At PAT Testing Expert, we know a thing or two about PAT Testing!

Our trainer, TIM JAMES, has been working in the field for more than 30 years - you'll be learning from the expert. Moreover, Tim is on the IET committee that recently updated the Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing, so you can be guaranteed to get the latest and most up-to-date information. We hold all of our training courses in top hotels or conference centres, and we always include coffee/tea AND a restaurant lunch in the course fee. People who attend our courses regularly tell us that our course in the best they have ever attended - read our testimonials!

We use a system of continual assessment during the day so everyone reaches the required standard, and it is very rare that somebody fails the course (if anyone is struggling we give them extra help in the important areas) and we always run our courses with small groups to ensure that we can answer everyone's queries and clear up any gaps during the day. The course contains a carefully balance MIX of theory and practical to allow you to put into practice what you learn, straight away.

Our PAT Testing Course is led by Tim James - many will say he is the UK's leading expert on PAT Testing - with over 30 years in the industry he imparts his experience and knowledge over the course of the day, so you learn all you need to, to carry out PAT testing in your own workplace, or to offer a PAT Testing service to your customers and colleagues. We don't run 15 different courses, and we don't have a big team of 'instructors.' We specialise purely in teaching people how to carry out PAT Testing, and you'll be learning from an acknowledged expert in the field.

The course is certificated - so you can carry out PAT testing with confidence once you have attended the course. Our course is not a lecture, but a practical based course which gives you vital experience in the subject. We limit the numbers on the course to ensure that everybody benefits from the day.

Our dates at London are extremely popular - dates often get booked up in advance, and we do turn people away when we're full. Contact us today to reserve your space on our PAT Testing Course.
