Product description

This book answers all your questions on the basics of inspection and testing with clear reference to the latest legal requirements. Chris Kitcher not only tells you what tests are needed but also describes all of them step-by-step with the help of real-world colour photos. Sample forms show how to verify recorded test results and how to certify and fill in the required documentation. The book is also packed with handy advice on how to avoid and solve common problems encountered on the job. With its focus on the practical side of the actual inspection and testing rather than just the requirements of the regulations, this book is ideal for students, experienced electricians and those working in allied industries on domestic and industrial installations. All the theory required for passing the City & Guilds 2391-10 and 2392-10 Certificates is explained in clear, easy to remember language along with sample questions and scenarios as encountered in the exams. The book will also help prepare students on Part P Competent Person courses, City & Guilds 2330 Level 3 courses, NVQs and apprenticeship programmes for their practical inspection and testing exam. Chris Kitcher has 45 years of experience in the electrical industry. He is an Electrical Installation lecturer at Central Sussex College and an examiner for the City and Guilds 2391 qualification. He has worked for the last 12 years in both the college environment and on site. This title is entirely up-to-date with 17th Edition "IEE Wiring Regulations". It includes step-by-step descriptions and photos of the tests show exactly how to carry them out. It helps you to pass your exams on C&G 2391-10, 2392-10 and Part P courses. Test videos presented by Chris Kitcher are available to view on YouTube.
