AS/NZS3760 Courses

AS/NZ3760:2010 Test And Tag
Training Course

In-service safety inspection and testing
of electrical equipment

This course teaches people (often including electricians) how to test and tag electrical items correctly and safely and how to operate the test equipment which will normally be a PAT tester.  It also teaches regulatory requirements such as record keeping, tag information and who can do what etc.

Legally to test in accordance with AS/NZS3760 (known as the test and tag Standard) you do not need to be electrically registered, but you do need to be deemed competent.  It is the aim of this course to make people competent and the course includes theory and practical, along with an assessment which contains theory and practical testing using a PAT (Portable Appliance Tester).  PATs are available on the course, or you can bring your own if you already own one.  If you do not have a PAT, then come along and see different ones before you purchase.  We will show you what PAT you need to test for safety and compliance.

More Info

Legally you are not required to do any training, but in today’s world it would, we believe, be incredibly unwise to accredit yourself or a colleague as competent based on your knowledge. The Standard puts a lot of emphasis on the ‘responsible person’ having deemed the ‘competent person’ competent.  We believe that this ‘responsible person’ needs protection and likewise the competent person (who probably also needs training anyway).

Very few people know all the necessary information about testing and tagging and this includes electrical workers, unless they have had training. Under current H & S legislation companies and organisations also need to minimise their liability and this can be done by having professional training.

All our trainers are full time working in the industry and do not just have head knowledge, but ‘rubber on the road’ knowledge.  So, if you want to test your own electrical items this course is for you.

On passing the course all attendees are given a Photo ID Licence and Competency Certificate – what’s more there is a lifetime of support available from people who are dedicated to the industry.

Courses are run either at your premises (in-house course) or at venues around the country with the most frequently run courses being in Auckland and Christchurch (other centres are also covered).

Courses are one-day and no electrical background is required.  Metrotest have been running these courses since 1998 and operate a nationwide test and tag service so we don’t believe our friendly helpful team can be beaten on knowledge and experience. We believe in doing it right and that’s what we will teach you.

No previous electrical knowledge or background is required
