Electricians can keep up to speed with the 18th Edition Wiring Regs, with a new online course provided by the IET.

The course is suitable for those needing working knowledge of BS 7671, including electrical installers, designers, specifiers and those working in the inspection and testing of electrical equipment, and will prepare electricians for the City & Guilds 2382:18 exam.

Highest standards of skills development

David Phillips, director of apprenticeships and technical education City & Guilds, said: “City & Guilds are committed to the highest standards of skills development and learning in the Electrotechnical industry.  We are proud to have collaborated with the IET on this innovative online tool which will upskill thousands of individuals on the 18th Edition. It will enable electrical professionals to get up to scratch on this important new regulation quickly, flexibly and cost-effectively.”

The IET Wiring Regulations is an essential publication for all professionals working in the electrical industry, and forms the national standard to which all new and amended electrical installations in the UK are to comply, and the organisation has implored all electrical professionals to ensure they are familiar with the changes in BS 7671:2018 before the new requirements come into effect from January 2019.
