Stand out from the crowd with membership of a recognised industry certification scheme.

A certificate for certification.

Electricians can include PAT Testing with their Competent Person Scheme (CPS) certification for electrical work by providing copies of City and Guilds qualifications. Many candidates take City and Guilds 2377-32 (Management Requirements for the Maintenance of Electrical Equipment) and City and Guilds 2377-22 (In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment) to deliver a PAT Testing service and manage PAT Testing requirements for a business.

What equipment should be PAT tested?

Portable appliances are defined as those which become connected to a fixed installation (via a flexible cable or plug socket). Some examples of portable appliances include:

  • Kettles
  • Cookers
  • Photocopiers
  • Vending machines
  • Laptops
  • Printers
  • Storage heaters

Electricians who carry out PAT Testing are required to maintain this equipment in a condition which is safe to use.

Help promote your business.

Including PAT Testing with your electrical membership can help to differentiate your business from other electricians. As a certified PAT tester you offer increased credibility to customers and businesses when they are hiring a PAT testing service. Choose Stroma Certification and have your experience backed by an award winning installer certification body.
