Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
HSE guidance requires that a competent person tests all portable electrical appliances and tools on a regular basis in accordance with manufacturers recommendations, the risks associated with usage and the likelihood of damage.
Many organisations find it cost effective to provide a member of staff with the competence to carry out these tests. Our one-day PAT course provides both theoretical information and practical training in the use of test equipment and the testing process for portable appliances.
On completion of training, delegates will:
- Understand the relevant sections of the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and other information relating to portable equipment and appliance testing
- Be able to use a portable test station and determine whether items are safe to use
- Understand how to record results and maintain records.
Open Courses - Courses are delivered throughout the year at our regional training centres. The cost per delegate is £200.00 plus VAT. The training bundle fee is £180.00 plus VAT. Please click here for more information on our training bundle fee.
Private Courses - If you have 6 or more delegates a private course at a venue of your choice may be a more suitable and cost effective option. Contact our administration team on 01752 201616 for more information or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
