Entry Requirements

As a general rule candidates should have completed a 17th Edition course since the 3rd amendment was launched in January 2015. This is because the course only covers the changes since the last amendment. In order to qualify for our money back guarantee you must hold a qualification with the code C&G 2382-15.

The course is primarily aimed at practicing electricians and domestic installers, however it is also very popular with a range of other related trades needing to update and enhance their understanding of the IET Wiring Regulations. All candidates must be over 16 years old.

Why take this course?

By taking this one day class you will give yourself the best chance of passing first time by studying in an environment which lends itself to learning. You can take yourself away from your day to day distractions and know that at the end of the course you will have completed the learning and will most likely have passed. You will also be in a class room of like minded people who recently passed their 17th Editions meaning the course can be taught at the right level for you. Remember every installation from January 2019 will need to be designed in line with the 18th Edition wiring regulations. Anyone looking to register with a competent persons scheme will need to prove they are up to date even if they have already completed a Level 3 NVQ. Also anyone looking to register with the new ECS Check system will need the latest qualification.

Other reasons to train with us include:

Online access to course materials and future updates

This course forms part of the IET Centre of Excellence due to the quality of training

All students on this course will gain access to our online learning portal. If any amendments to the 18th Edition are published we will update the details in the learning portal giving you direct access to the most up to date information. There is no need to re-take or update your qualification for new amendments.

18th Edition Course Content:

The 1 day 18th Edition course will mainly focus on the changes to the 17th Edition since the third amendment plus how to navigate the latest blue book. You won’t learn every regulation in the book but you will learn to reference the latest regulations as you would on the job. Topics currently covered on the course will still be:

Scope, object and fundamental principles


Assessment of general characteristics

Protection for safety

Selection and erection of equipment

Inspection and testing

Special installations or locations


What are the key changes in the 18th Edition?

Key changes to the 18th Edition are as follows:

Protection against overvoltages - Clause 443 is likely to be overhauled.

Protection against fire - Chapter 42 will be updated with extra information on arc fault detection

Electrical Embedded heating - Section 753 will be extended to include embedded electrical heating systems for surface heating, and will include de-icing and frost prevention systems.

Energy efficiency - There will be a brand new section covering energy efficiency

As stated above the course is not designed to cover every regulation in the book. It will teach you how to best reference your book in relation to situations you will face in your working life.

18th Edition Exams & Assessments

You will still take the same exam as those completing a 3 day course. This is because C&G has not formally released a top up qualification as they did when the 17th edition was released. As such you will take a 2 hour online multiple choice exam which takes place in the afternoon of the course. You will be able to take your blue 18th Edition Regulations book (BS 7671) into the exam with you and refer to it if need be. The timing of the exam means that you will have on average 2 minutes per question so a good overall knowledge of the 18th Edition regs plus a thorough understanding of the book is a must.

Please note that you must bring photographic ID such as passport or driving license with you in order to sit the assessment on this course

18th Edition Text Books Required

You will need the following book:

We stock some books in our main centres in Gatwick, Warrington and Leeds, however we can not guarantee stock availability unless you call us in advance to purchase the books. They can then be put aside for you to collect on the first day of your course. To buy books please call 01293 529777 or 0800 856 4448.

We regret that do not supply books from our Short Course Centres, therefore please ensure that you buy your books before you start your course.


When will I need to take this course?

This will depend on your situation. The main thing is that all installations designed from January 2019 onwards must comply with the new regs. As such if you are happy with your understanding of the new Blue book then there is no need to take a course. However if you belong to scheme such as the NICEIC, ELECSA, STROMA, Napit or others then they will tell you when you need to complete the qualification by. If you are registered with the JIB ECS check system then you will also need to achieve the latest qualification by a date which they will confirm to you.

How can I tell if I have the latest amendment?

If you passed your 17th edition since the 1st January 2015 then you will most likely have passed with the latest 3rd amendment. The only way to be 100% is to check your certificate for the course code C&G 2382-15. In order to attend this course we will ask to see a copy of your certificate to confirm you meet the entry criteria.

Who needs the 18th edition?

Virtually everyone working in electrical installation needs to be up to date with the latest wiring regulation. It is essentially the industry bible. Installers and employers require it as do governing bodies.

What is the pass rate?

We have a proven track record with exceptionally high pass rates of 98%. That is why we offer our 100% money back guarantee.

Do I need any experience?

We recommend that you understand the basic of electrical installation before undertaking this course. You must have also achieved your 17th edition with the latest 3rd amendment.

Is there any homework?

It is not mandatory, however students looking to pass first time may wish to set aside a couple of hours each evening to review course notes and revise.
