C&G 2392 Inspection and Testing, Initial Verification Level 2


This level 2 qualification was introduced as an interim qualification before the more difficult level 3 exam. Although the content is very similar, the restrictions really lie with the omission of 3 phase/line installations and the reduced practical exam that is needed to get the award.  It is still quite a good qualification, particularly if you are not a frequent tester or want to brush up on your technique before you tackle the more difficult level 3 qualifications.

The exam consists of 50 questions to be completed within 100 minutes.

Category Number of Questions
