Just a quick personal note for you – I attended this course last year having had no experience of this type of thing at all – I usually call my husband to deal with all things electrical!  (sad but true).  I came away from the course with a thorough understanding of how to carry out PAT Testing and confident that I would be able to do this.  I have since tested everything in our offices ranging from kettles to cabling, t.v.’s and fridges without issue.

This is a good hands on course with lots of practical advice and guidance, delivered by a qualified Electrician with the ability to deliver information in a way that is easy to comprehend for the non-electrician.


The aim of the course is to enable those attending to gain the necessary skills and knowledge to carry out Portable Appliance Testing in the workplace. This is a non-accredited course, a certificate of attendance will be issued.
