Train to be a PAT Tester!
PAT Testing is not a particularly difficult task, although it is important to do it correctly. It is a great idea to get trained up in PAT Testing – whether you are looking to offer an additional service to your customers, or want to test your own equipment to save money for you or your employer. PAT Testing is a great skill to have – if you do any kind of technical job, it’s a great thing to have on your CV!
You may have heard about the C&G 2377, which is really a qualification on the IET Code of Practice, rather than a qualification in PAT Testing – in other words if you complete a C&G course you will spend a lot of time studying the theory but not so much on the practical aspects. Of course, a C&G qualification looks good on paper, but it doesn’t usually give you the practical knowledge that you need to carry out PAT Testing in the real world.
