Training at Your Site

Our on-site courses allows us to tailor the course content to meet your own particular requirements and also offer practical advice specific to your workplace.

We bring everything needed for the course, including sample test equipment. However we can often make the course more relevant by demonstrating the testing using your own equipment. Our trainers have a wide knowledge of most test instruments and can demonstrate various types and offer unbiased advice on the most suitable for your requirements. If you already have your own test equipment, we can use this for the training. We advise on a maximum class size of 8 people, to ensure that all students receive ample one to one training time. As well as being convenient, in-house training often works out the best value option if you have a number of people to train.

PAT Competent Person Course

in-house PAT training

Our on-site PAT Competent Person course is based around theĀ IETĀ Code of Practice, 5th edition, and is suitable for companies and organisations looking to carry out PAT testing in-house. The course is designed to provide technical knowledge and practical skills required to be competent to carry out PAT testing.

We try to make the training as practical as possible with the emphasis on hands on learning. Delegates will receive a certificate of competence upon completion of a practical assessment where they will need to demonstrate their ability to carry out the inspection and testing on a variety of electrical appliances. Delegates do not need to have any previous electrical experience or qualifications to attend this course.

City & Guilds Qualification

in-house course with City and Guilds qualification

Our two day City & Guilds course is designed for delegates looking to gain a recognised qualification. The C&G 2377-77 level 3 award for the In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment, is a nationally recognised qualification for those undertaking PAT testing.

Although there is no legal requirement for this qualification, we recommend having the City and Guilds qualification if you are looking to offer the inspection and testing as a service to other companies.

The course is run over two days and combines both practical and theory elements to cover the City & Guilds syllabus. The assessment is comprised of two elements, a practical assignment and a 1 hour 45 minute exam. Upon successful completion, candidates will gain the City & Guilds 2377-77 qualification.

There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification, however we recommend those attending have a good understanding of basic electrical principles.
