Apparently we get shown 10 pictures of faults and we have to give them fault codes

Hi, I completed these tests yesterday. I suggest heading to 'Electrical Safety First' website and under 'Professional Resources' look for 'Best Practise Guide 4' This will cover most of what you need. The written exam was not too difficult, but there was one that makes you search the BBB quite hard. As for the pictures - don't over think it... or guess at something you cant see. Good luck

Try to look on C&G site at the assessors write up on failures. It is mostly people failing because they do not answer the question asked or mis read the question. Also seems there is a lot of confusion on earthing/bonding where people go wrong especially earth electrode testing. You need to know which is P1 and so on! Anyway you will see it on the comments from the assessor on C&G

19678662-072E-4C87-BE3E-BB7102EC2D29.jpeg Evening,

Written test. 100% pass mark, not too bad, pinning down the specific ref number probably the hardest bit. Plenty of time to source allowed references.

Visual exercise / photos. Pretty easy, photos weren’t the best quality, and dated equipment in them. Some faults blatant some not so. With the coding C&G tended to be a bit more lenient as such.

Practical. A lot struggled, and failed purely down to the time permitted, two and a half hours. However if your ok with testing there’s plenty of time in the bag. The board is pretty small regards circuits. Also the faults are massively obvious. I do have a photo of the ’C&G test board’. I’ll try attach it.

I must now add after using my eyes on post #1 I did the combined 2391-52. I’m sure it will be pretty similar
