What will I learn:
The course starts with an introduction to the subject of portable appliance testing and an overview of the functions and operation of the test instruments required. The course then develops to look at the types of appliances and classes of equipment usually encountered and the tests which are applied to each appliance. Each test will be demonstrated using sample equipment and delegates will have the opportunity to use and operate the test instruments. The course concludes with a Q&A session giving those attending the chance to ask individual questions and seek clarification and guidance.
Using up-to-date portable appliance testers and software, delegates will learn how to carry out the full range of tests required on a variety of typical appliances. The course is delivered by one of our qualified and experienced PAT Test tutors in a friendly yet informative style.
