Entry Requirements

Entry to both these qualifications require 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. Please note there are no practical elements on this course so you must already have practical experience of inspection and testing.

The 2394 / 2395 course package is intended for people working in the electrical industry who have existing knowledge of inspection and testing but who need to complete the formal qualifications and refresh and/or upgrade their skills in initial verification, certification, periodic inspection & testing of electrical installations. All candidates must be over 18 years old.

Note! It is essential you have a good working knowledge of the 17th edition wiring regs.

Worth knowing. The 2394 & 2395 qualifications are currently required in order to gain your JIB grading as an approved electrician, so save time and money with our combined course.

Entry to both these qualifications require 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.

What does this package allow me to do?

This course package allows you to carry out periodic testing, condition reports and testing on existing installations.

Is it difficult, I have heard the old 2391 was?

This course does have 2 written papers unlike most qualifications however with the 2394 course being introduced since the 2391 was replaced we have seen much higher pass rates this is because there is more practical training on the course.

What do the assessments consist of?

This course does have 2 online short answer exams, 2 practicals and 1 online exam.

Does this course have a written exam?

The hand written exams have recently been phased out and replaced by an online short answer exam. This means you will sit at a PC and type short answers to the questions. Short answer exams are not multiple choice.
