Be the First!

The 18th edition of the IET Wiring Regulations is due to be released on 1st July 2018.

Whilst the designs of electrical installations do not need to be compliant with the 18th edition until January 2019 and whilst it has not been explicitly stated, we believe that Competent Person Scheme providers will be requiring their members to hold an 18th edition qualification.

It is expected that those individuals holding a 17th Edition will be required to update their qualification even if this was completed after one of the 17th edition amendments.

This page will be updated to reflect live bookings. We are expecting a high level of demand for the 18th edition and as such we are offering you the opportunity to book early and be amongst the first to hold an 18th edition certificate, demonstrating that you and/or your company is completely up to date with the latest changes to BS 7671.

However,if you can’t wait that long and need to prove that you are working to the current regulations we will be offering the 17th edition until the changes around July 2018. In addition we will offer you a discounted course when the 18th edition is released giving you the opportunity to show compliance now and a hassle free low-cost alternative for any subsequent training needs.

18th Edition Course Content

It is expected that the content of this new edition will be largely similar to the current 17th edition with some important changes. During the training sessions, we look through the content of the regulations but there is also a focus on the key areas that you may need for your job role. The aim is for you to gain an understanding of the requirements contained within BS 7671, including the changes that may affect you and your work and in addition, for you to be successful in the examination.
