Yep, I'm being lazy and could probably find the answer if I searched hard enough but...I can't be ars*d

As those of you who know me will know, I have no quals (electrical) under my belt (yet).

I'm starting college within a fortnight (2330) but was wondering if I'd be able to enrol for the 2377 without any other quals obtained?

Cheers. Advice, opinions and abuse welcome as always.

You will be able to enroll for 2377 without any formal electrical qualifications, several of the places where my employers do the maintenance have put employees through the course to keep this inhouse.

did course a few weeks back hate to give bad news only chap out of 4 of us who failed had no elec background, could be he did not ask suffcent questions.
we all spoke the same lingo, so spent the day talking in diffrent terms. he was too shy to ask i guess for fear of looking out of place.
so i would suggest don't worry about looking silly if you do not understand something ask. as for questions multichoice most refering to book, so get a copy of the required book early and do some reading. then no worries.

If your taking the 2377 exams, then there should be two of them, the first is Level 3 Certificate in Managment of Electrical Equipment Maintenance, and the second is Level 3 Certificate in Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment, both exams are open book, the book is IEE Code of practice for in service inspection and testing of electrical equipment, u cant revise for the exam mate as the questions are taken from a "pot" of 1000 questions, the first exam is 45 questions in 1hr30min and the second 30 questions 60 mins, if u are doing the C & G 2377 this is definatly the way it will be, 20 people on our 10 week course, i think only 5 passed both, me included, they may well be open book, but that dont mean its easy..good luck

Yes dead sure, when i say 10 weeks i mean 10 lots of 2.5 - 3 hours on Tuesday nights, two exams, two seperate quals, one in inspection and testing and one in managment of maitenance, thats the "Full" way to do it with C+G, check the 2377 certificate handbook below, on the cover is the tittles of the two quals and page 23 details them:-

your doing units 100 and 200, for testing only you only need one of these, the other is for managing people doing pat testing, which is half as long agin. And if doing that one you could do it without doing the first one. your duplicating most of the testing part.
The recommended time is given in hours, which means it can be done in less time if doing full days eg I did one unit 1 over 2 full ish days but i have seen 'pat testing' advertised as a one day course.
