PAT Testing Course in the heart of London Docklands - Book today!

PAT Testing Expert present a one-day, certificated training course in Portable Appliance Testing.

Tim James is your trainer for the day - he has worked for more than 30 years in the PAT Testing business, and is considered to be the one of the UK's leading experts in the field of PAT Testing. This is not a lecture, but a hands-on practical seminar. Our course is designed to give you the right mix of knowledge and experience - giving you the chance to learn on real PAT testing machines, testing real equipment. We cover all of the legal requirements as well as teaching you everything you need to know about the theory. In addition, you will receive plenty of hands-on experience, giving you the confidence and the competence to carry out PAT testing at the end of the day. Unlike many of our competitors we're not aligned to any one manufacturer - so you'll get to practice on a whole range of different pat testing machines - and there's no hard sell - you won't be pressurised into buying an expensive machine, but we can give you unbiased information about the best machines on the market if you want.

You will be competent to carry out PAT Testing at the end of the day, and you will receive a certificate to say you've completed the course. Because we run the course with small, closely supervised groups, we can use a system of continuous assessment during the day. If any person is struggling on any issue, we can go over that subject in a little more detail before moving on. In this way, we can ensure everyone reaches the required standard during the day, without having to resort to a written 'test.'

Book today and see for yourself why PAT Testing Expert are considered to be the UK's leading experts in the business of PAT Testing Training.

Lunch and refreshments are provided during the day, and are included in the course fee. Please note that we do limit the number of people on each date to ensure that everybody benefits. Courses often fill up - Book now to reserve your space!

Finding a venue in Docklands / Canary Wharf for our PAT Testing courses was never going to be easy. But the DoubleTree Hilton at Docklands Riverside ticks every box!

  • Free Parking on-site
  • Outside the congestion zone
  • Easy to get to by public transport
  • Comfortable training rooms and excellent catering (lunch and refreshments are included in the course fee)

The great thing about this venue is that it is on the South Bank of the Thames in Rotherhithe - directly opposite Canary Wharf, which means it's easy to get to by car and there's free parking on site. If you are driving from Kent or Sussex it's easy to find and you don't have the hassle of driving into the city. From Central or East London, or from Essex, you can drive through the Rotherhithe tunnel or over Tower Bridge without entering the congestion charge zone.

If you are planning to attend by public transport, there is an easy and frequent bus service from Canada Water station (or else the journey is about 5 mins in a taxi) or you can get the DLR or Jubilee line to Canary Wharf and catch the free ferry direct to the hotel.
