Course Information for Students

The new Testing and Inspection City & Guilds 2391-52 Combined Course qualification replaces and improves on the former 2394/2395 course that was previously available to electricians but has since been withdrawn.

This course is aimed at students possessing knowledge of the wiring regulations but who have minimal knowledge of inspection and testing.

We strongly recommend that you achieve City & Guilds 2382 before embarking on this course, though this is NOT a formal entry requirement.

An interview will be required before you commence this course to establish what qualifications and experience you hold so that a decision can be made on whether the course is right for you.

In order to claim the full City & Guilds 2391-52 qualification, students must successfully complete the following:

  • A two-hour online multiple choice exam (open book)
  • A practical assessment which lasts four hours and 20 minutes

Assessment  – 2391-52

  • Task A – Visual Inspection – 30 minutes
  • Task B – Periodic Inspection and Test – two hours and 30 minutes
  • Task C – Short Answer Questions – one hour and 20 minutes

Candidates will be expected to supply:

  • Own copy of IET Guidance Note 3 (Inspection and Testing)
  • Own copy of IET 18th Edition On-Site Guide

Safety boots will also be required when you are undertaking the practical revision and assessment.
