We run regular courses in Exeter. Our Pat Testing Training Course in Exeter is perfect for all people wanting to learn about PAT Testing. Our trainer, Tim James, has been teaching people to carry out PAT Testing for more than 20 years, and he's been involved in the business for more than 30 years!

This is a practical hands-on training course, giving you a chance to put into practice what you learn straight away, on a variety of industry standard PAT Test machines. And, unlike other providers, we're not tied in to any manufacturer - so if you are looking to get hold of a machine we can give you unbiased advice on which are the best ones to buy. Our advice is usually to keep it simple!

Our PAT Testing course is certificated - a certificate of completion is presented at the end of the course- you will be able to carry out PAT Testing on your own equipment, or on other people's equipment, once you have completed the course.

The course is ideal if you want to carry out PAT Testing in your own workplace, or if you want to carry out PAT Testing for other people.
