18th Edition Wiring Regulations Update Course

It is the responsibility of every contracting electrician to ensure they are fully conversant with current electrical regulations, but it is equally important that maintenance electricians and electrical managers have sound knowledge of the regulations that relate to their environments and operations.

This course is recommended for holders of the current 17th Edition qualification to Amendment 3 2015 standard. It is primarily aimed at electrical tradespersons and electrical managers to make them aware of the changes introduced to the wiring regulations and implications to design and installation practices. The course will also be of great benefit to companies that intend to perform inspection and testing of fixed wiring installations by providing a sound knowledge of the latest version of the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations.

The course builds to a 2-hour open book examination consisting of 60 multiple choice questions.

Please note, delegates will require a copy of the BS7671:2022 publication, both for the training course and examination. The course fee does not include a copy of this.

What can I expect from Virtual Learning?

Our Virtual Learning courses give delegates the opportunity to learn from the comfort of their own home whilst still getting all the tuition they would in the classroom. 

This is training online but not to be mistaken for E-learning. Our training is delivered in real time by one of our electrical tutors using video conferencing software that gives delegates the opportunity to watch and listen to the tutor, follow the presentation live and interact and ask any questions they may have.

There are scheduled course dates with set start and end times, and short breaks throughout the sessions. This differs to E-Learning where courses are pre-recorded and you can join at any time. 

Our virtual learning can be accessed via a PC, laptop or tablet. When you make a booking, we’ll then send you your joining instructions with the link to access the training – it really is that simple.

What information do I need to provide?

To ensure our virtual courses run as smooth as possible, we require the following:

  • Delegate Name, Email Address and Contact Number
  • Postal Address for the course pack, containing course notes and any purchased publications

We ask for this information no later than 2 weeks before the course start date. If no information is received, the email invite and course pack will be sent to the booker and company address provided. 

How do I take the exam? 

During the course, remote and in-centre examination dates/times will be given to you for you to select and confirm the session which suits you best.
