18th Edition BS7671:2018 is released on 2 July after months of anticipation around what will be included in the course and any update and the extent it will change training and implementation moving forward.
It is fair to say that although initially the third amendment was expected to represent a significant update, the training course content was not expected to have far reaching changes. However this has gradually changed as amendments and news emerges around changes to the BS7671 wiring regulation.
We now know the book is perhaps 3 or 4 times larger than it is currently and takes into account the modern home and the impact of wireless devices, new technology and digital interference with wiring.
Although we are 2 weeks away from the course content being released it is clear that hands on, detailed training is needed to maintain the required IET and British Standard set out in the 18th Edition. Due to the extent of changes made in the 18th edition all assessment’s for the above training will be subject to a 2 hour 60 question multiple choice question paper. This is the City & Guilds 2382-18. Just attending an update session is not deemed sufficient as many people hoped.
Oakley Training & Consultancy will be offering a range of programmes from our Basingstoke training centre depending on our client’s learning styles. You can see the Course contents as it is developed on the 1 day or 3 day links below.
