IET Academy and NICEIC 18th Edition Courses

We of course encourage you to purchase the Electacourse 18th Edition Online Course or our 18th Edition Update course, both of which we consider to be more effective than those offered by the IET or NICEIC, however we understand you may have already signed up with the IET or NICEIC and are now looking to take the City & Guilds 2382-18 exam. We can take you as a candidate for the exam, there are two requirements:

  1. You can only book for the exam at one of our Quick Book Centres, the other centres are reserved for Electacourse candidates
  2. On registration for the exam (after you have made the exam purchase), you will be required to upload your course completion certificate

Cost of the exam

The cost of the exam is £160 (+VAT). If you have already purchased either the Electacourse 18th Edition Online or 18th Edition Update courses you will have received a voucher which discounts this exam price. Use the voucher when purchasing the exam.

The price includes City & Guilds exam registration, exam sitting and City & Guilds certificate (on successfully passing the exam).

Readiness for the exam

You will need to demonstrate to us your readiness for the exam. Most commonly we will ask you to declare your most recent results using the 18th Edition and Part P Online Practice tests. We can verify this through viewing your progress through the courses/practice.

If you are doing the City & Guilds 2382-18 exam as an 18th Edition Update Course or Exam-Only customer, we will ask you for your 17th Edition Certificate number.

Important information

We can only accept an Exam Only Booking if you meet at least one of the following criteria:

  1. You are already an Electacourse 18th Edition Online Course or 18th Edition Update Online Course customer (don’t forget to apply your discount voucher)
  2. You are an Electacourse 18th Edition Online Practice test customer and can demonstrate you have been regularly achieving greater than 80% mark in the Electacourse 18th Edition Online Practice test
