EAL Level 3 Periodic inspection and testing
The EAL Level 3 award in the periodic inspection, testing and certification course has been created specially to follow 17th edition wiring regulations 2008 (BS 7671), IET Guidance Note 3 , the electrical safety council’s best practice guide and is an excellent alternative to the City & Guilds 2395 course. The objective of this electrical training course is to give you a good understanding of the theory and practices required to do a periodic inspection of electrical installations and covers both single and three phase supply. The course will enhance your periodic electrical inspection and testing skills and give you better opportunities of employment.
We have decided to run the EAL Level 3 Award In the periodic inspection, testing and certification of electrical installations instead of the City and Guilds 2395 as there will be no need to return to the centre to complete your final written paper as you currently have to with the City and Guilds periodic inspection course. Realistically as the written exam is only run quarterly by the Guilds you could find yourself in a position that you are returning two months after your course completion and will probably have forgotten a substantial amount and possibly affect your result (please see City & Guilds 2395 examiners report). With the EAL course all your online exams and practical assessments will be completed at the end of your 5 day course before you leave the centre. This EAL course is equally recognised nationally by all employers and Government approved part p scheme providers.
