EAL Level 3 Inspection and Testing course
The EAL Level 3 award in the initial verification and certification course has been designed specifically to follow BS 7671 (17th edition wiring regulations 2008), IET Guidance Note 3, the ESC’S (electrical safety council’s) best practice guides and is an equivalent alternative to the City & Guilds 2394 course.
The objective of this course is to provide you with an understanding of the practices/theory involved in the initial verification and commissioning of electrical installations and will cover both single and three phase systems. The course will improve your electrical inspection and testing skills and give you an improved opportunity of employment.
We have chosen to deliver this Level 3 Award in the Initial Verification and Certification over the City and Guilds 2394 as you will be able to complete all of your practical and written/online exams at the end of your 5 day Course.
This is not the case with the City and Guilds where you will be required in the best case scenario to return to the training centre the following Wednesday or Thursday for the written exam after you have completed your course which potentially could cost you more money in travel, prove inconvenient and affect your ability to pass the exam (see City & Guilds examiners report).
The worst case Scenario could be that you wait up to 2 months after your course to complete the written exam as the Guilds only run them quarterly which could impact significantly upon your result. As the old training adage says “use it or lose it”! The EAL qualification is equally well recognised amongst the Government approved part p schemes as the City and Guilds and has been awarding qualifications since 1964.
