You are now be deemed 'competent' to carry out PIR's.

Esteemed
Well done
What it means is that you should and probably will, feel pleased and proud of doing so
It still remains probably, the city and guilds exam with the lowest pass percentages of them all

In the world of practical reality,until PIRs are regulated and carried out only by competent persons, ie (holders of the 2391) then much less advantage over others than it deserves

It will make employment carrying out PIRs more available to you compared to non 2391 candidates
and should be a big advantage for employment as an installation or maintenance electrician

Although not required by the other schemes for competent person registration,it will qualify you for joining napit It will qualify you with the other schemes for doing pirs under their banner subject to additional fees
It will be sufficient for becoming a qualified supervisor with a company enrolled with the aproved contractor scheme of the niceic

But most of all,it demonstrates to yourself and others a level of competence and understanding that is itself rewarding

You need to speak to your LABC and scheme provider and ask them if they would accept a PIR as you cannot be held responsible for the installation.

Hi.

As you did not carry out the installation yourself, the only certificate you can issue is a PIR. If a cert is required for building control then best to contact them first and explain the situation.

Sorry, local building control.

When any electrical work is now carried out, it must be notified to them via your scheme provider.

However, you are not allowed to sign off someone elses work.

In this instance you can only do a pir which, more often than not, they will accept if there is a problem with a previous sparky.

This isnt, however, a get out clause for an unregistered electrician.
