What will I learn?

The 18th Edition of The IET Wiring Regulations were launched on 2 July 2018. Those working on the design, installation and inspection and testing of wiring systems will need to be prepared for the changes in order to remain compliant as some of the changes will affect most electrical installation work. Successful completion of this course will demonstrate learners’ understanding of the requirements of electrical installations to BS 7671: 2018.

After undertaking this course, learners will

  • Understand the scope, object and fundamental principles of BS 7671
  • Understand the definitions used within BS 7671
  • Understand how to assess the general characteristics of electrical installations
  • Understand requirements of protection for safety for electrical installations
  • Understand the requirements for selection and erection of equipment for electrical installations
  • Understand the requirements of inspection and testing of electrical installations
  • Understand the requirements of special installations or locations as identified in BS 7671

    Learners will need to bring their own copy of the BS7671:2018 Wiring Regulations to the course (available at https://shop.theiet.org/bs-7671-2018-requirements-for-electrical-installations-iet-wiring-regulations-18th-edition-blue) and Tabs (Post-It heavy duty 20mm plastic tabs are best)

    Where will it lead me?

    Assuming learners already have a Level 2 electrical qualification (Diploma/Cert in Electrical Installations, or Part P), then they can enrol on to the Level 3 Electrical Installations programme (subject to interview for suitability).

    If you have both Level 2 and Level 3, and are employed in the Electrical Installations Industry, with access to testing equipment, then you would be able to apply for Inspection and Testing (full Initial Verification and Periodic Award).

    We will also shortly be introducing the Electric Vehicle Charging and Design Verification qualification.

    Entry Requirements

    Learners must be aged 19+ and employed in the electrical installation industry.

    Ideally, candidates should have Level 3 Electrical Installations, but as a minimum, should already have Level 2 Electrical Installations, or equivalent qualification (or Part P Qualification).

    English language and Maths must be at a level that will ensure a successful outcome.
