Several City & Guilds (C&G) training courses are being redeveloped to reflect changes to the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations and in order to bring them in line with the QCF (Qualification and Credit Framework).
Logic4training courses affected by these changes include C&G 2391-10: Inspection, testing and certification of electrical installations (level 3), which is being split into two distinct qualifications: 2394 and 2395.
C&G 2394: Initial verification of electrical installations (level 3) – This qualification will deal with electrical installation and minor works certificates.
C&G 2395: Periodic inspection, testing and reporting of electrical installations (level 3) – This qualification will focus on Periodic Inspection Reports.
It is anticipated that the achievement of the two level 3 qualifications (2394 and 2395) will effectively demonstrate a level of technical knowledge and understanding relevant to the requirements of a Qualified Supervisor (QS).
The reason 2391-10 has been split into two is to make each course more obtainable and relevant to the different roles within the electrical industry. Currently, on a national basis, about 60% of students fail the 2391-10 on their first go – usually the written exam.
The downside for candidates is that two courses = more time off work and more fees.
Get trained before the deadline! Certification for 2391 ceased in December 2013, with the last exams likely to be available until mid-summer of 2014, answered to the 2011 (green book) version of the regulations.
