Due to the safety implications of working with electricity and the guided learning hours associated with this qualification, you must have a Level 3 electrotechnical qualification demonstrating competency associated with working in the electrical installations. You must also have a working knowledge of both three-phase and single-phase electrical supplies and equipment.
Units on this course include:
- Understand the requirements for inspection and testing of electrical installations
- Understand safety management procedures when undertaking inspection and testing of electrical installations
- Understand the requirements for the inspection of electrical installations
- Understand the requirements for testing electrical installations
- Perform inspection and testing of electrical installations
What Is Involved In Studying This Course?
This qualification delivers the specialist knowledge and skills you need, including appropriate legislation, inspection and testing techniques, completing and issuing certificates or reports and understanding of results and measurements.
There are three options learners can take depending on their individual industry requirements, level of experience or prior knowledge. Candidates can choose to learn the skills involved in Inspection and Testing in stages or as a combined assessment. The options are:
2391-50 Initial Verification: Intended for learners who wish to verify new installations and perhaps never need to carry out Periodic Inspection and Testing.
2391-51 Periodic Inspection: Intended for learners who have previously gained qualifications in Initial Verification, perhaps through a recognised apprenticeship and wish to expand their skills to include reporting on the condition of existing electrical installations.
2391-52 Combined Initial Verification and Periodic Inspection and Testing: Intended for experienced electricians who have never gained formal qualifications in inspection and testing or who may wish to update and reaffirm their skills.
Assessment will be through a multiple-choice on-line test and a practical task.
Not applicable – The College cannot provide any work experience routes for this qualification (please see entry requirements).
Upon completion of this course, you can progress onto the following qualification:
C&G 2346-03 Electrotechnical Experienced Workers Qualification.
This qualification is designed for experienced electricians with more than five years’ experience who hold a technical certificate (such as C&G2330 or 2365 Level 3) and work towards gaining a JIB Gold Card.
What careers can this course lead to?
This qualification is intended for practicing electricians who want to expand their skills and knowledge in the area of Initial Verification and/or Periodic Inspection and continue their professional development.
On successful completion learners can also progress on to the City & Guilds Level 4 Award in the Design and Verification of Electrical Installations.
