We will be offering both a 3 day 18th Edition Course and for those who hold the current 17th Edition Amendment 3, a 1 day 18th Edition Update Course.
During the 3 day course, we will be covering the entirety of the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations.
During the 1 day Update course, we will only be covering the new updates and changes.
If you hold the 17th Edition Amendment 3 and are currently well versed and working to Amendment 3, then we recommend the 1 day Update Course.
However, if you’re not as confident with the Wiring Regulations and would like some further training, we would recommend the 3 day 18th Edition course for you.
If you hold a 17th Edition qualification previous to Amendment 3, then you are required to take the 3 day course as you are not eligible for an update course.
Both the full 3 day course and the 1 day update course require you to sit the exact same 60 question, 2 hour exam on the entirety of 18th Edition Wiring Regulations.
If you have any further questions, then please take a look at the FAQs at the bottom of the course page.
If you wish to discuss your options further on what would be best suited for you, please give us a call on 01444 872145.
