NLA Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) Course
We show you how to carry out vital safety checks effectively for any portable appliances you provide, in order to protect your tenants’ safety.
It is the landlord’s responsibility to ensure any electrical equipment provided to your tenant is free of risk of injury to tenants when the tenancy begins and are in proper working order throughout the tenancy.
Our one-day course provides you with practical knowledge on the use of PAT testing equipment. Our theory session takes you through the latest IET code of practice and HSE guidance with secure theoretical learning where you can back up what you learn immediately with hands-on practical sessions. Delegates will inspect and PAT test a variety of portable electrical appliances with expert guidance from our trainer.
At the end of this course delegates are tested to ensure they are a "Competent Person" to confirm they can carry out these vital safety checks and certification is issued on satisfactory completion. Prior knowledge of PAT testing or electricity is not required to attend this course.
