Being a specialist electrical training centre Trade Skills 4U staff have become very familiar with a range of electrical qualifications. In fact we probably know them better than anyone else out there.

We are soon to say goodbye to an old friend the City & Guilds 2391-10 Periodic Inspection & Testing Course. It is one of the most highly regards qualifications in the industry and allows successful candidates to carry out period inspection & testing.

The 2391-10 was first introduced back in February 2008. Since then it has been regarded as one of the most difficult qualifications to gain in the industry and indicative of an electrician or contractor at the top of their game. Nationally the qualification has a pass rate of around 32%, however we are very proud to have achieved a pass rate above 80% on our last course and consistently perform way above the national average.

The 2391-10 has been reworked by City & Guilds and replaced by 2 qualifications:

City & Guilds 2394 Initial Verification Course

City & Guilds 2395 Periodic Inspection & Testing Course

Officially the above courses replace the 2391-10 however in reality it is actually the 2395 which is a direct replacement, covering periodic inspection & testing. Here at Trade Skills 4U we view the City & Guilds 2394 as a replacement for the 2392 but with three phase thrown in.

One thing about the new qualifications is that they actually share a unit and exam. As such we will be shortly launching a course package covering both the 2394 and 2395. This will save candidates both time and money.

Our final 2391-10 courses will run on the 30th July and are fully booked. However for those who have previously taken the 2391-10 but not yet passed their qualifications we can still register you for an exam and there are 3 exams dates left this year. However the final registration dates for these will be the 31st July so if you are interested please contact us on 01293 529777 today for more info.

If you have missed out on this qualification, don’t worry simply book onto the 2395 instead. We already have course dates available.

So whilst we say goodbye to an old friend we also say hello to two new qualifications.
