Why do I need to do the Initial and Periodic Inspection & Testing training course?

Initial and Periodic Inspection and Testing of Electrical Installations (2391-52)

If you are a practicing electrician who wishes to carry out the inspection and testing of electrical installations then it is important that you have completed the appropriate training to ensure you have the required knowledge and skills to fulfil the role and comply with the current
BS 76:71:2018 standards.

By completing and passing the Initial and Periodic Inspection and Testing of Electrical Installations (2391-52) course you will be able to show employers/contractors that you are able to carry out the testing and inspection of new electrical systems safely and correctly.

A 2391 qualification is also required in order for you to gain your JIB Gold Card to show you are an approved electrician, a must have for many employers. 

Adding this advanced skill can set you apart from others working in the industry and can open up further work opportunities and higher salary brackets. Some employers are paying £40,000 – £50,000 for qualified periodic inspection electricians.

Until July 2017 most people would take a combined 2394/2395 course to gain this qualification which required 1 online exam, 2 practical assessments and 2 written exams. This new qualification has made it much easier for people to achieve with only 1 online multiple choice exam, 1 written assignment and 1 practical assessment.

More about the 2391-52

This is a 5.5 day course and is intended to be taught to experienced electrical installers who are working in the electrical industry and involved with the inspection and testing process. It is also useful for you to have an understanding of 3 phase systems. 

It is essential that you have a good up to date understanding of
BS 7671:2018 IET Wiring Regs, completion of the 18th edition course is recommended.

If you have limited experience, you may wish to consider taking the Level 2 Fundamental Inspection and Testing qualification 2392.
