If you want to know how to PAT test a computer monitor you may find these videos helpful; they were made using Seaward 100 and 300 machines, which we used when the videos were recorded. They are home made videos, done using a camera phone.
They were filmed by our engineer when doing a job; we are not a training company
We are not a training company and this article although entitled ‘how to PAT test a computer‘ is not intended to provide training or to educate in how to carry out a portable appliance test on a computer.
We recommend that you arrange for us or another company to carry out PAT testing for you, or you complete a PAT testing training course.
We often get asked the question “how do you PAT Test a Computer Monitor?“
