Getting your school safe: you need the highest standards.

We strictly follow the Australia/New Zealand Standard 3760:2010. It's the 42 page document which lays out the specifications for proper electronic testing. Our experienced engineers have a process to make sure your electricals are compliant to the 3760:2010 standard — so your school is safe.

If any piece of equipment fails our rigorous examination, it'll be immediately tagged and flagged - to make sure no risk is spread.

Keeping your school safe:
Our 5 Step Process

We've developed a stringent 5 step process which all our engineers follow - to make sure your school's electronics are reliable. We will only certify an electronic item once it's gone through each stage of the process.

  1. Check & Inspect

We make sure there are no obvious faults with the equipment. This helps flags potentially hazardous problems early on.

Deep Test

Putting each item through thorough testing in our mobile state-of-the-art test station to validate and ensure safety


Equipment which passes our tests will be physically labelled with the details required by law. If equipment fails any test, it'll be immediately marked with a hazard warning tag - and we'll take a photo which will be provided in the concise report

Data Transfer & Record Keeping

We'll securely upload your data to our central computer database. This gives you the peace of mind of having an off-site copy of all your electronic testing reports - so you're going beyond your legal obligations.


We'll give you a precise report into the state of each item for your records. You'll get specific test details for each item, along with descriptions, timestamps, locations, test results and next test dates - meaning you'll have an exact record of each electronic item under your control. Finally, we'll provide you a framed certificate of AS 3760 compliance.
