A typical day of a portable appliance testing (PAT) engineer

As a Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) engineer, no two days are the same. From hospitals to retail outlets, as an experienced PAT tester, you’ll find yourself in a variety of locations and environments. A typical day for a PAT tester starts with packing up all the necessary tools and equipment – including testers and record books – into the van before setting off to the first job.
Once on site, it’s time to get started on testing all appliances, such as microwaves, kettles and computers that require PAT testing. This can involve using various types of test instruments designed to check whether electrical items are safe for continued use or need to be replaced or repaired. As the PAT tester, you’ll also need to inform users of the results and explain why certain appliances may be unfit for use.
When all the testing is complete, you’ll record your findings in a dedicated PAT test report book or onto an electronic system and provide employers with a copy. You may also be required to fill out additional paperwork such as completion certificates and checklists.

It takes skill, experience and patience to be successful in this role but the rewards are great. As a PAT testing engineer, you’ll be helping to keep workplaces safe as well as developing your own knowledge and expertise in the process.

It’s a career that provides plenty of variety and opportunities for advancement – so if you’re looking for a challenge then this could be the perfect role for you!
