The safety of people working in your work premise can be ensured through regular PAT testing of electrical equipments. The PAT testing courses help employees in an organization to identify faults in electrical equipments before an electrical accident occurs. These courses are essential for creating in-house workforces knowledgeable of the strict IEE regulations.

Features of PAT testing courses

The highly rated PAT training courses give equal emphasis on the theories and practices of PAT testing.

Identifying electrical appliances and risk factors

The appliances that require PAT testing include common portable appliances that weigh less than 18 kg such as toaster, vacuum cleaner, electric cookers and food mixers, hand held equipments such as hair dryer, fixed electrical appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioning system and bathroom heaters and information technology equipments such as computers and photo copiers.

Candidates enrolled in the PAT testing courses learn how to assess the risk levels of the various electrical equipments used in an organization. Equipments with 240V electric motor or built-in heating units are moderately risky. The risk level is highest in appliances with flexible cords or equipments that are used in a harsh or wet condition. Identifying the exact risk factors of the different electrical equipments is the first step in PAT testing.

Inspection and testing

The PAT testing courses train candidates in the different areas of in-service testing. In addition to identifying the defects in electrical equipments through preliminary visual inspection and PAT testing, a person trained in PAT testing also tests the equipments after they are repaired.

To prevent electrical accidents that might occur during the PAT tests, candidates attending PAT testing courses are trained about the safe use of the electrical testing equipments.

Different types of PAT testing courses

PAT testing courses are conducted by PAT testing professionals at PAT testing training centers allover UK. For organizations interested in creating a workforce trained in PAT testing, PAT testing courses are also offered by reputed PAT training organizations in the premises of their clients. No prior knowledge in PAT testing is required for joining the PAT testing training courses. The courses can be completed within a day. While training in-house staff in organizations that do not have a PAT tester, the training organizations usually supply PAT testers to candidates during the course. The courses are designed according to the Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) guidelines. Certificates are awarded after the completion of the PAT testing course.
