Why take the City & Guilds 2394 / 2395 Course Package?


These two testing and inspection qualifications (recommended to be taken together) replaced and improved on the original 2391 that was previously withdrawn. 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.’

Course overview

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.
