May 18, 2018 featured image

The 18th Edition Wiring Regulations (BS7671:2018) replace the 17th Edition on 2nd July 2018.

The 17th Edition Wiring Regulations were launched in 2008 and while there have been a few amendments, not much has changed since then – until now.

On the 2nd July 2018 the 18th Edition will be officially published; a significant overhaul of electrical wiring standards and best practice

BS7671:2018 will apply to new installations from 1st January 2019.

The latest changes will mean that electricians currently working will be expected to update their qualifications to the new edition by next year.

Many will want to do this as soon as possible.

Why not do the 18th Edition course now so you’re ahead of the curve?

Those qualifying for the first time will study the 18th edition (IET 18) from 2nd July 2018.

Courses from Logic4training

Logic4training has published 18th Edition training courses ready for the introduction of the new wiring regulations in July.

A full 18th Edition Wiring Regulation Course is available, as well as an upgrade option for candidates who already hold 17th Edition AMD3.

UK standards for electrician training do not change that regularly; when they do, it’s a major event and all training provision must be updated.

The new IET 18th Edition Wiring Regulations book published in July 2018, and courses and exams is now available to book.
