CITY & GUILDS 2391

INITIAL VERIFICATION and PERIODIC INSPECTION & TESTING

This course covers the specific methods of inspecting and testing all types of installations, whether single or three-phase, to the current requirements of BS 7671, including inspection and testing techniques as given in the IET Guidance Note 3 and how to professionally complete Certification and Reports.

The 2391-52 course is aimed at practicing electricians who wish to gain qualifications in periodic inspection and testing as well as initial verification of new systems.  

You must be over 18 and up to date with industry requirements. You should be working in the electrical industry and involved with the inspection and testing process.  It is recommended that you already possess the 2382 18th edition qualification, but this is not a City & Guilds requirement.

A 2391 qualification is currently required to gain your JIB grading as an approved electrician.

Essential publications:  18th edition copies of IET BS 7671 Wiring Regulations (£95), IET Guidance Note 3 (£35) and IET On-Side Guide (£30), all three are available from us and can be purchased for £140.  These publications will be used as course material and are permitted within the exam.

The 2391-50 and 2391-51 qualifications are available individually, but you can save time and money by attending the combined 2391-52 course.


Costs:
2391-52 Combined course:  £900.00 + VAT (6 days)
2391-51 Periodic Inspection & Testing only :  £895.00 + VAT (6 days)
