Portable Appliance Testing (Ref: 251016FI)

Fife Renewables Innovation Centre

  • October 25, 2016
    9:45 am - 4:00 pm

All landlords now 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)). This applies from the following dates: –

1 December 2015 – for any new tenancies entered into on or after this date (this includes current tenants signing a new lease)

1 December 2016 – for existing tenancies

With the final deadline for existing tenancies to have a PAT report in place approaching this would be the ideal time for landlords who would like to be able to carry out their own PAT testing to undertake the competency training required before 1 December 2016.

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, letting agents, hotel and B&B owners.

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

The trainers 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 £240 plus carriage and VAT).

Course tutors:  Neville Croucher and Karen Croucher, Quick Test
