My apologies I was thinking of AppleCare. The Apple Hardware Test is on the
original Mac OS X disc(s) that came with his Mac. He just has to pop the
fist disc in to the machine and press the option key whilst booting and then
select Apple Hardware Test from the menu.

The AppleCare programs gives you a disc with a more advanced diagnostics
program called TechTools Delux which he can borrow.
