C & G 2394-01 Inspection and Testing


The City and Guilds 2394-01 level 3 award in the Initial Verification of Electrical Installations is aimed at practising electricians who have not carried out inspection and testing since qualifying or who require some update of training before going on to other City and Guilds qualifications. The qualification is also suitable for those with limited experience of initial inspection of electrical installations, such as those entering the industry from other engineering disciplines. Although not mandatory, it is an advantage to already hold the City and Guilds 2382-12 '17th Edition' qualification.


To achieve the City and Guilds 2394-01 Inspection and Testing qualification.


Presentations and discussion sessions will be mixed with practical work and worked examples to ensure candidates have both the underpinning knowledge and practical skills needed.

The assessment comprises three compulsory units testing the principles, practices and legislation for the initiial verification of electrical installations by different means:

Unit 301 - This is an e-volve, multiple choice question paper.

Unit 302 - This is a City and Guilds set written test which can only be taken on certain dates. To check the date which relates to your chosen course please contact our office.

Unit 303 - This is a practical assignment assessed by the tutor.

The course will be held two weeks before the module 302 test so that delegates can complete all the elements except this one and then return on the Wednesday evening.

It is essential that anyone attending the one week course can also return on the scheduled Wednesday evening for the written paper. You cannot complete the qualification without this.

The cost of the extra Wednesday evening assessment is included in the cost of the overall course but Practical Refrigeration Training Centre cannot accept any liability for any additional costs incurred by candidates because they have to return for this test.


The course will include the following elements:

Introduction to Inspection and Testing

Testing Equipment
