We offer a variety of PAT testing courses at Able Skills in an attempt to cover the requirements of both experienced electricians and those with non-electrical backgrounds. We offer 2 PAT testing qualifications: C&G 2377-22: In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment (PAT) and 2377-32: Management Requirements for the Maintenance of Electrical Equipment
What You’ll Learn
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 places a legal accountability on employers, employees and self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and to take reasonable and practical steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of electrical equipment - this requires a regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing. Every item of electrical equipment in a commercial environment is required to be tested to ensure that it is safe to use and has been marked safe. A competent person must inspect the installation regularly in any public building or a place that people work. The Portable Appliance Testing scheme is designed to ensure that those responsible for the maintenance and/or practical inspection and testing of electrical equipment are familiar with the use of the IET Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment.
C&G 2377-22 - Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment is aimed at those undertaking practical inspection and testing of electrical equipment and C&G 2377-32 - Management Requirements for the Maintenance of Electrical Equipment, allows those with an administrative responsibility for the testing and inspection of electrical equipment to gain a qualification suitable to their job role.
How You’ll Learn
The Portable Appliance Course will cover electrical safety regulations, role and responsibilities, insulation and earthing, classification of appliances, preliminary inspection, test precautions, appliance testing using a portable tester, essential and optional tests, labelling tests, reporting and recording results and implementing a test programme. Portable Appliance Testing courses are predominantly theory based as there are on-line exams to complete however there is also a practical assessment associated with the C&G 2377-22 award so practical training with the aid of PAT testing equipment will be undertaken.
Courses Open To You After
If you only opt to undertake the C&G 2377-22 PAT Testing Course - Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment, you may also want to consider adding the Management Requirements for the Maintenance of Electrical Equipment at a later date.
These courses are available in 2 days. Both on-line exams are open-book so it is essential that you have a copy of IET Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment. We also recommend this as pre-course reading material.
