City & Guilds 2377-22 PAT Testing Course

Given that every commercial electrical appliance requires PAT testing, this PAT testing course is a very useful qualification and addition to the skill-set of any practicing electrical professional. Undergoing PAT testing training will prove invaluable.

Why take this PAT Testing course?

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

Is this PAT course 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.

This course enables you to undertake PAT testing training and manage the testing process.

For this course option, you will take the City & Guilds 2377-22 Operators Registration and Examination.

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.

This practicals cover everything necessary to successfully achieve the City and Guilds certification.

The course includes both a theory element and practical elements. We take you through the practical disciplines and formal recording processes, as well as preparing you for the online City and Guilds 2377 test.

Do I need any experience?

There are no formal entry requirements.

Where can I carry out PAT testing with the 2377?

Anywhere it is required (domestic, commercial)

If you have any learning difficulties, and require special assistance, please let us know prior to sitting the exam. Please provide any medical documentation verifying this as we can accommodate to your requirements to make sure you get the most out of the course.

What's Included

PAT testing includes a mix of classroom-based theory work plus practical experience of using PAT testers to test portable appliances for safety.

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.
