18th Edition City & Guilds 2382-18 - Evening

This course was updated in July 2018 and is the latest update to wiring regulations and is an essential qualification for anyone working in the electrical industry.

If you're a practising electrician, you must comply with the regulations for electrical work, by the 1st of July 2019

Forth Valley College offer this course at a very competitive price of £395 which includes providing you with a copy of the regulation booklet.

This course forms the national standard to which all new and amended electrical installations in the UK are to comply.

Please note -

The 18th Edition is delivered over 6 evenings with a 2 hour 60 question multiple-choice exam either on the 4th or 6th June. Those who have passed their 17th Edition (3rd amendment) may prefer the shorter update course. This is delivered over 1 day with the same 2 hour exam on the following day. This has been designed for those already qualified 17th Edition (Amendment 3) candidates and only covers the changes prior to sitting the full exam.
