What is this qualification about?
This Certificate ensures you are up-to-date with the latest industry regulation on wiring and the safe use and operation of electrical equipment and systems. It covers the 17th edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations, which came into force in June 2008. These regulations are recognised by the British Standards Institute as a British Standard (BS7671).
Who is it for and why is this important to me?
If you’re a practising electrician, you must comply with the regulations for electrical work – this certificate helps you do that.
If you were certified for the previous edition of the IEE wiring regulations (which came into force in June 2001), you can take a one-day refresher course. If you are a newly qualified electrician or have not achieved a qualification against the last amendment or the 16th edition, you’ll need to complete the full course.
Successful completion of this course will give you a competitive edge and show your customers that you are trained to the highest of standards and increase your credibility.
