Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)

Electrical equipment is present in virtually all workplaces, and that includes portable appliances. This PAT testing course will familiarise you with the task of portable appliance testing and ways you can help minimise the risk of electrocution, electric shock, and electrically-initiated fires in the workplace. You will learn about the basics of PAT so you're able to offer your support and ensure electrical equipment does not put people's health and safety at risk while at work.
