Theory-based City & Guilds course for the In-Service Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment

The 2377-77 course from City and Guilds is a PAT testing course that provides you with a recognised qualification in portable appliance testing procedures.

Over a two day period, the course allows candidates to learn PAT testing and gain a recognised qualification from a leading qualification body widely known in the industry for quality training.

As theory-based course learners will be required to do some reading and learn the basic aspects of PAT testing procedure to be able to carry out the task effectively and with competence.

Many employers require a qualification like this as proof of knowledge and skills in a subject before they will employ someone to perform the task. This course can adequately provide this and is recognised across the country as a leading qualification in PAT testing procedures.

Who is the course designed for?

The two day PAT testing course is most suited to those responsible for the maintenance of portable appliances in work environments and those who would like to take up PAT testing as a career.

The choice to take up PAT testing can stem from many aspects. Some need to train to be able to test appliances in-house for their company alongside their main job, whereas some want to make it their main career and set up a business PAT testing for companies.

Both of these types of people will find this course ideal for their needs.
