Course Details

Each course enables participants to learn a wide range of skills. These include why PAT testing is carried out and the legal obligations of those carrying out the testing.

What is taught on the course?

Everyone attending the course will also be taught the ‘principles of electricity,’ which include understanding readings and measurements, as well as how voltage, current and resistance are related.

Safety is paramount when dealing with electricity, so attendees are taught important elements relating to the subject, such as the need for an earth wire and insulation and how they are tested.

Another key aspect of the course covers how to differentiate between Class 1, 2 and 3 appliances and the correct type of testing required.

The IET Code of Practice is included in the course. Learners are taught how to use it to find the information needed for the test.

The course also teaches how test results should be recorded, the minimum requirements and the software that can be used.

Successful candidates are awarded a Certificate of Competence in PAT testing.
