By way of progression we usually recommend that people aim to obtain Initial and Periodic Testing, Inspection and Verification qualifications. The benefit of holding these qualifications means that you will be able to undertake and complete Initial Testing and Inspection Reports for 3rd parties, i.e non-qualified electricians, builders etc. You will also be able to complete Periodic Inspection reports for landlords etc. If you are a beginner we suggest that you gain 6 -12 months experience testing against your own installations.
