This page contains testimonials from delegates who have completed training courses with PASS and came back to tell us how they got on after completing their training courses.

PASS Training Testimonials

Excellent tutor skills to get through the amount of information in the time given. Engaging on a subject that can be swamping in its complexity” – Kim Lawrence, City & Guilds 17th Edition

The location of the training was perfect, nice and relaxed atmosphere. No improvements needed.” – Gavin O’Driscoll, PAT Testing Training Course

All the staff were very welcoming & the food provided was delicious. Most of all I was pleased with the training I received from Pete Scott who made the course interesting & easy to understand. When available, Pete even offered telephone assistance in case I have any problems whilst starting out PAT-testing for the company I work for.” – Shaun Beaumont, PAT Testing Training Course

The trainer was extremely experienced and at no point felt like I didn’t understand the content. He was personable and helpful and any questions from me were answered with ease and efficiency. Fantastic day and I’ve left with a few sayings thanks to Michael. “Loose wires cause fires”, won’t be forgetting that one in a hurry!” – Jon Constable, PAT Testing Training Course

Chris is a great instructor. Overall the course and instructor were excellent.” – V Millard, City & Guilds 17th Edition

The instructor was very good, and I would highly recommend his training. He handled a class with mixed abilities and experience very well, and was clearly an expert in this field. His teaching style was effective and I went from having very little knowledge on the subject to passing the course with 94%!” – David Stott, City & Guilds PAT Testing

Quality of training was excellent and was taught at a level which catered for those with both advanced electrical knowledge and those with little electrical knowledge.” – Paul Nichol, PAT Testing Training Course

“The training I’ve received at PASS is going to help me work with industrial farm equipment at the family business. I wanted to diversify my career options and chose PASS because they were the only company offering what I needed. Coming from a non electrical background, I have enjoyed the course and managed to pass it despite my lack of electrical knowledge. I am looking forward to starting when I get back home.”

“After attending the PASS NET fair, I was lucky enough to win this course. It has been a knowledge refresher for me due to my background as an RAF electrician and recently a convent site manager. It has really helped to update my knowledge and I have gained confidence so I now feel able to go and start testing.”

“I won the 17th edition course at the NET fair and was absolutely ecstatic as it was the only one I really needed. This course is going to further enhance my lifelong ambitions. When I attended the NET fair I was so amazed at PASS’s facilities that I now hope to return and complete other courses. The 17th edition has been tough but is directly related to what I am going to be doing and I think the PASS training centre is brilliant, I have loved my time here.”

“This exam puts me above everyone else in my field, I work for Virgin Media as a technician and there is no one else doing my job in the North East that has this qualification. This gives me more job security especially as my employer has paid for the course. I would have loved to have completed my course here because PASS’s facilities are all set up for courses like this.”
