Course Description

The Total EAL Inspection and Testing Level 3 package.

The EAL Level award has been put together to replace the old City & Guilds 2391 qualification which has now expired. It is an alternative qualification to the City & Guilds 2394 and 2395 courses. All the exams associated with the EAL courses are undertaken before you leave the training centre which is not the case with the City and Guilds courses as you will have to return potentially two months later to sit a written exam.

The objective of this course is to provide you with an understanding of the practices/theory involved in the initial verification and commissioning of electrical installations and will cover both single and three phase systems.

This EAL Combined 4337 and 4338 electrical course is ideal for people with limited experience of initial inspection, testing and verification and/or periodic inspection and testing of electrical installations. If you already work as an Electrician, but have not carried out inspection and testing since qualifying, or you require to update before moving onto other qualifications, then this may be the course for you.

We have chosen to deliver this Level 3 Award in the Initial Verification and Certification over the City and Guilds 2394 as you will be able to complete all of your practical and written/online exams at the end of your 5 day Course.

The objective of the course is to give you a good understanding of the theory/practices required to do both a periodic inspection and initial verification/commissioning of electrical installations. The course will improve both your inspection/testing and periodic skills.
