Our 2 day course has been designed for those people working within the electrotechnical industry who require working knowledge of the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations BS7671:2018. The course will be delivered over 2 days over 2 consecutive weeks. This 18th Edition course is the equivalent of our 3 day 18th Edition course delivered in the centre.
The course is theory based, providing the underpinning knowledge and understanding of all parts of the 18th Edition Wiring Regulation BS7671:2018. On completion of this course candidates, will be required to sit a 2 hour multiple choice, open book examination on the full content of the regulations.
To complete the training, you will need to have either a PC or laptop with a webcam and be able to download GoToTraining software prior to the course commencing. Step by step guidance on how to access the training will be provided to you.

The course covers key aspects of the 18th Edition wiring regulations to enable you to be able to reference your regulations books as you would in real life when faced with a variety of situations. The course includes the online classes coupled with practice exams at the end, to prepare you for the real exam which is taken in one of our centres.

City & Guilds state that
“any IET wiring regulations books taken into exams cannot contain the following:
• Sample exam questions, answers or diagrams
• Any writing in the regulations or accompanying written notes
• Notes, diagrams or any content that may in anyway advantage the candidate in answering questions within the exam.
It is the responsibility of the centre (ETT) to ensure the material in the candidate’s resources cannot unfairly advantage candidates in any way. If there is any doubt over the suitability of content the publication should not be used and replaced with ‘clean’ regulations.” To remove any uncertainty or additional stress to candidates during exams by having to check each page of their book and possibly confiscate their books. ETT provide candidates with a clean book containing post- it notes that highlight the key parts within the regulations.
Candidates who achieve this qualification can progress onto EAL Electrical Installation Inspection Testing Certification and Reporting
