So our friends over at Essential Supplies are running some PAT testing courses again, for those unaware every electrical item in the marquee industry should be PAT tested at least every 12 months. To be honest PAT testing is a bit of a dull job but it’s necessary! Here’s what they have to say:
After the success of our 2009 & 2010 PAT Testing Courses we have arranged some dates for 2011. We will be holding them on 4th/5th/27th and 28th April. The location will be confirmed when we have numbers, but will be in the Basingstoke area.
The aim of our one day ‘practical’ workshop is to obtain an understanding of why PAT Testing is necessary and be able to demonstrate safely and accurately all aspects of electrical testing necessary to perform PAT tests on your own or other peoples electrical equipment.
The course is designed for those within the events industry, although the testing techniques learnt can be used in any industry. You will be shown how to PAT test a wide range of our products from extension leads to metal light fittings and from simple distribution boards to power tools. There will be a maximum of four delegates per day, to ensure you get the most out of the course.
If you have already purchased a PAT tester you are welcome to bring it along to ensure that you get the best from it. Alternatively we will give you advice on testers to buy.
Price £230.00 per delegate (+ VAT)
Course fees include:
The official IET guide: code of practise for in service inspection and testing of electrical equipment. This is a complete reference for you.
Training at customer’s site shall be subject to extra transport costs.
