Hi all
Interesting site
I am currently on my final exams for Level Year2 2330.
Do you think this will equipe me to go on to the 17th and 2391?
I don't fancy spending another year doing Level 3 because the tutors are saying the pass rate is only 40 odd percent.Anyway,most jobs i've seen require the 17th and 2391 and not much emphasis placed on L3

A big IF I may add.Considering my past written exams i'm not too hopefull.
and I don't mean the pass mark is 40.The amount of people who pass is 40,and 70 precent drop out rate.Maybe my college is bad? Is this normal
 
you will need nvq 3 if you ever want to be registered with the jib and thats worth doing
 
And if you go on to do the 2391, will that be any easier? Probably not by all accounts on here.

I have heard of the 2392,but isn't that much of the same as L2.R1,R2,Rings,Bonding etc..
Is the 2391 a theory test,or is there a practical as well.
I was hoping to buy the testing book and learn it myself,and when ready apply for the course.
From what I know the course is about 5 days,and doubt you can barely learn much in that time.
If there is a practical it would make things a bit more difficult,bacase I don't have access to any of the test equipment/rig

You should really have a copy of BS7671 whichever course you do as you will use this in your studies.

if you are worried about passing 2330 level 3 i wouldnt even consider 2391 as an option as they are worlds apart :eek:
youve completed 2 years, to skip the third would make the last 2 years a waste of time in my eyes as a partially completed course is pretty worthless :confused:
best of luck with whatever you decide ;)

I'll be going straight onto the 17th,and 2391 exams after.
Have you done L3 flukey.i have the 2391 testing book ,and it doesn't seem much different from the 2330 302 unit on I&T
