Portable Appliance Testing Course

Our Portable Appliance Testing course (also known as the PAT testing certificate) is vital to both electricians and those responsible for maintaining electrical appliances in their workplace. This course teaches students how to properly maintain appliances in order to prevent any danger, as per the Electricity at Work Regulations (1989).

Our PAT testing course encompasses two different PAT testing qualifications, both of which are required if you wish to work professionally as a PAT tester. The first module provides you with an industry-recognised qualification in portable appliance testing procedures, while the second covers the management of maintaining this equipment.

The Electrician Academy operates several training centres throughout England and Wales. We are easily accessible from all over the UK – train with us and we’ll fully prepare you to take that next step in your career.
