Tim James has been working in the business of PAT Testing for over 30 years, and teaching people to carry it out for more than 25 years. He can teach you, or your colleagues to carry out this vital health and safety task.

Our PAT Testing training course gives you a valuable certificate of competence, and you'll be able to carry out PAT Testing for your own organisation, or as a service to other people.

Further Information About The Course

Specialist training from the Experts! Our trainer, TIM JAMES has been teaching people to carry out PAT Testing since 1993, and has been involved in the PAT Testing business for much longer - he's widely regarded as one of the UK's leading experts in the field. This is not a lecture, but a practical, hands-on course, designed to teach REAL WORLD PAT Testing.

Learn what you need to, in a relaxed and comfortable environment, then put it in to practice straight away with a series of practical exercises. There is no exam on our course (you won't fail - we guarantee it!) but there is a closely supervised practical session to ensure everyone benefits from the training, and everybody learns the required skills before the day is out. We always run the courses with small groups to make sure everybody gets plenty of experience and practice.
