This course offers the specialist knowledge and skills you need, including appropriate legislation, inspection and testing techniques, completing and issuing certificates or reports and understanding of results and measurements.
This level will suit you if you work as an operative within the electrotechnical industry.
There are three options that you can take, depending on your individual industry requirements, level of experience or prior knowledge.
You can choose to learn the skills involved in inspection and testing in stages (2391-50 and 2391-51) or as a combined assessment (2391-52):
2391-50: Initial Verification
Intended for those who wish to verify new installations, who perhaps will never need to carry out periodic inspection and testing.
2391-51: Periodic Inspection
Intended for those who have previously gained qualifications in initial verification, perhaps through a recognised apprenticeship and wish to expand their skills to include reporting on the condition of existing electrical installations.
2391-52: Combined Initial Verification and Periodic Inspection and Testing
Intended for experienced electricians who have never gained formal qualifications in inspection and testing or who may wish to update and reaffirm their skills.
