hey guys,

im currently under going an electricians course in the UK but am stuck on a multiple choice question. the answer i was expecting wasnt there!

Q. if a circuit fails a test you should?

A.issue a certificate anyway as you have done the work
B.issue a certificate but ask the customer to get it repaired
C.Enter comments on the certificate but do no completely fill it in
D.Enter comments on the inspection Schedule

i was expecting 'E. Repair the fault and continue/complete testing' but alas not! help appreciated guys!

if you have a spare couple of minutes could you explain briefly why there isnt an option like E, to find/repair the fault

Under what circumstances is the testing being done PIR , MWC , EIC

PIR = B
MW & EIC = none of the answers given, you'll need to get the fault rectified before issuing any certificate.

thank you for your reply easy fox!

so under PIR this would be 100% correct? the idea of walking away from a failed test seems odd. and for my own piece of mind think i would have to rectify the problem before moving on. perhaps il get in contact with the tutors to clear up the question?

EDIT : hello all on the forums by the way! im currently going through my qualifications to become an electrician - although im lucky enough to work with an experienced electrician 3 days a week, and whilst 'training' pay isnt wonderful, the hands on learning is more than i could hope for. hopefully your a good bunch and share a passion for the trade!

for the periodic test & inspect you're there for just that; any faults etc that're found are then extra to put right.

well for a PIR it is not 100% correct, but it is the most correct answer out of those available

you would not 'ask' for it repaired.

with a PIR you are commsioned with making a report on the condition of an existing installation.

Yes you would note that a circuit had failed, but it is down to the person ordering the work what to do with that information

For example a lighting circuit with no CPC would fail its R1+R2 check (or R2 check), but that doesnt mean it has to be repaired
