C&G 2395-10 – Periodic Inspection and Testing course
The City & Guilds 2395 is one of two qualifications which together have replaced the old 2391 qualification (the other qualification is the 2394). The 2395 covers the principles, practices and legislation for periodic inspection and testing of electrical installations.
This theory course is delivered over four days and, like many training providers, we have combined the content for the 2394 and 2395 to create one course.
To achieve both qualifications you will need to undertake additional assessments so with us you can choose to complete either just one or both of the qualifications. For delegates who want to have their testing qualifications added to their JIB cards, it’s important to note that the 2394 and 2395 cannot be added as a standalone qualifications – you would need to achieve both.
The course is entirely theory-based. However, if you need to brush up on your practical testing skills before taking the 2395 practical assessment, we do offer a separate practical training day.
- Requirements of 17th Edition Wiring Regulations for inspection, testing and certification. - Requirements for periodic inspection - Requirements for inspecting electrical installations after they have been in service - Requirements for the safe testing and commissioning of electrical installations - Requirements for testing before circuits are energised - Requirements for testing energised installations - Requirements for the completion of electrical installation condition reports and associated documentation
- Using Guidance Note 3 - Safe isolation of electrical circuits and installations - Safety of systems and equipment prior to completion of inspection, testing and commissioning - Use of test instruments - Mock exam questions - Upcoming dates
4 days plus a 4-hour practical assessment and 1½ hour written examination.
What’s essential is that delegates have a good working knowledge of the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations before attending the 2394/2395 theory course. You should also be advised that it’s an advanced course and we wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who’s new to the industry and hasn’t really had any testing experience.
There is an online multiple choice exam, a written exam and a 4 hour practical assessment. Written exams and practical assessments are not included during the 4-day course so need to be attended separately.
