Everyone working as an electrician requires the 18th Edition qualification to ensure they have a full understanding of the new Blue Book. All installations designed from January 2019 onwards must comply with the new regulations. However, not all electricians need to complete the assessment at the same time:
If you are working on public-sector contracts, you will need to take and pass the assessment from January 2019.
If you are a member of a scheme such as the NICEIC, ELECSA, STROMA, NAPIT or others, you will need to take and pass the assessment before you next renew your membership.
If you are registered with the JIB ECS check system, you will need to take and pass the assessment by a date that JIB ECS will confirm to you.
To provide essential underpinning knowledge on the requirements of the IET Wiring Regulations BS7671-2018 - 18th Edition
2 Day Update Course – Monday and Tuesday 08:30 to 16:30
Our course content will reflect the key changes expected in the 18th Edition since the third amendment and how to navigate the latest blue book. You won’t learn every regulation in the book but you will learn to reference the latest regulations as you would on the job. Topics currently covered on the course will still be:
Scope, object and fundamental principles
Assessment of general characteristics
Protection for safety
Selection and erection of equipment
Inspection and testing
Special installations or locations
If any further changes are made to the new edition we will of course include these in the training.
Candidates should have knowledge of electrical installation and electrical science. You must also have completed a 17th Edition course since the 3rd amendment was launched in January 2015. If you are unsure you should read our information sheet for the course and speak to a member of our staff.
You will need a copy of BS7671 - 18th Edition & On Site Guide, you can purchase these or ask us for a discount price.
