HTPP-056 PAT Testing Training Course

Type of Course: Health Safety & Environment
Course Reference: HTPP-056

You do not need to be an electrician to carry out PAT testing. In theory, anyone can carry out PAT testing provided that they have the appropriate knowledge on how to perform the task safely. Undertaking a professional PAT training course is widely recognised as the best option for obtaining this knowledge and competency.

These PAT training courses are ideal for anyone, either with or without prior experience, looking to undertake PAT testing with confidence.

We train in compliance with the 5th Edition of “In Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment” by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

During our hands-on training courses we provide a selection of different PAT testers for use on the day. If you already have a PAT tester, you are welcome to bring this along and our tutors can help familiarise you with the operation of your PAT equipment.
