you. Sincerely, Edwin R. Rosario, P.E. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey John, remember me, Emmett Jarvis, the guy in the middle of class that never spoke, really didn't have many questions. Thanks for the great review of material, I scored a 91% on the State Exam. Now comes the next million page application. Just thought a 91% would give you some class fodder. Thanks again, Emmett Jarvis
