I am a volunteer at a steam museum, a charity run by volunteers and open to the public. We are currently restarting our portable appliance testing after the testing machine developed a fault and the previous volunteer left.

We are mostly professional engineers, many registered, in various disciplines, mostly retired and electrically competent but not electricians. We are purchasing a new machine (Seaward) as the old one will cost as much to repair and calibrate.

The person who has volunteered to do the testing is an aeronautical engineer by profession and has a good understanding of the theoretical side of PAT testing, e.g. legal requirements, risk analysis, types of equipment, types of testing, record keeping requirements, etc. However the regulations state that the person doing the testing should be "competent".

Can anyone advise as to what we would need to show if there was a need to demonstrate "competence"?
