Whereas in the past delegates would have had to take the 2394 and the 2395 in order to achieve Awards stating that they could carry out both Initial Verification and Periodic Testing, under the new 2391 qualifications the City & Guilds have developed a ‘Combination Course’ in order that the entire spectrum of inspection and testing is be covered under one qualification.

If a delegate were only going to inspect, test & sign-off new work, they would only need to achieve the 2391-50.

If a delegate were only going to inspect, test & carry out periodic testing, they would only need to achieve the 2391-51.

In reality, most Governing Bodies will require a fully qualified electrician working as a Duty Holder  or a QS when inspecting and testing an installation to have qualifications in both the above areas.

Now, instead of having to take two separate Awards, the 2391-52 will cover this requirement.

This is the most popular of the three qualifications on offer, and in time will no doubt become the industry standard.

As with all the 2391 Format Qualifications, in order to achieve the full qualification delegates will be asked to complete the following three units. The only difference s the scope of the questions they will be asked during the assessments:


On-Line multiple choice exam covering both areas – 60-Question, Open Book

1.5 Hour Written Exam (pre-set by the City & Guilds) covering both areas

Practical Assessment (2Hours) including Initial Verification & Periodic Testing
