The course is ideal for anyone working in the electrical industry who needs to be up to date with the latest 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations (released 28th March 2022).The 18th Edition is the industry standard for anyone working with electrical installations in the UK.

The IET has stated that from January 2019, all electrical work carried out in the UK must comply with the 18th Edition.

We advise that candidates who have completed the 17th Edition (without the 3rd Amendment) should complete the 3 day course rather than the 1 day update as there are substantial changes to cover.
