Online PAT Testing Course
Who is this online PAT Testing course aimed at?
This online PAT Testing course is aimed at beginners who are hoping to enter the electrical industry and gain knowledge on in-service inspection and testing. Those who are responsible for the maintenance of electrical equipment in the workplace would benefit from this course as it would allow them to PAT test electrical appliances in-house. The law states that employers must ensure portable electrics are maintained to prevent any potential hazards – the HSE recommends PAT Testing as a way to maintain this equipment.
