This brand-new course is designed for anyone working in the electro-technical sector looking to achieve a Level 3 Award in the Requirements for Electrical Installations BS 7671: 2018 – commonly referred to as an 18th Edition or Wiring Regulations qualification. This course is available in two formats to suit individual requirements; classroom-based, usually delivered at your place of work, or online self study.
Who is it suitable for?
This qualification is suitable for individuals that require an understanding of BS 7671 such as Electrical Safety Managers, Contractors, Practicing Electricians, Electrical Engineers, Contracts Managers and other related trades.
What will the outcomes be?
Upon completion of the full course, individuals will be conversant with the format, content and application of the Requirements for Electrical Installations BS 7671:2018 (18th Edition). Upon completion of the refresher course, delegates will be conversant with the scope and nature of the changes from BS 7671:2015 – Requirements for Electrical Installations (17th Edition) Amendment 3 to BS 7671:2018 – Requirements for Electrical Installations (18th Edition).
What experience and qualifications are needed to take the course?
There are no formal entry requirements for the full course. However, it is generally accepted that learners should have a good knowledge of electrical installation work and electrical science. The update course is designed for individuals who have a good working knowledge of the regulations and have a current qualification to BS 7671:2015
How is the course delivered?
Whether you choose to study the refresher course or the full training course, you can select to learn via either:
- Self-led online training
Study at your own pace and access online resources and materials to support your learning. This option takes you through a series of modules, finishing with an online exam simulation with result analysis, preparing you for the final examination. Average study duration for the online course is estimated between 15-20 hours, dependant on existing knowledge level. The innovative online system tracks progress, meaning you can stop, start and revisit modules at any time during the process.
- Classroom-based study
A one-day refresher or three-day full tutor-led course with advice and guidance from experts in the subject field. Courses are delivered by highly experienced tutors who will support students providing
clarification and answering specific questions.
In order to achieve a certificate in Requirements for Electrical Installations BS 7671:2018 (18th Edition) all delegates, whether studying online or in a classroom environment, are required to complete a full 2-hour, 60 question examination, which covers the whole book of Regulations. It is therefore strongly recommended that anyone who does not have a current 17th Edition Amendment 3 qualification undertake the full course. The final invigilated exam requires delegates to bring a copy of the Regulations with them for reference and must be undertaken in person at an approved centre.
