18th Edition Course Content
Many people assume that the 18th Edition course will contain lots of extra content, however in reality it will still remain very similar to the current 17th Edition courses with some changes. We still expect the course will be delivered over 3 days. The key thing about wiring regulations courses is that they are not designed to teach you every regulation in the book but are more focussed on how the reference the latest regulations as you would on the job. As such key topics currently covered on the course will still be included:
- Scope, object and fundamental principles
- Assessment of general characteristics
- Protection for safety
- Selection and erection of equipment
- Inspection and testing
- Special installations or locations
