Upto to you tucker, legally you don't have to have a qualification to inspect and test, but it does help as some cotractor insist you have it. Might be best to get your 17th edition and see how it goes, cos at least you'll know what you're looking for when you test.

Some colleges do additional practical sessions for inspection an testing which would give you some general knowledge of how to use the meter etc, then once you've done some testing in a job, go for an inspection and testing qual.

I put my 'basic' students through the 2392, and insist they pass it before i will consider them for the 2391

the way i look at it, most people fail the 2391, wheras i have very high pass rates for the 2392 (its only a level 2 qual), so at least you get a formal qual in inspecting and testing, then go on to the 2391 when you have got more time on the meter

and remember, you pays your money, you takes your choice

we charge about the same for each course (about £995)

2392 is an initial verification of a small single phase board with a ring and spur, cooker circuit, one 2 way lighting and one radial to a socket, done in two hours, including the EIC

then its a 45 q multi-choice online closed book exam, its level2 and is NOWHERE near as hard as the 2391 exam, which is curently sitting at about a 33% pass rate:eek:

I went straight onto the 2391 and studied hard. I am from a degree level background in Electrical Engineering so didn't find the exam too tough.

good on ya, I am glad the 2392 is there, some of the lads find 2391 a step too far, at least they can still get an insepction and testing qual
