Course Overview

City & Guilds 2382-22 18th Edition Course

This course qualification is officially known as the Level 3 Award in the Requirements for Electrical Installations BS 7671:2018.

The aim of this course is to provide you with a great understanding of the Wiring Regulations, which you must follow when carrying out any domestic or commercial electrical installation work. This qualification will also be essential if you want to join a Government Approved Part P Scheme Provider, like NICEIC or ELECSA.

The IET 18th Edition Wiring Regulations 2018 is a large brown book, full of regulations that we must follow as domestic electricians. The book content can sometimes appear quite daunting, however, as electrical training specialists, we will ensure that you understand the key chapters and appendices, and how to reference the regulations prior to taking your exam.

Part 2 – Definitions
