'The PB500 has proved to be very user friendly and simple to use. It is good that it is portable and light and does not take long to set up. A valuable asset to our business. We would highly recommend Parker Bell for the PAT testing training course. It was a very enjoyable day and the trainer provided a friendly atmosphere as well as clear tuition so that we were able to gain confidence and adequate knowledge. There was plenty of time for questions and discussion, the small group worked particularly well.'

Thank you for a very interesting and informative day yesterday. All attendees had different backgrounds but worked well together. You created a comfortable atmosphere throughout the day which made it enjoyable.

Thank you for all your kindness assistance and training on the PAT Testing course. It was an informal and relaxing atmosphere enabling each to interact and share much, in addition to having the time which was ample to physically contact the PAT Testing itself. From my perspective a most thoroughly enjoyable day. One where I learned much about PAT Testing.
