Frequently asked questions
Portable appliance testing commonly referred to as PAT testing is a systematic approach to ensuring your portable appliances are safe for continued use. A competent and trained person needs to make the decision of whether the item is safe and uses a variety of assessment methods.
We have recently seen PAT testing courses online and our opinion is that although online learning is great for certain subjects we feel PAT testing is not one of them.
All of our courses have lots of practical training, with online learning this is absent. We have completed the distance / online PAT testing courses that are out there and we have found that the training is very poor.
We do not believe someone could be competent after such training in PAT testing.
A very common error is people call PAT testing PAC testing. PAT testing is Portable Appliance Testing.
We will run our PAT testing course anywhere, we regularly go to clients sites in England, Scotland and Wales. We also have run courses in Europe for some of our customers.
PAT testing is the process of ensuring the appliance is safe, the process that we need to follow to make the decisions that an appliance is safe could be done by most people.
To do PAT testing you need to complete some training and be assessed as competent. Most people after such training could become a PAT tester.
Of course, all successful learners will receive a certificate, if you complete the competency course, you will receive a certificate from us (TTS) and this is accredited bt UKRS. if you complete the City and Guilds version of the course, you will receive a City and Guilds certificate.
There is no requirement for one over the other.
A PAT tester is the test and measurement instrument needed to complete the full PAT test. It measures levels of resistance and it needs to be checked at suitable intervals.
Most manufacturers and the IET Code of Practice state that this should be annual. We can arrange for your PAT tester to be calibrated if you require.
