PAT Testing Training Course in Watford, North London

PAT Testing Expert are the leading providers of PAT Testing training courses in the UK. Our trainer, Tim James, has been working in the field of PAT Testing for more than 30 years, and teaching people to carry out Portable Appliance Testing since 1993. He is considered to be one of the UK's leading experts in the field and was on the IET committee that updated the Code of Practice in 2020. Our courses get excellent feedback and many of our bookings come from recommendations. We always base our training on common sense and lots of hands-on practical.

We run several courses a year in Watford, as well as many other venues across the UK. For details of our other London PAT Testing courses see here.

Please note that, unlike some of the other courses advertised, we are NOT aligned to any specific manufacturer or distributor of PAT Testing equipment. This is not a sales seminar and there is no hard-sell on any of our events. Although we can, and do, provide advice on the best machines to buy, we always provide a mix of equipment on our courses and we do not 'push' or 'bias' towards any particular manufacturer. If you have a machine already, you are welcome to bring it with you, and if not, we'll give you UNBIASED advice on what machine will be best for you.

Our dates at London are extremely popular - dates often get booked up in advance; and we do restrict numbers very carefully to ensure social distancing. Contact us today to reserve your space on our Watford PAT Testing Course!

If you have more than 5 people to train, you may find it cheaper to organise an in-house course (at your premises) or we can arrange a special date for you at this hotel, or another nearby. Contact us for more information.

The PAT Testing training course is certificated, and we provide all of the materials and equipment for the course. However, if you have already purchased a PAT tester you are welcome to bring it with with you - we'll show you how to get the best from it. Otherwise we'll give you unbiased information about the best machines to buy!
