NICEIC and ELECSA’s latest Tech Talk series has attracted record crowds as contractors prepare for the upcoming introduction of the 18th Edition.

More than 3,000 contractors have now booked to attend one of the 23 regional shows.

The NICEIC and ELECSA team are now gearing themselves up for the second part of the series, which will see them visit nine more locations, and deliver talks even more electricians.

Darren Staniforth, senior technical development manager for NICEIC and ELECSA, commented: “Come January, all electrical contractors in the UK will have to work from the 18th Edition of BS7671. 

“Because of this we are seeing more and more contractors coming to our events to update their knowledge and make sure they have an understanding of the changes.

“TechTalks are a perfect way for contractors to get an overview of what they need to know and ask us any questions they might have about how it applies to their day to day work.”

More than 200 contractors attended each event in Manchester, Norwich and Chelmsford with other locations also proving popular.
