2391 + Part P

Recommended Posts

I'm taking the 2391 end of November 5 day course i'm just wondering if i would still need part P for domestic installations or would the 2391 cover it?

So from that i take it that part P would be needed to carry out domestic work.

Thanks for reply

My lecturer was Talking to our area NICEIC assessor.

He stated that the NICEIC would be happy to accept anyone on their Domestic installer scheme that hold the following three Certs:

1. City & Guilds (C&G) 2382-10 17th Edition Electrical Wiring Regulations BS7671 OR

City & Guilds (C&G) 2382-20 16th to 17th Edition Update

2. City & Guilds (C&G) 2393-10 (2393) Certificate in the Building Regulations for Electrical Installations in Dwellings - Level 3 (Part P)

3. City & Guilds (C&G) 2392 Fundamental Inspection and Testing

As already stated Part P is a Building Regulation not a QUALIFICATIONheadbangheadbangheadbang

Bacon,

Don't get confussed with 'Part P', it is just one part of the building regulations for electrical safety. The 2391 is a high level electrical qualification.

No qualified electrician should need to complete a 'Part P' course to prove that they are competent to carry out work that falls under 'Part P' of the building Regualtions electrical safety. Competency would have already been proven with their electrical qualifications.

Limited scope members of schemes (i.e. kitchen fitters etc) maybe required to prove competency under 'Part P' and be required to do a short course.

Hope this helps!

And by the way - you do not need 2391 to join NIC, Elecsa etc etc. ;)

Good point - I still can't believe how many people think it is a bloody qualification

I know with the NICEIC at least that they will waive the requirment for 2391 if you can demonstrate to your assesor that you have what they deem to be a high level of competence for testing, also it is generally recognised that 2392 demonstrates competence to complete certificates for your own work. 2391 is considered the qualification to have if you are engaged in periodic testing.

With regards to the NICEIC registration, I work for the MOD and i don't think they would take to somebody going around various base's checking on my installation work i do.

All of the schemes to the best of my knowledge will require work to asses, we work at two RAF bases and they have allowed us to take the NICEIC inspector on to the bases with prior arrangement.

I work on a nuclear site and unless they are security cleared they can't get on the site any more.
