This industry qualification is essential for the electrical installer who wishes to enter the sector of commercial electrical installations.
Both the written and practical aspect of the C&G 2391 are complex and therefore this course is suited to those of you with current practical experience of inspection and testing of low voltage electrical installations and who require to become certified.
This training course is not suitable for beginners, it is aimed at practising electricians who have carried out initial verifications on electrical installations and require further training in periodic inspection, testing and reporting.
In addition to relevant practical experience, delegates must possess a good working knowledge of the technical requirements of BS 7671 to City & Guilds certificate standard or equivalent.
Those with less experience must take the three day City & Guilds 2382 BS7671: 2008 Workshop first and in addition, we do recommend that you consider undertaking C&G 2392 Level 2 Certificate in Fundamental Inspection, Testing and Initial Verification or for those of you who only require some basic refresher training, Able Skills 2 day Inspection & Testing course.
If you are a qualified Electrician (C&G 2360/2330/2356 or equivalent) and you are seeking JIB Approved Electrician status then C&G 2391 is a requirement to achieve this.
This four day training course covers the requirements of BS 7671 for inspection, testing and certification and is designed to prepare candidates for both the written and practical examinations.
Candidates gain the skills and knowledge necessary to actually perform the inspection and testing procedures and are able to practice on purpose-built training rigs which simulate electrical installations.
As this course is aimed at qualified Electricians who have some experience of testing, the course is predominantly theory based and will cover:
• Introduction to Inspection & Testing
• Requirements of 17th Edition Wiring Regulations for inspection, testing and certification
• Using Guidance Note 3
• Compliance with relevant legislation
• Determine suitability of installations
• Order of tests

• Test result verification
• Continuity of protective conductors
• Insulation resistance tests
• Polarity and Earth electrode tests
• Earth fault loop impedance tests
• RCD tests
• Rarely used tests & IP ratings
• Exam Preparation
The exam dates for this qualification are set by City & Guilds and we aim to provide this training to you as close to the exam date as is possible. Following this training course, you will undertake a written exam on a pre-designated date (2.5 hours and closed book) and this exam is externally marked.
Able Skills will be notified of your results (pass or fail) within 42 working days and if you are successful, we will arrange for you to return to Able Skills to undertake the second aspect of this award which is a 4 hour practical assessment.
Subject to availability of our Assessors and if preferred by the candidate, we can arrange for the practical aspect of this qualification to be completed before the written results are determined however, the full certificate for this qualification cannot be awarded until both aspects of this award have been completed successfully.
This qualification will not provide unit accreditation if you are successful in only one exam/assessment.
Candidates are provided with course notes to guide them. We also recommend that you obtain a copy of:
• IEE Wiring Regulations 17th Edition
• IEE Onsite Guide
• Guidance Note 3 Inspection & Testing
In addition, City & Guilds can provide details of The Chief Examiners’ Report. This has been introduced as a result of feedback from centres, to give them guidance in preparing candidates for the written examination but this may also be of use to those of you who have previously sat and been unsuccessful in the written aspect of this qualification.
