Who is it for?

Who is it for?

OVERVIEW

This course is intended for anyone who needs to 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. The course if very useful for the following groups:

  • Students who are preparing for AM2 assessment.
  • Corporate CPD for standardisation.
  • Existing electricians who want to refresh their testing knowledge.
  • Existing electricians about to undertake a CPS (competent person scheme) assessment.
  • Students who are preparing for C&G 2391 course and would like to refresh their knowledge of testing. (There are no practical demonstrations in 2391)

Why take this course?

Every electrician has to learn how to inspect and test, however some electricians 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. This course will refresh and improve on your existing knowledge giving you the confidence and skills required when carrying out inspection and testing on Single Phase and Three phase installations. 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. Other reasons to take this course include:

  • eLearning can be done at any time.
  • eLearning can be repeated again and again.
  • eLearning / videos can be referenced in the real world (designed to work on all devices and screen sizes).

How is it structured?

OVERVIEW

Each eLearning unit is individually packaged and can be accessed on most devices (laptop/desktop, tablet, smartphone). The units are open navigation, meaning you can go straight to the part you need without having to fully re-do the unit each time; you can also pick up where you left off!

There is a good mixture of video demonstrations, with our own electrical tutor, Andy Summers, infographics and voice overs. It’s like having a tutor guiding you through each section. There is also a short knowledge check at the end of each unit.

Each individual unit is broken down into individual lessons including:

  • Video introduction with Andy.
  • Theory covering the procedure, showing you how to set your meter, what the test is for and what you should be looking for.
  • Video demonstrations showing you the entire procedure for single and three phase installations. (where applicable)
  • Recording and verifying your results.
  • Scientific principles, to help you better understand the test.
  • Knowledge check, around 10 questions for each unit, with feedback.
OVERALL

Once you have completed all units there are 2 x 50 question quizzes, with feedback at the end to really test your understanding.

That’s around 190 questions, with feedback, in the whole package!

Course Content

MODULE LIST

10 individual eLearning modules covering single and three phase testing including:

1. Continuity of circuit protective conductors (including main and supplementary bonding) (SP/TP)
2. Continuity of ring final circuit conductors (SP)
3. Insulation resistance (SP/TP)
4. Earth electrode resistance (including theory on test method E1, E2, E3 and practical demonstration on test method E1 – Fall of potential method.)
