  • Charities and shop owners who deal with recycled electrical goods
  • Absolutely anyone else who has portable appliances in the workplace

Why take a PAT Testing course?

Every item of electrical equipment in a commercial environment is required to be PAT tested, that is it has been tested as being safe to use and has been marked safe, whether it be a kettle, toaster or computer.

PAT testing is a great way of streaming another source of revenue and will enable you to offer another service to your customers.

Are the PAT courses right for me?

PAT testing is a skill that can be learned by almost anyone (over the age of 18) such as office maintenance staff or landlords. Some basic electrical knowledge is useful but not essential. In a commercial environment, regulations insist that every item of electrical equipment is tested and certified as being safe to use. For electrical contractors, this can be seen as a potentially lucrative new service to add - and one that is required by industry at all levels.

Text books required

We recommend that you familiarise yourself with the book before you come on the course. Ideally if you read the contents page, glossary and the index and find out what the book covers overall this will help you when you start the course.
