Level 4 Design Course – City and Guilds 2396

The 2396 Design and Verification course is aimed at those that want to take their knowledge a little further, it has applications across the board from domestic to industrial.

The designing process will also give you a more complete understanding of other installations, from things like why a certain wiring route may have been used all the way through to why that specific cable type and wiring system was chosen. It also helps massively when testing as it will give you a different perspective on what may be going on behind the scenes.

There are two assessments involved in the course, one of which is a 3 hour written exam; the exam is open book and will be based on all of the things involved in the course. The other assessment will be a portfolio of work that needs to be completed, for this you will be asked to complete the electrical design for a full installation.

Every student who has taken this course with Erudite has enjoyed it; despite having a high level of knowledge already, they have all left having learned something new.
