Course Description:

Course Introduction - C&G 2394

All domestic installers and electricians looking to improve their skill range can benefit from partaking in the City & Guilds 2394 Initial Verification Course.  You’ll gain a professional qualification which will allow you to safely and efficiently perform inspections and verifications on new installations, including 3 phase installations. This course is viewed as the 'stepping stone' to the 2395 (or the 2391 as it was formerly known).

The course teaches legislation and the principles and practices for the verification of electrical installations.  You will learn all the necessary information required for installations including testing, commissioning and certification.  The topics of the course are:

- How to safely isolate circuits and installations
- What the requirements are for initial verifications
- The requirements for the inspections of installations before they are put into service
- Safe testing and commissioning requirements
- Tests required before energising circuits
- Testing energised installation requirements
- Completing electrical installation certificates and the associated documentation
- Safe working systems for inspection, testing and commissioning before completion
- Inspections
- How to commission electro technical equipment and systems

In addition to the above skills there is a strong focus on health and safety and all the relevant documentation you will use is also covered.  You will also learn about the correct procedures required when working with clients.

Who is the City and Guilds 2394 Course Aimed Towards?

The City & Guilds 2394 is designed for candidates that have some experiences working with electrical installations, and knowledge of electrical science. The ideal candidates are contractors already working within the industry that require the skills and qualifications which will allow them to adequately test and inspect installations and perform initial verification and certification.

We advise that students with limited knowledge of testing attend the City & Guilds 2394 before attempting the City & Guilds 2395.

Gain a Recognised City and Guilds 2394 Qualification

Employers within the trade respect City & Guilds qualifications, which are formally recognised all over the UK and internationally.  With this welcomed addition to your CV you’ll be able to verify, test and perform inspections on electrical installations.


There are three assessments which are as follows:

1.    An online multiple choice assessment testing the Principles, practices and legislation for initial verification
2.    A written assessment on the Principles, practices and legislation of initial verification
3.    A practical assignment of Principles, practices and legislation of initial verification

These City and Guilds 2394 courses are tutor led and held at various training centres up and down the UK

Please note – The exam date for this course may be different to the course date as scheduled by City & Guilds. The tutor on the course will arrange this with you if it has not already been done.
