Well hello gentlemen,

As some of you may know, looking to go self employed soon, booked onto the 2391 course back in January. 2 hours before the course was due to start (and me in the shower), get a call on my mobile informing me that the course was cancelled due to insufficient candidate numbers (afternoon course rather than evening) Anyways

Been looking into this new C&G course 2392-10. I only have a very limited amount of experience in testing and inspecting so I am wondering will this segmented course be any better for me rather than the full course? I know alot of you have passed the course years ago or just about to do it. Any information would gladly be absorbed into my memory.

Regards

Andy :D

"(and me in the shower), " too much information M8:^O:^O:^O

Completed my 2391 back in May 2000.

the reason I did it was because while I was completing my 2360,

our college we plugging the 2391 course for candidates..

They were able to claim back some money from European funding..

so if you were employed by a small business you only had to pay for the exam!

As a sole trader was classed as a small business, all I had to do was sign a declaration form of my employment

pay the exam fee & do the course!! :) So I said... YES! :D

It was 10 weeks, evening course, I had NO specific experience of inspection and testing but I got through alright.

I think it is mostly a logical mindset & perhaps some fault finding experience that helps.

oh and a pretty fair understanding of electrical science side of things..

i.e. are the test readings you get appropriate or the type of circuit you are testing?

I did have previous qualifications within the Telecommunications sector of business..

which also probably helped a bit with general circuit evaluation and using test meters etc..?? :)

but overall I didn't find it to taxing.

:)

In the office again.
I passed 2391 in December `06. Again, did the evening course over 10 weeks (but had to pay for it!).

Wasn`t the easiest exam to pass; but wasn`t super-hard. As SL says, mindset plays a great part. Some people, you KNEW they wouldn`t pass. No revision, no study. Seemed to expect the course to literally tell them the answers. I`d had 20 yrs since passing 236, and 5 years since 2381. Wasn`t a problem. Don`t panic, but DO study it.
