I'm going to get my 2391 to get my higher JIB grading.
Part P is a joke that isn't even working for what it has intended, but that's a long long story.
youre quite right but its a fall-back.
domestic sucks but its always there !!!! - part P is bullsh1t, its there to make jobs for idiots and to try and stop idiots working on the electrics in thier own houses !!!
I had to replace my consumer unit recently and I made a schematic of all the wiring in my house.
I wondered why there were 4 T+E cables running to a single gang socket in an upstairs bedroom.... I traced it to a spur (from a ring main - not fused) which turned into a ring main for the extension that was built before I moved in... !!!!
there was also the old cooker outlet that had been changed to a two gang outlet and the 30A fuse left in place !!!!
needless to say I sorted it all out, but what I did was illegal (I think) cos I dont have 2381/2391.
nevermind though because the leccy is sorted and much safer than it was before (also 45A fuse for garage lighting).
if you look on some "training supplier" sites, apparently peeps are already getting dragged through the courts for not having part p and working in houses !!!!
good luck mate, the the current electrician drought I would take the 11K and move on !
