This Online Test & Tag Course will teach you how to properly test and tag according to Australian Standards AS/NZS 3760. Our training is the only Nationally Recognised Test & Tag Course in Australia that is solely taught online via a face-to-face virtual classroom.
It uses our state-of-the-art and interactive online training module and is conducted by one of our experienced test and tag trainers. See how our online course process is structured from start to finish.

Our Satisfaction Guarantee: if you are not completely satisfied with our online course at any time, we'll switch you to our face-to-face version free of charge.
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).
Please note that the Australian Standard AS/NZS 3760:2022 changed in 2022 and our training course is now teaching the updated Standard.
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.
Then 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.
It is essential that students have access to their own Portable Appliance Tester to use for the online course.
But don’t worry if you haven’t got your own PAT Tester yet – the team at Appliance Testing Supplies are ready to take you through all the brands and models available on the Australian market, and help you choose a machine that suits your needs.
