With 18th edition a year away, it’s time for electricians, technicians, and installers to take note.
The draft has been released for professionals and anyone with an interest to read and comment on but many of you simply don’t have the time to read through what is a massive document.
Luckily there are some really great resources already available and Logic4training is going to do its best to keep you up to speed with as many as we can.

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 final inclusions in the 18th edition won’t be known for certain until July but courses are already under development so that they can be finalised in good time for the final publication next year.
