PAT Testing Courses in the South West of England

As per the Electricity at Work Regulations Act, all electrical systems need to be inspected and appropriately maintained to prevent danger to their users. Due to this, a PAT (Portable Appliance Testing) course is vital for anyone looking for a career within the electrical industry.

Our PAT training combines two individual qualifications – the City & Guilds 2377-22 Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment Certificate and 2377-32 Management of electrical equipment maintenance – into one comprehensive course that ensures candidates the full scope of PAT testing.

These are considered must-have qualifications in the industry, so make sure that you don’t fall behind and earn these as part of your electrician career!

PAT Testing Course Breakdown

The PAT testing courses are equally divided into two modules, each focusing on a different half of the qualification and thus a different aspect of PAT testing. One looks at the inspection and testing of electrical equipment, while the other covers management and maintenance. Between the two modules you’ll study the following topics:
  • Essential and optional tests
  • How to report and record results
  • Preliminary inspection and testing precautions
  • How to use a Portable Appliance Tester
  • How to implement a test programme
  • Categories, frequency and practicalities of PAT Testing
  • Label assets and bar coding
  • Maintaining the asset register
  • Documentation, procedures and user responsibilities
Rounding off the course are two “open book” multiple-choice exams, with your results being presented immediately at the end of them. Training Courses Bristol maintain an exceptionally high pass rate, so should you choose to train with us you’ll find yourself qualified in no time at all.
