City & Guilds 2377-77 – PAT Testing Course | 2 days
Who is this PAT course aimed at?
This PAT testing course is aimed at individuals who have an electrical background and basic electrical knowledge – it is ideal for those who are responsible for the maintenance of electrical equipment and those undertaking practical Inspection and Testing of electrical equipment. PAT testing, also known as in-service Inspection and Testing of electrical equipment, provides additional revenue for many electricians. Whilst PAT testing is not a legal requirement, the law does state that employers must ensure portable electrics are maintained to prevent any risks and danger, the HSE recommends PAT Testing to maintain equipment.
We also have a three-day PAT testing course which is ideal for beginners with no experience.
