What opportunities will this course give me?

Candidates successfully completing the C&G 2391-52 qualifications will be ideally prepared for inspection and testing for the C&G 2396 design and verification of electrical installations qualification.
We strongly recommend that unless a candidate has a proven record and substantial experience in the field of inspection and testing, that they consider to attempt C&G 2391-50 before C&G 2391-51 as a separate course

What will I be learning?

The 2391-52 Level 3 Award in Initial and Periodic Inspection and Testing of Electrical Installations .

The course covers explanations of current legislation, HSAW, EAWR, GS38, selection and use of test equipment, safe isolation procedures and methods of recording test results through the completion of relevant documentation for Initial Verification and Periodic inspection.

This qualification is recognised for those wanting to Inspect, Test and Certificate New Installations and or carry out reports on existing Electrical Installations.

The course requires completion of a closed book online exam, closed book written exam and practical assessments.

The sessions are split to give both theory and practical knowledge, the theory is completed through structured questions designed to encourage the candidate to use BS7671 and GN3 extensively. Whilst every opportunity is given for hands on use of test instruments, it is expected that candidates will have some prior experience. The test scenarios will include work on both single and three phase installations
