Portable Appliance Testing
PAT (Portable Appliance Testing) is a routine inspection and test of portable electrical equipment.
This tests whether electrical equipment will function without the risk of giving the user a shock.
Does your business need PAT Testing?
If your answer is yes to any of the following, then PAT Testing is required.
Portable electrical appliances* are used at your business premises.
5 or more people are employed at your business.
Health & Safety risk assessments are carried out at your business premises.
*A portable electrical appliance is any anything which you can move around and plug into an electrical socket e.g. computers, monitors, printers, kettles, microwave ovens, power leads.
It is recommended that PAT Testing is carried out every 6-12 months to minimise the risk of injury to employees.
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 requires that all electrical equipment in non-residential premises is maintained. There is no legal requirement to have PAT undertaken in law however, as a duty of care to workers there is a legal responsibility to ensure workers are not exposed to risks of electric shock from poorly maintained appliances.

HI Mike Just wanted to say how delighted we were with ACE, all of your Trainers were excellent, they were all nice people and easy to get on with. Thank you so much for stepping into the breach after our previous trainer suddenly retired through ill health. We now have you listed as our preferred supplier and will use you going forward for any new starters and renewals etc .Once again many thanks. Regards Nicola Chambers Fulfilment & Warehouse Manager
“At Guest Express Transport we have 28 members of staff with approx. 4 that actually hold a national forklift certificate and the rest have a very good knowledge of fork truck driving. I decided to put one member through the instructors course with the view to have all staff members trained to the same level and a level that we as a company are satisfied with. I ended up doing the course myself and I am actually glad I did as it really does highlight the bad habits we all pick up over the years and dangers we put ourselves through every day without even realising!! But fortunately Zoe came in and changed all that within 5 days. I would recommend Ace Trainers for this as they were by far the best on price (I had 4 other quotes as a comparison) and like Guest Express Transport are a family run business and appreciate your business and did go the extra mile to make sure we / I was satisfied. I have now also booked our next 5 years of drivers CPC training, again at a very competitive price and will continue our relationship whenever I need professional people to train my staff to a professional level” In House Instructors Course – 07/01/2013
We have used Ace for all our Overhead Crane, Fork lifting, Pallet Truck, Abrasive Wheel training for 6 years , Amazing customer services and instructors, We wouldn’t use anyone else . Helen HR Manager
Very happy with the fork lift training delivered on site. I’d happily recommend Ace Trainers. Kevin Holden
With being made redundant and with warehouse skills but not fork lift qualified, I attended a counter balance and reach fork lift truck operator course with Ace trainers at their training centre in Basingstoke. The instructors there, male and female were impressive and very professional. They are well knowledgeable in all subjects relating to fork lifting including Health and Safety regulations. Armed with my new/previous skills and knowledge gained from Acetrainers, I have landed a brilliant and dare I say, well paid warehouse management job.Thanks Mike and your instructors, you are the best. PS Will be sending my guys to you for training when they are due for renewal. 🙂 George Rater

I would recommend Ace Trainers , There pricing is very reasonable and below the market average however the level of training is top rate, I would be happy to tell my fellow businessmen about your service, We initially used Ace Trainers for one booking which lead into an additional two bookings due to the service and training received
The course was tailored to our needs which was fantastic because we had one complete beginner, one person with a little experience and one person who just need a refresher. Even with these very different levels of experience the candidates found the course easy to understand. All candidates passed the course and the course which was fantastic. The tutors were friendly and very knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend this course and it was excellent value for money!
I cannot thank you enough for your assistance and professionalism regarding an enquiry I made at the 11th hour so to speak. It is so refreshing to receive a prompt and professional service. I do wish you every success future as you deserve it. The level of training received was excellent. Thank you again.
JB, Facilities Manager
