We’ve had thousands of happy delegates passing through our centre over the years, getting the necessary qualifications to pursue their goals.

Whether it was an advanced electrician course or learning how to PAT test, read true stories from the people who completed their training course with us.

Case Studies


Paul’s Electrical Training Story

Although a complete beginner at everything electrical, Paul soon found himself enrolled on the course, beginning in April 2012. Since he was still working at the time, Paul completed the various parts of the course between April and December of that year, learning about Electrical Basics, Introduction to Inspection and Testing, City and Guilds 17th Edition, City and Guilds Building Regulations, Part P for Domestic Installers, City and Guilds 10 Fundamentals in Inspection and Testing, Heating and Boiler Control and Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Installation.

Farming a New PAT Business

“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.”

From the RAF to a PAT Business

“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.”

The 17th Edition Winning Formula

“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.”

Soldier to Inspection and Testing

“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.”

Kevin’s Winning Streak!

A young 18 year old has won a prestigious award. Kevin Gerrard from Shildon won the Megger multifunction tester at PASS’s North Electrical Trade Fair in Stockton on Tees this year.
