Glasgow PAT testing training courses from PAT Testing Expert. Our courses are not lectures, but interactive training events with a combination of theory and practical. We provide access to a range of industry standard PAT Testers, so you can learn on a standard machine. We also have information about all of the PAT Testers on the market, so can point you in the right direction!
We cover testing of all portable appliances, including IT equipment, industrial equipment including 3 phase, power tools including 230V and 110V as well as domestic and commercial equipment. If it's got a plug on, it needs testing. If it needs testing, we'll show you how to do it!
We usually run several courses each year at Glasgow, so there is probably one coming up soon! Check out the dates page to find out more.
Our Scotland PAT Testing courses for 2014 are held at the Hilton Hotel, William Street in Glasgow. The venue is easy to access from the main railway or bus stations in Glasgow, and there is also parking (chargable) at the hotel.
