Further Information About The Course

PAT Testing Expert are the only training company to use high quality venues for our courses - we don't use poky training rooms on industrial estates, and we don't hold our courses in Travelodges either! Our events are all held in high quality hotels, with excellent facilities. All of our training rooms are large enough for the practical work, air conditioned and comfortable. Our Reading course is held at the fabulous Reading Hilton - a spectacular venue, close the the city centre, but also accessible by car - FREE car parking is available on site when you book on the course. Please also remember that our course fees INCLUDE all the tuition, handbooks and reference material (you'll take away a package of useful information) and we also include lunch and refreshments during the day.

The Reading Hilton is a few minutes in a taxi from the main railway, bus or tram stations in the city centre. Parking is available on site, and is included in the course fee. The hotel is easily accessible from Junction 11 of the M4, and there are regular buses from the city centre.

If the dates at Reading don't suit, remember we also run courses at many other locations, including Southampton, London, Cardiff, The Midlands and the South West!

You are welcome to bring your own PAT Tester with you on the day, or you can use ours! We always have a selection of industry standard PAT Testers for you to use on the day, and we can give you unbiased advice on which are the best machines to purchase.
