Why take this 2395 inspection and testing course?

This is the latest most up to date inspection and testing course from City & Guilds. Following this new 2395 course you will be able to inspect and test a range of installations in both domestic and commercial settings and most importantly this will allow you test and inspect existing installations carried out by other domestic installers or electricians.

Even for an experienced electrician Inspection and Testing can be a difficult subject, however on the City and Guilds 2395 Inspection and testing course we will ensure the subject is demystified giving you the best chance of gaining the latest qualification to demonstrate your competency.

As a specialist electrical training company we have many years solid experience in delivering a range of City & Guilds electrical courses

This is an essential skill for any electrical installer.

The course content is the same as these courses:

The C&G 2394 & 2395 courses share so much content that we simply run them as one course. The only difference with this 2395 qualification is that you will only take the assessments for the 2395 course. You can then at a later stage simply pay and book your C&G 2394 assessments should you wish however usually most people will have completed their C&G 2394 qualification before the C&G 2395. .

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.
