Anyone looking to qualify as an electrician will need to pass 17th edition courses before they can practice professionally.

Every reputable electrical training centre will provide the City & Guilds 2382-10 17th edition courses because it is a crucial part of a trainee's progression to becoming either a domestic installer or fully qualified electrician.

Governing body City & Guilds has devised the 2382-10 qualification to educate trainees about the layout, content and application of the BS 7671 (2008) 17th Regulations Edition.

Learning on these courses is classroom-based and does not involve any practical work because the aim is to introduce the regulations and explain their application through worked examples.

The IEE On-site Guide; BS 7671 : 2008 IEE Wiring Regulations is a useful quick reference for learning on these courses and readers will understand how to use the publication in support of the BS 7671.

Trainees will be required to take a multiple choice exam if they want to be awarded the Level 3 Certificate in the Requirements for Electrical Installations BS7671:2008 so effective studying is recommended.

It is recommended that potential trainees have a basic understanding of electrical principles before enrolling on this course otherwise they will find it extremely difficult to achieve the end qualification.
