The 18th edition of BS 7671; the IET Wiring Regulations, has been released and is now available.
From the 1st January 2019 the design of new electrical installations will be required to comply with the new 18th edition.
We also believe that Competent Person Scheme providers will be requiring members to hold a qualification in the new 18th edition. Get prepared and make sure you secure your place on a course to have your qualification in time for the new regs.
It is expected that those individuals holding a 17th Edition qualification will be required to update their qualification; even if this was completed after one of the 17th edition amendments were introduced.
Important: The course price includes all certification and examination fee’s, however, does not include the BS 7671:2018 book which is required for the qualification. Please bring your own copy, if you don’t have a copy you can purchase one online, or you can call us and purchase a copy from us ready for you on the day of your course.
Run over 3 days the 18th edition course will teach you how to design and install to the latest regulations. Suitable for anyone who is currently involved in electrical installation and design, whether they are engaged in the domestic, industrial or commercial industry.
There are no formal pre-requisites to attend the 18th edition course however as a general rule you will already have some knowledge of electrical installation and science.
To achieve your City & Guilds qualification you’ll be assessed via a multiple choice assessment with 60 questions.
The assessment is “open book” and you are able to take your 18th Edition Regulations book BS 7671 into the exam and refer to it throughout.
The delegate must be literate, where English is not their first language their employer can provide an interpreter, but this will only be permissible if the classroom size is adequate.
