This course is 2 PAT testing courses in 1 covering both the 2377-22 and 2377-32 City and Guilds qualifications. These are the latest and most up to date qualifications available from City & Guilds in PAT Testing.

A minimum of 30 guided learning hours is required before the Candidate can sit the Exam.

This course is ideal for:

These two qualifications taken together give you the best possible return on your time and investment.

Most candidates use the advantage of taking the two together.

What's Included

Taking place over a single day, PAT testing includes a mix of classroom-based theory work plus practical experience of using PAT testers to test portable appliances for safety. The course aims to develop your understanding of what PAT testing is, the importance of it, the requirements placed upon you as a business/contractor and other associated factors. It also covers the IET Code of Practice (the industry-standard regulation book for PAT testing), basic electrical theory and will give you plenty of hands on time with several PAT testers.

Upon completion of the content you’ll take a multiple-choice, open-book examination. If you pass this exam, you’ll receive your Certificate of Competency in PAT testing and be able to PAT test safely.
