18th Edition Courses coming to Able Skills this July!

This coming July will the beginning on the 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations and the end of the 17th Edition. An update in the wiring regulations has been rumoured for a number of months and this summer the 18th Edition will be fully active.

Our first Wiring Regulations Course is starting Monday 16th July and this is already full due to the high level of interest this course has drawn. We are also running another course in July which is also full. The demand for the new 18th Edition is going through the roof and we are always looking at scheduling in new course dates to deal with the demand.

The 18th edition course is aimed at practicing electricians, electrical contractors and those who require a good working knowledge of wiring regulations. It’s a three-day electrical training course that’s aim is to gain familiarity with the layout, content and application of the 18th Edition Regulations. It is intended to ensure that on completion of this course, individuals are conversant with the format, content and the application of the Requirements for Electrical Installations and regulations. A basic understanding of electrical principles is recommended in order to be successful on this course.18th edition

Electricians working in the UK are expected to have a solid understanding of what it means to comply with this 18th Edition Course. We anticipate employers will continue to demand that such knowledge can be clearly demonstrated as all tradesmen should take it upon themselves to ensure they are up to scratch.


The three-day course is classroom based, just as the 17th Edition was and will be followed up by an exam on the final day. The exam is a two-hour multiple-choice exam at our centre, also it is an open book exam which means you can refer to the 18th Edition book throughout the exam.

Due to such high demands, we are already booking in dates for later this year. See all our dates here:

  • Monday 20th August
