18th edition course

This is an upgrade to and will replace, the already existing City & Guilds 17th Edition Wiring Regulations all subsequent amendments.

Course Description:

If you have passed your 17th Edition since the last amendment then you are eligible to take this short 1 day 18th Edition update course! Save time and money by covering the topics you need for the new regulations, without having to go over all that you already know.

If you have not yet done the 17th Edition then you will need to take our 3 day 18th Edition course.

It is assumed that the 18th Edition will contain a lot of extra content, however, it is widely speculated in the industry that it will remain very similar to the 17th Edition courses with minor changes. There is no definitive duration of the length of the course at this point but we predict it will remain as 3 days.

Changes for 18th Edition are suggested to be as follows:

  • Protection against overvoltages – Clause 443 is likely to be overhauled.
  • Protection against fire – Chapter 42 will be updated with extra information on arc fault detection
  • Electrical Embedded heating – Section 753 will be extended to include embedded electrical heating systems for surface heating, and will include de-icing and frost prevention systems.
  • Energy efficiency – There will be a brand new section covering energy efficiency

Please be aware that the Wiring Regulations course is not designed to teach you every regulation in the book but it will teach you the best practices on how the reference the latest regulations as you would on the job. As such key topics currently covered on the 17th Edition will still be included.

We have been delivering Wiring Regulations courses for many years and although it is mainly theory based you cannot beat real training in a real classroom. By training with other people in your class you will benefit from being able to ask relevant questions as well as finding the answers to many questions from your fellow students that you may not have even thought of.


A 1 day upgrade course, the CDP option is aimed towards anybody who is looking to obtain knowledge on the new regulations.

Upon completion of the course, candidates will receive a continual professional development Certificate.

City & Guilds

 The City & Guilds 2382-18 course will replace the current C&G 2382-15 certificate.

This upgrade course will outline the change in the regulations and candidates must complete an online, multiple choice exam. Please note, this exam won’t be scheduled the same day as the training course.

Please note, both courses will be running in the same class and that the only major difference will be the exam and the type of certificate
