PAT Testing & Portable Appliance Testing Training Sheffield, South Yorkshire
At PAT Testing Expert, we've been involved in the field of Portable Appliance Testing for more than 28 years, and our trainer has been teaching people to carry out PAT Testing since the early 1990's. If you need training in PAT Testing, we can teach you!
We run regular dates at Sheffield - usually about 4 dates per year. Check out the dates page for the next date!
The PAT Testing training course is certificated, and we provide all of the materials and equipment for the course. However, if you have already purchased a PAT tester you are welcome to bring it with with you - we'll show you how to get the best from it. Otherwise we'll give you unbiased information about the best machines to buy! At the end of the day - you'll be able to carry out PAT Testing in your own premises, or even offer a PAT Testing Service to your customers. We can even help you if you are thinking of setting up a PAT Testing Business!
We will provide you with all of the information you need to get started, including information on the best equipment to use and loads of valuable hints and tips to save you time. If you have lots of people to train - why not consider letting us arrange a special date for you, or an in-house course at your premises?
PAT Testing is mainly about common sense, and you do not need loads of prior knowledge to get started you certainly DON'T need to be a qualified electrician to carry out PAT Testing. In fact, all you need is a willingness to learn, and some common sense.

Our events are all held in high quality hotels, with excellent facilities. All of our training rooms are large enough for the practical work, air conditioned and comfortable. Our Sheffield course is held at the fabulous Sheffield Hilton - a spectacular venue, close the the city centre, but also accessible by car - FREE car parking is available on site when you book on the course. Please also remember that our course fees INCLUDE all the tuition, handbooks and reference material (you'll take away a package of useful information) and we also include lunch and refreshments during the day.
Please note that we do limit the number of people on each date to ensure that everybody benefits and that everybody has a chance to ask questions and make sure they understand. Courses often fill up so avoid disappointment - Book now to reserve your space!
You are welcome to bring your own PAT Tester with you on the day, or you can use ours! We always have a selection of industry standard PAT Testers for you to use on the day, and we can give you unbiased advice on which are the best machines to purchase.
