Glasgow PAT testing training courses from PAT Testing Expert.

Our courses are not lectures, but interactive training events with a combination of theory and practical. We provide access to a range of industry standard PAT Testers, so you can learn on a standard machine. We also have information about all of the PAT Testers on the market, so can point you in the right direction!

We cover testing of all portable appliances, including IT equipment, industrial equipment including 3 phase, power tools including 230V and 110V as well as domestic and commercial equipment. If it's got a plug on, it needs testing. If it needs testing, we'll show you how to do it!

We usually run several courses each year at Glasgow, so there is probably one coming up soon!

Our Scotland PAT Testing courses for 2021 are held at the Hilton Hotel, William Street in Glasgow. The venue is easy to access from the main railway or bus stations in Glasgow, and there is also parking (chargable) at the hotel.

For information about the venue, visit the Hilton Website.

There is no exam on our course, but a closely supervised practical session to ensure everyone benefits from the training, and everybody learns the required skills.

Our PAT Testing Course in Glasgow is held at the Hilton Glasgow hotel - a venue with comfortable and spacious training rooms and plenty of space to relax. When we run PAT Testing courses, we always run with small groups and informal presentations (usually less than 12 people on each course) to make sure that everybody has a chance to learn.
