What makes PAT Testing Expert courses different to all the others advertised?
There are lots of reasons why we think our courses are better than the others, but the main thing has to be our trainer - Tim James! As you are probably already aware, Tim has been working in the field for over 30 years, and is regarded by many as the UK's leading expert in the field of PAT Testing. If he doesn't know the answer to a question about PAT Testing - it's probably not worth knowing. We've noticed that a few PAT testing companies have decided to 'jump on the bandwagon' recently and offer courses of their own. A chap who's been working as a PAT tester for a couple of years and has turned his hand to training other people is not likely to be the most inspiring of teachers! Tim James has been teaching people to carry out PAT Testing since 1993, and working in the field for much longer. As well as delivering courses for PAT Testing Expert, he's also Standards Director of the Portable Appliance Testing Trade Association (PATTA) and advises government on issues to do with electrical safety through membership of the Business Reference Panel. He's also, at the time of writing, in the process of helping to update the IET Code of Practice, especially in regard to the test processes and procedures. His courses are all delivered in a lively, friendly and down-to-earth (no pun intended) manner - people often tell us that our courses are the best they have ever attended!
We also strive to make the day as enjoyable and comfortable as possible - unlike our competitors, all of our courses are held in top hotels across the UK (usually Hilton or Marriott or similar) and we go out of our way to provide a top quality service. Lunch is always included (usually this is a 2 or 3 course lunch in the hotel restaurant) and coffee and tea are free-flowing throughout the day. We always use training rooms which are large enough to set up all of the practical experiments, airconditioned for comfort and quiet enough for us to concentrate. We could shave a few quid off the course fee and hold it in the back room of a pub, but why shouldn't we go somewhere decent for a change?
Our course also includes free training materials, including a comprehensive manual, sample log-books and record keeping sheets.
