About Our On-Site PAT Training Courses

Firstly, you don’t require any electrical knowledge or experience to carry out PAT testing or participate in our On-site PAT Training Courses.

In theory, everyone can carry out PAT testing provided that they have the appropriate knowledge on how to perform the task without putting themselves or others at risk. Undertaking a professional PAT Training Course is widely recognised as the best way to obtain this knowledge and competency.

Even with little or no prior electrical knowledge, our onsite PAT training course will provide you / your organisation with everything you need to know to carry out PAT testing. This includes everything from basic electrical theory to theoretical and legal aspects of appliance testing as well as plenty of practical and hands-on usage of PAT equipment, performing visual inspections and record keeping.

What To Expect

Our on-site PAT training courses are ideal for companies looking to bring their PAT testing in-house to save costs on external contractors and to gain easier access to PAT testing skills as and when required.

We train people from many different professions including caretakers, maintenance staff, office/clerical workers, landlords, charity shop workers and anyone else working in an environment with electrical appliances and equipment.

Since 2004 we have trained hundreds of companies to undertake appliance testing for themselves and we will ensure that you have enough time to ask questions regarding your own business requirements.

On-site PAT Training Course Specifics (HPAT500 in action)

PAT Training Course Specifics

To deliver our onsite PAT training to the highest standard, we train in accordance with the 4th Edition of “In Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment” written by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). This is widely considered the national guideline for PAT testing.

We provide one copy of the IET Code of Practice free for you to keep after the training and we will provide a copy for each delegate to use throughout the day which will be returned to the tutor upon completion of the course. Additional copies can be purchased at a reduced cost of £40 when booking the course (normally £55).

We can carry out training within your company if you do not already own a PAT tester as we can bring a selection along with us that you can use on the day. If you already own a PAT tester, we recommend you provide this for use during the session as this will allow the tutor to offer attendees specific training for the particular tester.

A maximum of 10 delegates is recommended as this ensures that everyone will be provided with adequate support throughout the day from our experienced tutors.

The course has three open book assessments to help us monitor candidates’ progress and ensure appropriate competency. Successful candidates will receive a Certificate of Competency in PAT Testing.

The following topics are covered during the course:

  • The Legal Requirement to Test
  • Class I, II and III appliances
  • Safety Risks & Typical Faults
  • Frequency of Testing
  • Fuse Ratings & Visual Inspections
  • Earth Bond Resistance Tests
  • Insulation Resistance Tests
  • Earth Leakage & Touch Current

Our tutors are all time-served, qualified electrical operatives, each having over 30 years experience within the electrical and training industries.

Students at Onsite PAT Training Courses

What We Require

To conduct a training course at your Company Premises, we require the use of a safe and quiet room for the entire course duration, large enough for the number of candidates attending with tables and chairs. We do not require the use of an overhead projector as our courses are conducted with the use of flipcharts which we provide along with all course material, pens, pads etc. Please note that the maximum number of staff we can train and supervise on any one day is 10.
