About this course

The aim of this course is to prepare candidates for the City & Guilds 2382-18 examination. An electrician passing the 2382-18 is known as 18th Edition Qualified. You will be able to demonstrate a good understanding of the British Standards BS7671 Wiring Regulations, as they relate to wiring and electrical installations.

All electricians practising in the UK need to understand the Wiring Regulations. You need to have the knowledge to reference BS7671 in order to carry out your work to a professional standard. It is unlikely an electrician can get a job in the UK, without being 18th Edition qualified.

Certified proof of your understanding of the Wiring Regulations provides protection in case you are ever involved in a professional dispute.
