Course overview

Who is it for?

This course is intended for anyone who needs to practice or improve their inspection and testing skills before taking an advanced inspection and testing course or assessment. This course is not an introduction to inspection and testing. For that you will require our C&G 2392 course or cover it as part of your Level 3 diploma.

Why take this course?

Every electrician has to learn how to inspect and test, however some sparkies find that they haven't used this skill for some time meaning the thought of a practical assessment or advanced inspection and testing course can be daunting. We teach this course to make sure that our customers feel confident and competent when carrying out inspection and testing. It will give you the best chance of understanding the key aspects of the C&G 2391-52 course and the best chance of passing your practical assessments first time.
