Competent Person Course

 £234.00 (£195 +VAT)

PAT testing course

Our Competent Person PAT testing course is based around the IET Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing. The course provides students with the necessary practical skills and technical knowledge needed to be a competent person for PAT testing. We focus on hands-on learning and make use of practical examples wherever possible to cover the syllabus. We deliberately keep our class sizes small, maximum 8 people, allowing students to ask questions and receive individual guidance from our experienced instructors. Following the course, students will be able to inspect and test all electrical equipment commonly found in the workplace, from office equipment to power tools.

Students will receive a certificate of competence upon successful completion of a practical assessment. We provide a variety of test instruments for use during the course, but students are also welcome to bring their own test equipment to use. Each student receives a comprehensive PAT training manual and access to our technical helpline for advice and guidance following the course. This course is suitable for anyone looking to carry out the inspection and testing of electrical equipment within the workplace. No previous electrical experience or qualifications are required. If you have a number of people to train, we can also offer this as an onsite training course at your site.

City & Guilds 2377 Qualification

 £390.00 (£325 +VAT)

City and Guilds 2377-77 qualification

City & Guilds 2377-77 is a recognised qualification for PAT testing. This qualification is not a legal requirement and is primarily aimed at those already working within the electrical industry looking to progress their career, or those looking to start a business in electrical equipment maintenance and testing.

The C&G PAT testing course is run over two days and combines both practical and theory elements to cover the City & Guilds 2377-77 syllabus. The assessment is comprised of two elements, a practical assignment (Unit 702) and a 1 hour 45 minute multiple choice online exam (Unit 701). Upon successful completion, candidates will gain the City & Guilds 2377-77 qualification.

There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification; however, the course assumes that those attending have a good understanding of basic electrical principles. Candidates must also have a copy of the IET Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment 5th edition. We provide a training manual and practice mock exams that can be accessed via the course account to study before attending.
