This comprehensive PAT training ensures you are confident about protecting your tenants’ safety, with your safety as our priority.

Under the Landlord and tenants Act 1985 it is your responsibility to ensure all electrical equipment supplied by you is free of risk of injury to tenants and in full working order at the start of the tenancy and regular safety checks have been carried out during their tenancy to meet your duty of care.
