Hi
Just stumbled across your site, looks great! I qualified as a sparks way back in 1975 at Oxford tech college. Sometimes I tell people "I studied at Oxford" just to see the reaction on there face as they think he looks to thick to be a Oxford graduate, yeah who cares!
To cut a long story short I have been out of the game for a while and would like to get back in possibly in the test & insection side on a part time basis. I have been thinking of taking C&G2392 and then 2391 but am unclear where I could go from there (hence the title!)
NICEIC seem to be geared up for self certification also CORGI seem to be in the game. Can anyone please help or do I need to be certified myself under the mental health act!

You haven't said if you have the 17th Edition?

Not quite sure how the schemes relate to the C&G2392 as appose the C&G2391 but you could check out the self cert schemes here:

Many thanks, I will check these out. Do I have the 17th edition?...I think it was the 15th back in those days. I mentioned taking the 2392 first then the 2391 becuase I understand it to be a more basic version of 2391, baring in mind I have been out of the game for a while, please feel free to correct me if I have got this wrong.
All the best

The 2392 is a newish qualification and covers inspection and test upto 100A it is the fundimental principals in testing & inspection and is a good course to start although the shame thing is most people/companies/agencies havent heard of it & all companies i have worked for will not exept it as a valid qualification & thus only believe the 2391-10 to be the only test/inspection qualification even for domestics ! The 2391 is only needed for larger and more complexed installations ie multi-phase but covers all phases.
So yes 2392 then 2391-10 sound a good choice.

I went straight for the 2391 missing the 2392 out completely. The pass rate aint particularly good (apparently) and I'm only in my 3 week of the course. If I fail I'll wished that I'd done the 2392 first! :)
