Gain a Recognised Qualification

The City & Guilds are internationally recognised and offer some of the best and most popular courses.  The 2391-51 is the most current inspection and testing course available.  Holders of the certificate will be able to test installations in commercial and domestic settings, even those which have previously been installed by other electricians.

You will need to set aside four days to complete the training for the 2391-51 course. We normally run block courses however a number of our centres now offer a 1 day a week (for 4 weeks) option. All of the content is delivered by fully qualified inspectors ready to pass on their skills to help you pass the tests which follow at the end of the training.

Assessment and Success

At the end of the four or five days you will need to successfully pass three assessments in order to be awarded with the Inspection & Testing Certificate from the City & Guilds.  The assessments are as follows:

•    One online multiple choice assessment in the Principles, practices and legislation for the initial verification of electrical installations
•    A written assessment in the principles, practices and legislation for the initial verification of electrical installations
•    One practical assignment in the principles, practices and legislation of the initial verification and electrical installations
