  12. 12. Responding to customer demandIn supplying testers, we realised that much of thetraining available was of poor quality with very littleopportunity for delegates to gain practical experience.We responded to this by offering training courses aboutall aspects of Portable Appliance Testing around thecountry. These courses cut through many of the mythssurrounding this and presents common sense, practicalsolutions.To complement these courses, we have producedtraining resources such as books and DVDs.
