Why Take 17th Edition Qualification Courses?

Any electrician who is currently involved in installations, repair or maintenance work must ensure that they have completed 17th edition courses.

If a trainee electrician wants to achieve a City & Guilds qualification in order to become fully certified to work on the most current wiring regulations, it is vital that they take 17th edition courses.

It is a legal requirement that electricians are proficient in the IEE Wiring Regulations 17th edition before they can perform jobs such as repairing, adapting or replacing existing wiring.

As the 16th edition wiring regulations were published in 1991, anyone who wants to adhere to the most recent building codes must make certain that they are fully aware of the information contained within the official 17th edition book.

The IEE Wiring Regulations is an electrician's bible because it acts as a constant reference point for nearly all aspects of their work from basic household wiring installations to large commercial projects.

The publication of the most recent regulations has made numerous important differences and subtle changes to the way electrical installations and repairs are performed.

It is also important to note that the structure of the book has significantly changed in an attempt to make it more streamlined and easier for readers to understand the most recent industry requirements.

All practising electricians should be aware of at least the contents of the latest regulations publication so that they can quickly fined the required information for the job they are performing.

Basic awareness is what all training centres will attempt to teach when providing education about the 17th edition regulations and those attending these courses will come away with this knowledge and be able to put it into practice.

The most obvious changes contained within the latest wiring regulations involve the fact that socket outlets are allowed in bathrooms as long as they are at least three metres from a bath or shower.

Course attendees can also learn about how to perform wiring work at specific locations such as exhibitions, fairgrounds, amusement parks, and marinas while there is also detail relating to solar photovoltaic technologies.

Achieving the City & Guilds 2382 qualification in the Requirements for Electrical Installations BS 7671 is an industry requirement for those electrical trainees who want to register onto a Part P scheme.

The BS 7671 covers everything from the design to the construction and development as well as the verification of all electrical installations and systems.
