The 18th Edition Course and Electrician Training at Able Skills


What is the 18th edition?


The 18th edition is the latest document outlining the standards for electrical wiring. UK’s standard for electrical wiring installation was released in 2018 and is now fully in force. It is a requirement that everybody working in the world of electrics is familiar with the layout, content and application of this 'book'. This is not a legal requirement, but as this standard is recognised as the most thorough and is published by the UK’s highest governing body in terms of electrical installation, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, it is seen as a mandatory resource.
