1 day 18th Edition course

We will also be running a one day 18th Edition course that will only cover the differences between the 18th edition and the latest amendment of the 17th edition (3rd). This course will only be available for those that have gained the Level 3 Award in requirements for Electrical installations since the 3rd amendment of the 17th edition came out (BS7671: 2008 (2015)). If you gained the qualification before the 3rd amendment came out in 2015 then you’ll need to take the 3 day course.
