EAL - Initial and Periodic Inspection, Testing & Condition Reporting Combined Course

Price: £1350.00 (Inc. VAT & Certification Fees)
Due to the requirements of the JIB, Training in Electrical has combined both initial and periodic condition reporting qualifications as a 5 day combined qualification course. These qualifications are brand new and have been endorsed by Summit Skills and have been verified by Ofqual. Studying both these qualifications are a direct alternative to the City & Guilds 2394/5 combined course and is generally delivered over 5 days.

These combined qualifications are assessed by two open book on line multiple choice assessments sat during the week of the course. This course has become a very popular replacement to the City & Guilds versions as they are fully recognised by NICEIC, NAPIT and the Joint Industry Board (JIB) and can be used as evidence for grading as an Approved Electrician (if required).
