About the course
Attendees will be guided through every aspect of PAT testing in a comprehensive one day course. Divided into two sections, the morning session allows candidates to learn all about the importance of PAT testing, the theory behind it and how to appreciate electrical safety. At the end of the course attendees are then invited to complete a PAT testing exam.
After a short break for lunch (supplied as part of the package) attendees will then be shown how to carry out PAT testing for themselves. We supply a number of different appliances to test along with our own PAT testing equipment, attendees are also invited to bring their own PAT testers along if they wish. This section also instructs candidates how to perform both visual and portable appliance tests in order to ensure maximum safety.
Upon completion of the day and successfully passing the exam, attendees will be presented with a certificate that officially qualifies them as being competent to carry out PAT testing.
The one day course is in Maidstone, Kent and runs from 9AM to approx 4PM.
