You don’t have to be an electrician to do a Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) course

Absolutely anyone can PAT test. There’s no electrical background required; provided you can prove that you have a recognised certificate which states you can test electrical appliances for safety, you’re eligible to carry out PAT testing yourself.

At GB Construction Training, we’re able to help professionals from all over the country to gain the PAT testing qualification they need.

City & Guilds 2377-22 & 32 PAT Testing Courses (Home Study Course & Practical)

This Home Study and one day practical PAT testing course covers everything necessary to successfully achieve the City and Guilds certifications. The courses include both a theory element and practical elements.

This course is 2 PAT testing courses in 1 covering both the 2377-22 and 2377-32 City and Guilds qualifications. These are the latest and most up to date qualifications available from City & Guilds in PAT Testing.
