About PATTA Membership

What you get when you join the Portable Appliance Testing Trade Association

Help when you need it

Running a PAT testing business can be tough, whether you are established or just starting out, you will need support and someone to turn to at some point in your journey.

The Portable Appliance Testing Trade Association (PATTA) is here to support you and your business. Whether you are a sole trader or you have a team, PATTA can help.

From providing support through our exclusive members only Facebook group, to real world understanding of the latest guidance, to helpful business templates, online guides and training, plus regular events and supplier discounts, we are here to help, support and guide you not only in your job as a  PAT tester but to make running your business a little bit easier.

Benefits for our members

Supplier discounts – 25% off PAT Labels Online, 25% off Calibration, discounts off Simply Pats software, and we’re working on getting more discounts for our members. Most members utilise these discounts so they more than save the value of their membership, thus making their membership FREE, just by using the savings they make with the great deals we have negotiated for them with the best suppliers in the industry.

Online Training – our resident PAT Testing Expert regularly posts training and guidance videos online which help our members understand changes in guidance and policies. We also provide guidance on helping you to run your business.

Members Only Facebook Group – join fellow PATTA members in our members only group. Share best practice, get help with your problems, get and give support and gain knowledge in a safe and exclusive environment with like minded PAT testers.

Professional Logo – Prove to potential clients and potential staff members that your business has standards by displaying the PATTA Logo.

Member Directory – List your business on our find a PAT Tester page so you can be sure that when potential clients are searching for the best in your area, they can find you.

Regional Networking Events – join fellow PAT testers in your local area.

Annual National Meet up – National event every September where members from all over the UK can come together to get to know each other. Often mixed with a training session for an industry leader – our 2023 event included training on British Standards from Gambica’s Jim Wallace.

Face to face Masterclasses – such as March 2024’s session on Equipment Testing in Events and the Requirements of BS7909 presented by the Code of Practice author, James Eade.
