About this course

This course has been re-introduced to align all industry qualifications for inspection and testing wiring systems to BS 7671. It now replaces the C&G 2394/95 combined course package. This C&G 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.

Who this course is for

Worth Knowing: A 2391 qualification is currently required in order to gain your JIB grading as an approved electrician. The course has been introduced to streamline and simplify the qualifications required to carry our advanced inspection and testing. Until July 2017 most people would take a combined 2394/2395 course which required 1 online exam, 2 practical assessments and 2 written exams. This new qualification only requires 1 online multiple-choice exam, 1 written assignment and 1 practical assessment.


Courses are available at training centres nationwide. This course can also be delivered on your premises subject to minimum delegate numbers and suitability of the venue. Please contact us for information.


You will be assessed in the following ways:

  • 2 hour online open book exam.
  • Short assignment completed whilst on the course (Roughly 1.2 Hours).
  • 2.5 hour practical assessment usually completed on week 2.

    The online exam and written assignment will take place on the Monday after your main course. The practical assessments will usually take place in the second week. We can confirm the specific time for you over the phone if you wish or if you book online, we will call you back to confirm the specific day.
