This course has been re-introduced to align all industry qualifications for inspection and testing wiring systems to BS 7671. It replaces C&G 2394 & 2395. This C&G 2391-52 course is aimed at practicing electricians who wish to gain qualifications in both initial verification and periodic inspection and testing.

The course will cover the specific methods of inspecting and testing all types of installations, combing a mix of both theory and practical sessions covering single and three-phase installations, to the current requirements of BS 7671. It covers the inspection and testing techniques as given in IET Guidance Note 3 and how to professionally complete Certification and Reports.

Key areas covered include:

  1. Safe isolation of electrical circuits and installations
