PAT testing is one of our most popular courses. It is a great way of streaming another source of revenue and will enable you to offer another service to your customers. This course also forms part of the IET Centre of Excellence due to the quality of our training provision.
Is this PAT course right for me?
PAT testing is a skill that can be learned by almost anyone (over the age of 18) such as office maintenance staff or landlords. Some basic electrical knowledge is useful but not essential. In a commercial environment, regulations insist that every item of electrical equipment is tested and certified as being safe to use. For electrical contractors this can be seen as a potentially lucrative new service to add - and one that is required by industry at all levels.
