From July 2017, the City & Guilds 2391 qualification will be re-introduced to the electrical industry. It will be divided into the following:
City & Guilds 2391-50 – Initial Verification. This is intended for learners who wish to verify new installations and perhaps never need to carry out Periodic Inspection & Testing.
City & Guilds 2391-51 – Periodic Inspection. This is intended for learners who have previously gained qualifications in Initial Verification & wish to expand their skills to include reporting on the condition of existing electrical installations.
City & Guilds 2391-52 – Combined Initial Verification & Periodic Inspection & Testing. This course combines both the 2391-50 & 2391-51 qualifications into one training course. It is ideal for electrically experienced learners who have never gained formal qualifications in inspection & testing & wish to update or upgrade their existing skills.
The 2391 qualification was originally the main inspection & testing qualification recognised in the industry. It was then updated to City & Guilds 2394/2395 Combined; both are still 100% valid if you have already obtained them. It will now return as detailed above, replacing City & Guilds 2394/2395.
Technique Learning Solutions will be offering the 2391 qualification in the near future. Further information regarding the qualification can be found on the City & Guilds website.
