This EAL Level 3 inspection and testing qualification is a direct equivalent to the City & Guilds 2394-01 (Initial Verification) Award. It is recognised as being the same by organisations such as the JIB and NICEIC.

The course syllabus is the same, so it is delivered in an identical manner and the practical assessments at the end of the course are very similar. The significant difference is that the examinations are all open book and they are all multiple choice. Some learners prefer this assessment method and the fact that results are usually available instantly..

This Awards gives you an understanding of the theory and practice of:
– initial verification
– commissioning
– testing of both single and three phase electrical installations.

What happens if I fail an assessment?

You will have a very good chance of passing your assessments at the first attempt as our courses are very thorough and our tutors are there to guide and support you.

If it doesn’t go right for you on the day the main thing, is not to worry – it happens from time to time.

Your tutor will review your score with you and you may just need to review your notes again and sit the exam a couple of days later. This is often all that’s needed.
