18th Edition Wiring Regulations
This qualification has been designed to allow learners to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations.
As of July 2018, 18th Edition Wiring Regulations replaced 17th Edition Wiring Regulations. All electrical installations designed after December 31st must comply with BS 7671:2018.
The new regulations include design, erection and verifications of electrical installations. This also includes alterations to existing installations.
The qualifications are essential for those who wish to join a competent persons scheme, allowing electricians to certify that their installations meet the regulatory guidelines.
With effect from 1st September 2021, 18th Edition and DEI qualifications in isolation will no longer be accepted as proof of competence by many scheme providers. Persons wishing to join a CPS should make contact with the scheme provider for exact entry requirements but they are expected to NVQ Level 3 or a minimum of 2-years’ experience and working towards an NVQ Level 3 qualification.
At Options Skills, we also offer several electrical training courses, including: NVQ Level 3 Electrical Training, Domestic Installer Award and Accelerated Electrical Training.
