Pat testing is short for portable appliance testing and anyone who deals with or undertakes inspection or testing of portable appliances should take a pat testing course. Portable appliance testing courses can be carried out by anyone you do not need to have any previous electrical experience, but do bear in mind that there will be some technical knowledge that will need to retained for future reference.
If you are thinking of taking a pat testing course then a good place to start looking for a company that offers these courses is in your local newspaper and your local trade directories. Both of these publications will usually have advertisements in them placed by companies who wish to promote their services and products. Take a look around some of the advertisements and contact a few of these companies to find one that best suits your needs for a pat testing course.
Many companies can now offer you the choice of taking the pat testing course at a specialised site or on site at your company. This will depend on how many people you have that require the training, but most companies offer discounts when larger numbers of people take the course. Many large companies now realise that they can have their own pat testing team in-house and have a pat testing course company come to their premises and train a whole team of people to perform pat testing on their own products.
A fantastic place to look for a suitable company to hire for pat testing courses is online via the internet. Most of the training companies now have a website showcasing their services and products. It is easy to find such companies all you need to do is go to an online search engine and type in the word ‘pat testing course’ and it will return a list of company websites that offer these types of courses.
