Important Course Details

    6 days
    We will be running the City and Guilds 2391-52 Inspection and Testing course at our Glasgow (Hamilton), Watford, London and Stockton-On-Tees, Teesside electrical training venues.

There is a very small element of practice, however, no formal practical training will be provided.

You should also have a good understanding of the latest IET Wiring Regulations BS7671 and an up-to-date 18th Edition certificate.

In summary, this course is designed for those who want to progress their testing and inspection skills. Therefore, a good understanding of the fundamentals is essential. It is strongly suggested that you have 2 years experience working with inspection and testing as a practising electrician before taking this course.

If you have no previous training or experience or need a refresher then the City and Guilds 2392-10 Fundamentals and Initial verification (Level 2) course contains both practical and theory and is good practice before progressing to the City & Guilds 2391 level 3 courses.

Please call our training team for more information if you are concerned about your eligibility.

    This course will include a multiple-choice examination (60 questions – 2 hours), a short answer test (1 hour) and a practical test (2 hours)
    During the City and Guilds Inspection and Testing course, you will be working in a classroom environment, within our purpose-built electrical installation training centre.

Our tutors will guide you through all aspects of inspection and testing ranging from basic health and safety to actually performing testing using different types of test equipment. As our groups are kept as small as possible, so you can expect plenty of hands-on tuition from our training team.
