We have been successfully holding PAT Training courses in Leeds and on our customers own premises since 1999. Many of our former students have gone on to establish successful PAT testing business's in different parts of the UK. We regularly train staff from local authorities, schools & colleges etc as well as those from national, regional and local companies.
We can offer a range of Portable Appliance Testing courses, suitable for most popular types of PAT testers. Courses are usually held in Leeds, West Yorkshire and also at our Head Office in Hamilton, Scotland. We can also arrange training on-site for up to 10 people, which can be tailored to your individual needs. Please contact us to discuss dates and prices.
