All landlords have to have fixed wiring (Electrical Installation Condition Report or EICR) checks carried out at least every five years, which must include an appliance check report (a Portable Appliance Test (PAT)).

Attending this course will give landlords the required knowledge to carry out their own PAT testing and, depending on the number of properties/appliances they have, for some this could mean an opportunity to make considerable cost savings.  This course is designed for landlords and letting agents.

No electrical knowledge or experience is required. The course includes practical and theory sessions.

The trainer will be on hand to help and answer any questions.  On successful completion of the course each delegate will receive a Certificate of Competence in PAT Testing.  All delegates will keep a comprehensive illustrated training manual.

When costing this for your own business you would still need to either buy or hire a PAT testing machine to carry out the tests on your appliances.  All delegates will be offered the microPAT Package at a discounted price of £210 plus £10 carriage and VAT (total £264.00) (normally £249 plus carriage and VAT).  If pre-ordered for collection at the course no carriage cost will be incurred.

Course Topics:

  • WHO can PAT test?
  • WHY do we PAT test?
  • WHAT do we PAT test?
  • WHEN do we PAT test?
  • HOW do we PAT test?
