C&G 2377-22 PAT Testing Course
Beginners, Other Trades & Existing Electricians
Why take the C&G 2377-22 PAT Testing Course?
This PAT testing electrical course is very similar to the 2377-32 & 22 but only contains one operator exam. This course is open to all including non-electricians and domestic installers.
Given that every commercial electrical appliance requires PAT testing, this PAT testing course is a very useful qualification and addition to the skill-set of any practicing electrical professional. Undergoing PAT testing training will prove invaluable.
This course has now been replaced by the brand new C&G 2377-77 Qualification. Find out more here.

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.
City & Guilds 2377-22 Course Content:

For this course option, you will take the City & Guilds 2377-22 Operators Registration and Examination. If you also want to take the City & Guilds 2377-32 Management Qualification you should book this PAT course.
