Portable Appliance Testing

All landlords need 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 or PAT).

Attending this webinar 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.

No electrical knowledge or experience is required.

The webinar includes practical and theory sessions, with teaching interspersed with interactive exercises. The trainer will be on hand to help and answer any questions.

On successful completion of the webinar, each delegate will receive a Certificate of Competence in PAT Testing. All delegates will keep a comprehensive illustrated training manual.

Topics include:

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

What do you need for this training?

  • To complete the course delegates will require a PAT test machine on the day. This does not have to be a Quick Test microPAT, however specific instructions on different machines will not be possible. All delegates will be offered the microPAT Package at a discounted price of £220 + £10 carriage.
  • Delegates are provided with the Quick test training book and additional paperwork.
  • Access to Zoom with camera and microphone, and a PC/laptop or similar device, ideally with a relatively large screen.
  • Delegates require access to electrical appliances for hands-on testing (from your household/office, they do not have to be new). Recommended items include:
    • Multi-gang extension lead
    • Kettle
    • Desk lamp or similar
    • Screwdriver to open plug
