Whether you are Currently training towards a career as an electrician or someone in need of a good working knowledge of the regulations, we offer a comprehensive 3-day course that will help you get up to speed with the  BS 7671:2018 - 18th Edition Regulations. We have plenty of availability and expert instructors who have been teaching this topic since the inception of the newest wiring regulations.

What is the 18th Edition?

In all trades there has to be regulations. The 18th Edition is simply the newest set of guidelines for electrical installation. Published in July 2018 they outline the industry standard for safe electrical isolation, maintenance and more. Anybody working with electrical installations must have some knowledge of these 'regs'. The regulations apply to the design, erection and verification of electrical installations, plus additions and alterations to existing installations. 

The IET Wiring Regulations is a very detailed book. Nobody in the industry will know the regulations in full or memorise it from front to back. You are not expected to know every single guidelines, safety measure and regulation. Your goal when studying the 18th edition is to understand how to reference them and relate them to specific situations.
