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.

All candidates must be over 18 years old.

Note! For the 2395 element you need to know your 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.
