Know the corgi book, they will ask several questions from each section and expect you to deliver more than just a one word answer. My meeting went deep into thermal inversion... yes I hear you say... thermal what. Good job I have a science degree and a physics a-level behind me.
Biscuits soften the blow, but he will still ask you the questions regardless.
make sure you know that the temporary continuity bond is for reducing the likelihood of sparks and not just for protection against electrocution...
I was sweating it but it was really relaxed. THe corgi inspector has a bad reputation, he;s a nice guy, just make sure you supply the relevant tea/coffee/biscuit/knowledge combo and you'll be fine!
Firstly good luck.
Also swat up on the most relevant regs, e.g. unsafe situations,make sure you check fluing,ventilation(if req) and flame pic.Working press should roll off your tongue. Appliances,distances etc.
You don't need to know the CORGI book inside out. They don't expect you to know everything, if you don't know - as steve the gas says - say so and refer to the relevant CORGI book/literature, that's what it's there for.
They will expect you to know the basics- tightness tests, let-by, stabilisation, temporary continuity, ventilation requirements, flue flow and spillage tests, ID AR and NCS categories etc etc.
Remember you always refer to manfacturers instructions when working on and installing appliances.
