What will I learn?

It is suitable for those new to the industry or practising electricians, and is ideal for ensuring candidates are aware of changes made under the new 18th Edition Regulations.

Learners will also be familiarised with the changes made since Amendment 3 of the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations (2015) and also from previous versions.
