PAT Training



Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing) is the process by which electrical appliances are checked to see if they are safe. To be able to carry out PAT Testing yourself you need to be deemed competent.

Our PAT Training Courses can be delivered remotely, at your place of work or at one of our scheduled courses in Cork, Dublin or Galway. The course will take a full day to complete and are carried out  by our highly qualified training instructors with extensive experience in their field.

Partaking in this PAT Training course will give you an in depth understanding of what PAT testing is, the legal conditions to PAT testing, various testing methods involved in PAT testing as well as the applicable equipment needed. Our course is very reasonably priced at €350 per person or group rates can be arranged for on-site courses.

We are a Registered Training Provider as awarded by Engineers Ireland for 2024. Our courses can be carried out on/off site by our experienced qualified training instructors. See our selection of PAT Training dates.
