Disclaimer:

 

This course is not appropriate for employees who work in environments rated as greater than low risk. This includes schools, gymnasiums, and any industrial facility. While we provide accurate advice, the responsibility lies with the individual conducting appliance testing to apply these techniques safely and confidently. This course provides awareness level knowledge. In low risk environments, such as offices, it provides sufficient knowledge to allow the learner to conduct PAT Tests. However, in higher risk areas, one requires a greater level of knowledge and this course is not suitable.
