Training for Community Repairers

White Goods Training Course

Opportunity for a 2 Week Certified Training Course to become a Community Repairer. EEESafe Domestic Appliance Technician (DATc).  Please note that there are Pre-requisites to becoming certified, as it is not safe to believe that someone can have sufficient knowledge in a short time.

You can Dowload the EEESafe DATc Course Schedule and this course is also a pre-requisite to becoming a Registered EEESafe Training Centre.

We are due to announce a new Training Centre in Southern England where once Training The Trainer (TTT) program is completed, will be delivering DATc Training in that region.  Already this means thousands of Appliances prevented from Waste, will be repaired to the EEESafe Standard and available to buy online, complete with Labels and our NASR leaflets in every appliance.  It is intended that the goods will eventually only be sold to Registered DATs (Domestic Appliance Technicians) or DARs. Domestic Appliance Refurbishers.

We have a further 12 Centres in the Pipeline for England and looking for others throughout the UK. For more info  Contact Us

Help make better product designs

Using our PlanetERP product, we are preparing to engage the Trade, Reusers and Consumers in safely retrieving parts to encourage more repair and reuse at a local level.  Here’s one example of the problem, and what we plan to address.

We are currently building a Design Module for PlanetERP.  Through this platform, we envision registered repairers and refurbishers, recording bad design on live repairs of different makes and models.  We will soon be looking for partners to engage in this project.  A short video  can be seen at the site here.

PAT Testing for Waste Prevention

Following EEESafe Training Protocols, EEESafe DAT’s (Community Repairers) could PAT Test repaired items in the home before they are sold on the Hub’s Shop or Classified Ads. PAT Test Certificates can be supplied with Advertised Goods.  All things are possible, but anyone PAT Testing and using our Labels, needs to have an evidenced based assessment of their PAT Qualification.  You wouldn’t use someone working in an office, who PAT tests the companies IT equipment, to test a Large Domestic Appliance!

WHY? Because PAT Testing itself with Function Testing does NOT mean an item is safe to use in a Home Environment. Read our Article for more details.
