Is this 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. If you do not have an electrical background we would recommend taking our 3 Day PAT Testing Course.

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 & 2377-32 PAT Testing Courses Content:

These two qualifications taken together give you the best possible return on your time and investment. Most candidates use the advantage of taking the two together.
