WHAT IS TEST AND TAG
Test and Tag is used to check the safety of electrical appliances. This is a safety requirement and testing and tagging equipment should be conducted on a regular basis.

This Test and Tag Training Course is the perfect short course that will give you the opportunity to work with the portable apparatus tester, utilising test results to establish the safety status, identifying safe and unsafe cords and apparatus, applying appropriate tagging, documenting testing activities and handling unplanned events.
This Test and Tag Training Course gives you the real experience of testing & tagging. In this course, you will get real experience in the workshop testing & tagging equipment which actually you are going to test more often.
The Test and Tag Training Course meets the requirements of both the Australian Standards and the WHS Regulations Code of Practice ‘Managing Electrical Risks in the Workplace’ which states inspection and testing of electrical equipment should only be carried out by a competent person who has the relevant knowledge, skills and test instruments to carry out the relevant inspection and testing.
