Yesterday, we reached and exceeded our 1,000th candidate to successfully pass the 18th Edition qualification. Since the new BS 7671 wiring regulations were launched last July (2018), our dedicated tutors have travelled the length and breadth of the country, delivering 18th edition courses to engineers nationwide.

In just under 8 months, we have delivered a total of 120 18th edition courses, consisting of a mix of the full 3-day course and the 1-day update course. A huge 75 of these have been delivered on site for companies across a range of industries, and the remaining 45 at our training centres in Rotherham, Salford, Birmingham, Sevenoaks, Newbury and Glasgow. 

With over 1,000 accomplishments in 120 courses, this gives us an outstanding pass rate of 92%.

Ray Garrow, Senior Electrical Tutor said: “It’s fantastic that we’ve been able to support more than 1,000 candidates in achieving their 18th edition qualification. Delegates successfully completing a course is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a tutor and it’s great to help them to use and understand the requirements of the latest regulations.”

The 18th Edition Wiring Regulations came into full force on 1st January 2019, meaning all electrical installations that are designed from now on must comply with BS 7671:2018. To maintain Registered Electrician Status, engineers are required to have the new qualification by 1st July 2019.
