Frequently asked PAT questions

What is PAT Testing?
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 about whether the item is safe and uses a variety of assessment methods.
What is PAC Testing?
A very common error is people call PAT testing PAC testing. PAT testing is Portable Appliance Testing.
Who can do PAT testing?
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.

Everyone's a PAT Testing Expert!
A quick search about PAT testing and just about everyone claims to be a “PAT testing expert”.
Any PAT testing course worth doing will follow the IET Code of Practice (Currently 4th edition). Please ensure your “PAT Testing Expert” courses follows this.
Do you do an online pat testing course?
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.
What areas do you cover for on-site PAT training?
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.
Will i get a certificate?
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 by 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 over.
What is a PAT Tester Calibration?
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.
Having spent the last three decades as a lecturer in electrical engineering at Manchester University, I’ve heard a very large number of presentations and been on a lot of short courses. How did yours compare? Well I I think it was very good, well structured, easy to follow and very informative. Definitely in the top class!
