What does this course allow me to do ?
This course 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.
