A 2391 qualification is currently required in order to gain your JIB grading as an approved electrician. There are individual Level 3 awards: (2391-50) Initial Verification and (2391-51) Periodic Inspection qualifications available but you can save time and money with our combined 2391-52 course. The course has been introduced to streamline and simplify the qualifications required to carry out advanced inspection and testing. Until July 2017 most people would take a combined 2394/2395 course which required 1 closed book multiple choice online exam, 2 closed book written/online exams and 4 associated assessments and 2 practical assessments. This new qualification only requires 1 online multiple-choice exam, 1 written assignment, 1 associated assignment and 1 combined practical assessment.
6.5 Days – Monday to Friday 8:30 to 16:30 week 1 & Monday 8:30 to 16:30 week 2. The additional ½ day attendance will be required for the combined practical assessments.
The course and qualification is based on the current “IET Guidance Note 3 - Inspecting & Testing” (GN3) to verify compliance with the current “Requirements for Electrical Installations - IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition – BS 7671”
The course is aimed at practicing electricians who have not carried out initial verification or periodic inspection, testing and fault diagnosis since qualifying who require an update and enhancement of knowledge, skills; as well as progression route to other City & Guilds qualifications. This qualification is also suitable for those with limited experience of initial verification and periodic inspection and testing and fault diagnosis and for those entering the industry from allied trades.
There will be a 2 hour multiple-choice online open book exam, a written assignment, an associated visual assessment and a half day combined Practical Assessment.
You must be up to date with industry requirements. Ideally you should be working in the electrical industry and involved with the inspection and testing process. This course is designed for those who already know the fundamentals of inspection and testing but need to progress their skills.
Delegates must have the potential to achieve and are expected to have a working knowledge and understanding of electrical principles, wiring systems and be conversant with current electrical installation practice. It is not mandatory but it is recommended that delegates have achieved a City & Guilds 2382 qualification covering “Requirements for Electrical Installations - IET Wiring Regulations 17th Edition - BS 7671”, or have a working knowledge of the requirements. An additional preparation course or home study may be taken prior to commencement to gain essential underpinning knowledge. Candidates must be over 18 years old.
