Course Overview

This 3-day electrical training course will enable you to gain familiarity with the layout, content, and application of BS 7671:2018 18th Edition Regulations. This Certificate ensures you are up-to-date with the latest industry regulations on wiring and the safe use and operation of electrical equipment and systems. This course is entirely theory-based and is completed by way of an online multiple-choice open book exam.

18th Edition Course Content

Many people assume that the 18th Edition course will contain lots of extra content, however in reality it will still remain very similar to the current 17th Edition courses with some changes. The course is delivered over 3 days. The key thing about wiring regulations courses is that they are not designed to teach you every regulation in the book but are more focused on how to reference the latest regulations as you would on the job. As such key topics currently covered on the course will still be included:

  • Scope, object, and fundamental principles
  • Definitions
  • Assessment of general characteristics
  • Protection for safety
  • Selection and erection of equipment
  • Inspection and testing
  • Special installations or locations
  • Appendices
Changes for 18th Edition are suggested to be as follows
  • Protection against overvoltages Clause 443 is likely to be overhauled.
  • Protection against fire Chapter 42 will be updated with extra information on arc fault detection
  • Electrical Embedded heating Section 753 will be extended to include embedded electrical heating systems for surface heating and will include de-icing and frost prevention systems.
  • Energy efficiency There will be a brand-new section covering energy efficiency
18th Edition Full Course Entry Requirements

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 contract 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.
