This is an advanced course and only suitable for experienced electricians with previous testing experience.

Delegates should have ideally completed the City & Guilds 2392–10 qualification beforehand however it is essential that candidates have previously passed the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations course and are able to provide a copy of their certificate before enrolling on the 2394-01 & 2395-01 course.



17th Edition Wiring Regulations, 3rd Amendment

On-Site Guide

Guidance Note 3

City & Guilds 2394-2395 new 502 online assessment FAQ’S


The City & Guilds 2394 & 2395 have together replaced the old 2391 qualification. The 2394 covers the principles, practices and legislation for the initial verification of electrical installations and the 2395 covers the principles, practices and legislation for periodic inspection and testing of electrical installations. 

This theory course is delivered over five days and, like many training providers, we have combined the content for the 2394 and 2395 to create one course. Most of our delegates choose to study towards both the 2394 and 2395 at the same time however you can choose to complete either just one or both qualifications. 

For delegates who want to have their testing qualifications added to their JIB cards, it’s important to note that the 2394 and 2395 cannot be added as stand alone qualifications – you would need to achieve both. 

The course is entirely theory-based. However, if you need to brush up on your practical testing skills before taking the practical assessment, we do offer a separate practical refresher day.
