Part Time


Course Overview

C&G2391-52 Level 3 Award in Initial and Periodic Inspection and Testing of Electrical Installations

 

Who is the qualification for?

 

It is aimed at practising electricians who have not carried out inspection and testing since qualifying or who require some update of training before going onto other City & Guilds qualifications.

 

Why take this 2391 Course

The course has been introduced to streamline and simplify the qualifications required to carry our advanced inspection and testing.

 

In addition to inspecting, testing and certificating you own you, if you are looking to be able to inspect and test other peoples installation work or carry out regular condition reporting on existing installations this is the qualification for you, although it is strongly recommended that you have a sound working knowledge of electrical installations, systems and equipment to be able to carry out the periodic inspection and testing in the specific installations types for are inspecting.
