C&G 2357 Unit 305 Questions With Answers
The C&G2357-305 forms part of the NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Electrotechnology. It is an online multiple-choice exam consisting of 15 questions, to be completed in 30 minutes.
It is the second exam encountered and focuses on these topics: statutory and non statutory regulatory requirements, checking the work location prior to the commencement of work, safe isolation, wiring systems and associated equipment, BS7671 Wiring Regulations, making good and protection of property, purpose and application of specifications and data, types of electrical cables and installations, wiring enclosures, safe use of power tools, hand tools and electrical equipment and environmental impact on electrical systems.
These are exam questions for the C&G 2357 Unit 305 exam. All the questions are from past exam papers. In order to simulate the exam conditions we recommend using a stopwatch set to 30 minutes. During that time you need to answer all 15 questions. Remember this is a closed book exam.
