What career opportunities can this lead to?

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

You must be a qualified Electrician in the electrical installation field and you are required to complete a question sheet referencing prior knowledge or experience to course tutor. You will be required to complete an initial assessment in Maths.
