A 2391 qualification is currently required in order to gain your JIB grading as an approved electrician. There are initial (2391-50) and periodic (2391-51) qualifications available but you can save time and money with our combined 2391-52 course. The course has been introduced to streamline and simplify the qualifications required to carry our advanced inspection and testing.
You must be over 18 and be up to date with industry requirements. This course is intended to be taught to experienced electrical installers who have previous training and experience of inspection and testing. Essentially you should be working in the electrical industry and involved with the inspection and testing process before taking this advanced course. It is also useful for you to have an understanding of 3 phase systems.
If you have limited experience, you may wish to consider taking the Level 2 Fundamental Inspection and Testing qualification 2392. This course is designed to be taught for those who already know the fundamentals of inspection and testing but need to progress their skills. It is essential you have a good up to date understanding of BS 7671: IET Wiring Regs and up to date 18th edition course is recommended.
There is no practical training, as such we strongly recommend you have 6 months testing experience before taking this course:
The course will cover the specific methods of inspecting and testing all types of installations, whether single or three-phase, to the current requirements of BS 7671. It covers the inspection and testing techniques as given in IET Guidance Note 3 and how to professionally complete Certification and Reports.
The first 2 days of eLearning are particularly useful not only for the course but after you have finished as the eLearning is mobile friendly and with unlimited access you can use the content again and again should you need to refresh a particular test. This eLearning module has been designed to refresh your knowledge of the inspection and testing process for single and three phase installations, ensuring you are fully prepared for your lessons.
The course is 6.5 days with the majority of training taking place in week one. Some assessment can be booked for the following week. The course will be structured as follows:

Entry to this qualification requires you to have ‘experience and knowledge of inspection and testing.’ It is useful for you to have taken the entry level City & Guilds 2392 Level 2, if you’re new to testing and inspection. Not mandatory, but certainly useful. It is ideally suited to those who have completed an NVQ or Level 3 diploma which would have covered fundamental inspection and testing. We also recommend you have industry experience as the course is taught at a higher level than most and draws on real world experience. An understanding of 3 phase is highly recommended.
The course gives you the confidence to competently carry out Initial Verification and Periodic Inspection and Testing. It also gives you the certification needed to become JIB Approved as well as making membership with one of the Industry Certification Schemes an easier process. This course also gives you the knowledge and understanding needed to compile professionally detailed reports on the condition of electrical installations.
Like any assessment, it assesses your ability to do the job. If you can inspect and test and understand why and how, the exams and assessments shouldn’t be too hard. We pride ourselves on our pass rates and we know our training will give you the right knowledge and training needed to pass. It is expected that the new format of the assessments will make it much quicker to gain this qualification.
No the hand written exams have been replaced by a short assignment which is completed during the course. It consists of a few questions which require written answers.
