Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.


Apex Scotland

Apex Scotland is now delivering the Portable Appliance Test (PAT) training course in various venues in Scotland. These courses are designed to teach you how portable appliance testing works. On completion of the course you’ll be a fully qualified PAT tester, which will enable you to offer your services to workplaces throughout Scotland.

Our highly experienced and qualified trainer will deliver the training in either an Apex office or at the premises of an organisation or company.

In order to ensure that all participants are fully ready to undertake PAT testing we will give training on not only the practical side of testing but also the health and safety requirements and the relevant regulations so that those who complete and pass this course know the importance of doing the testing properly and to a high standard.

Who is it for?

Any individual who is considering self-employment or any employee or prospective employee would also find having this qualification an advantage as it will reduce the costs to employers if they have their own qualified PAT tester.

Organisations or companies may also benefit from this course by having on-site PAT testers to comply with legal requirements.
