18th edition course
This is an upgrade to and will replace, the already existing City & Guilds 17th Edition Wiring Regulations all subsequent amendments.
The 18th edition course is a 3 day short course aimed at anyone involved in the design, construction and inspection and testing of electrical systems, also a nationally recognised ‘must have’ qualification for companies seeking to recruit electricians. It is intended to introduce the candidate to a working knowledge of the Wiring Regulations along with a brief overview of the Electricity at Work Regulations covering their statutory duties. Previous knowledge of the regulations is not assumed, however, a fundamental knowledge of electrical principles is assumed.
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.
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.
The examination is a 2 hour multiple choice, open book PC based examination with instant results.
The course cost includes examination entry fees.
