The IET have now confirmed that the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations will be updated and a new 18th Edition course will be available. The IET's current timetable is set for it to be live by July 2018, however the design of electrical installations are not required to comply to the 18th Edition until January of 2019. We now have dates available for our 18th edition courses with locations nationwide. If you contact us and register your interest we will be able confirm where and when we will be delivering in your area.
We assume that from January 2019 scheme providers will be asking members to hold the 18th edition however we expect there to be some flexibility with existing members.
There are no formal entry requirements for this course. As a general rule candidates should have knowledge of electrical installation and electrical science.
The course is primarily aimed at practicing electricians and domestic installers, however it is also very popular with allied professionals such as contracts managers, designers, electrical engineers, consultants, surveyors, and other related trades needing to update and enhance their understanding of the IEE Wiring Regulations.
All candidates must be over 16 years old.
Why take this course?
Every electrician and domestic installer needs to stay up to date with the latest wiring regulations. As such this is possibly the most popular course we offer. Anyone looking to register with a competent persons scheme or the new ECS check scheme will need to prove they are up to date even if they have already completed a Level 3 NVQ.
