C&G 2391-52 Course Suitability
Who is the qualification for?
It is aimed at practising electricians who have not carried out inspection and testing since qualifying or who require some update of training before going onto other City & Guilds qualifications.
The qualification is also suitable for those with limited experience of initial inspection and periodic inspection of electrical installations, such as those entering the industry from other engineering disciplines or who have been working in allied trades.
What does the qualification cover?
This qualification prepares candidates for the initial verification and periodic inspection of electrical installation work.
How much experience do I need in Inspection and testing as an entry requirement?
This exam process is very difficult. You must have good levels of knowledge of inspection and testing prior to signing up for the course. You must also put into practice the knowledge gained whilst doing the 6-month course. Learners struggle in the practical assessment due to time constraints. The more practice you have at the testing process, alongside the course, the better chance you have of passing it first time.
City & Guilds cannot accept any registrations for learners under 18 as these qualifications are not approved for learners under 18.
