The 18th Edition Wiring Regulations (BS7671:2018) replaced the 17th Edition on 2nd July 2018. BS7671:2018 applied to all new installations from 1st January 2019. Amendment 1 was issued May 2020 and is available from the IET website (BS7671:2018 Amendment 1:2020). For electricians and other building services engineers completing electrical work (gas installers, kitchen/bathroom fitters, plumbers and builders) who already hold the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations Amendment (AMD3) qualification, we offer an 18th Edition Wiring Regulations top-up course.
Logic4training’s 18th Edition upgrade training course is for candidates who already hold the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations AMD3 qualification, such as experienced electricians and those requiring a working knowledge of BS7671:2018.
The cost of the 18th Edition upgrade course includes training, assessment, registration with City&Guilds and the examination costs.
A full 18th Edition Wiring Regulations qualification is also available. Click here for more information.
The 18th Edition upgrade qualification is only open to candidates who already hold the BS7671:2008 (2015) 17th Edition Wiring Regulations AMD3 qualification and have a good working knowledge of its practices – unchanged elements will be tested in the exam, but not covered during the course.
For candidates who don’t feel confident that they have a proper understanding of the 17th Edition Wiring regulations, whether they hold the qualification or not, we recommend undertaking the full 18th Edition course. Click here for more information.
Operatives must provide a copy of the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations AMD3 certificate on the day of the course.
Existing Registered Electricians had until July 2019 to update their Wiring Regulations qualification.
Anyone who needs an understanding of electrical wiring (gas installers, kitchen fitters, plumbers and builders) must work to the 18th edition from January 2019. For operatives who are CPS members, or are looking to join CPS, knowledge of 18th edition, alongside a Part P qualification, is required. Training is not mandatory, but the best route to understanding.
From January 2019, anyone applying for an Installation or Maintenance Electrician gold card for the first time will be required to sign up to Registered Electrician status and be qualified to the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations. Candidates training in the Wiring Regulations for the first time will need to undertake the full qualification. Click here for more information.
The 18th Edition Wiring Regulations upgrade course covers the changes from the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations AMD3 only. Existing 17th Edition Wiring Regulations and parts that have not changed in any detail will not be covered. There is no practical element.
Candidates will be required to complete a 60 question multiple choice online exam, which will cover both the existing regulations and the changes, so prior knowledge of the 17th Edition AMD3 is essential.
Candidates will require the new 18th Edition book the revised 18th Edition on-site guide is now available to purchase at Logic4trade website. Amendment 1 was issued May 2020 and is available to view and download on the IET website (BS7671:2018 Amendment 1:2020).
