Half Day PAT Training Refresher Course

Our ½ Day On-line PAT Training Refresher Training Course is a recertification course only available to those who have previously competed the 1 Day PAT Training Course. On successful completion of this refresher course you will be awarded a certification of completion, valid for a further 3 years. Certification is only granted after the participant has once again shown sufficient knowledge and understanding of PAT Testing. 

Our Course is delivered on-line by one of our highly qualified and experienced training instructors with many years of experience and expertise in their field. Using our remote training platform, the training course allows you to receive the same training experience but from the comfort of your office or home. The course typically takes a half day and you will have the opportunity to interact and ask the trainer questions.

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is being carried out by a growing number of companies in Ireland in order to comply with Irish Health & Safety legislation and companies adopting best practice.

The cost of this course is very competitively priced at €195 per person or we can arrange a group rate for companies.
