The person who does PAT testing must be a ‘competent person’ By attending our Cardiff training course, you can gain the skills, knowledge and practical ability to carry out PAT testing safely and in line with regulations defined in the IET Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Equipment and the HSE.

On the course, candidates can expect to learn both the theory and use of PAT testers in practical applications. This knowledge will then be used to complete a 30 question multiple choice exam.
