These two inspection and testing qualifications (recommended to be taken together) replace and improve on the former 2391 and 2392 qualifications that were previously available to electricians, but have since been withdrawn.
- Level 3 Award in the Initial Verification and Certification of Electrical Installations (C & G 2394)
