The Inspection and Testing Exams

City and Guilds 2394 and 2395 are the two qualifications covering Inspection and Testing in the UK.

In order to maintain high standards within the industry, the exam covering Inspection and Testing, which allows qualified electricians to certify their work, must be of very high standards. The C&G 2391 qualification exam was well known for being one of the hardest exams within the electrical industry with a variable pass rate of delegates, around 30%.

Now, with the introduction of two qualifications, City and Guilds 2394 and 2395, some say that the exams have been watered down in order to gain a much higher pass rate.



The new exams consist of three parts. This is true both for the C&G 2394 and the C&G 2395 exams, the main difference being that the questions are more tailored towards the subject of each of the exams (new built or existing installations).


The City and Guilds 2394 Inspection and Testing exam:
