City and Guilds 2394 is essentially aimed at practicing electricians who have not yet carried out any extensive inspection and testing since obtaining the 17th edition or perhaps since qualifying; or who require some update of their training before going on to other City & Guilds qualifications.
The qualification is also suitable for those with limited experience of initial verification and the inspection of electrical installations, and who have knowldge of electrical systems.
Although the course is principally designed for those who are already involved in the electrical industry, we suggest that those who are considering entering the industry, particularly from other engineering disciplines or who have been working in allied trades may find the course beneficial.

All potential delegates wishing to undertake City and Guilds 2394 should be aware that there is no "hands on" training.
We recommenced that if you need training specifically on electrical testing, or you need some refresher training on testing, that you book a place on our ever popular City and Guilds 2392-10 course or speak to us directly by calling us on 0800 170 7007.
All City and Guilds 2394-01 written examinations are known as "dated entry" examinations. This means that there are a limited number of specific dates that City and Guilds releases throughout the year, when City and Guilds 2394-01 written examinations can take place. We do advise delegates who book a City and Guilds 2394 course, to check with us when the examination will take place - please be aware that after a certain "cut off" period, which is normally 6 weeks prior to the date of the actual examination, that delegates will be subject to a "late entry examination fee".
All written examination papers are marked by an appointed City and Guilds examiner, with results not normally available for around 8 to 10 weeks - any delays in marking written examination papers is generally outside of our control, however, we will advise you of your result by post and/or e mail as soon as we have been notified.
This course leads to a fully accredited level 3 qualification. At the moment, City and Guilds are only releasing a maximum of 5 examinations dates during 2012, however, this is subject to change at short notice.
Please note that the written examination is a "closed book" examination.
Delegates are required to have 1 copy of the following:
The 17th Edition of the Wiring Regulations BS7671:2008
