** Plus 2 days worth of assessments. This electrical course package covers training on inspection & testing as well as periodic inspection and testing. As an advanced electricians course it is ideal for experienced installers especially those looking to gain JIB grading as an approved electrician.
These two testing and inspection qualifications (recommended to be taken together) replace and improve on the former 2391 that was previously available to electricians but has since been withdrawn.
2394 is a level 3 qualification to train you in initial verification and certification of installations, including 3 phase.
2395 is a level 3 qualification to train you the in ‘Principles, practices and legislation for the periodic inspection, testing and condition reporting of electrical installations.’
** Please note that we are currently phasing out the pre-registered hand written exams. Please see the course dates and assessments sections below for more information. From November 2016 you will take an online short answer exam with this course instead of a hand written one. This mean there is no early pre-registration date for courses from November.**
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! 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.
