Course Detail

Our online course is a fully immersive and interactive experience. The training is accessed through our easy to use online learning platform, and it contains exactly the same information and resources as our face-to-face course.

The theory and OHS aspect of training includes interactive videos, information and assessments, while the practical component will be performed via a live video stream with our trainer in our virtual classroom (accessed by Zoom).

Students must be at least 16 years old to complete this training.

How it Works

The Process

There's two parts of this online course that need to be completed. Initially, you will be sent login details from us which will give you access to the online learning platform. From there, you will complete all the theory learning and assessments. This is made up of multiple-choice questions, and interactive quizzes.

For the practical assessment component, you will be guided by our expert trainer via video link. They will instruct you on how to operate the PAT tester, and ask you to perform a variety of tests and record results. If you are successful in passing both components, you will deemed a ‘Competent Person’ and we will issue you a certificate and identification number to allow you start testing and tagging.
