94% pass rate for electricians taking vital 18th Edition Wiring Regulations exam

18 February 2019

Electricians working across the UK are celebrating after passing their 18th Edition Wiring Regulations (BS7671:2018) exams following expert led training from Develop Training Ltd (DTL).

The national qualification is a 'must' for everyone working as an electrician - from those new to the industry, those working in an associated trade or experienced electricians who need to update their qualifications.

Celebrating success with a huge 94% pass rate

Successful candidates on both DTL's one day refresher and three day full course were trained by expert electricians with years of industry experience, able to take the theory of the guidelines and relate it to skills used when carrying out electrical installation work, both in a domestic and a commercial setting. Small class sizes also ensure plenty of individual attention and advice. Together this has resulted in a huge 94% pass rate - something for both the candidates and DTL to smile about!

What are the 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations?

The 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations book was published last summer and the regulations came into force on 1 January 2019, with the latest qualification demanded by many major employers. The wiring regulations apply to the design, erection and verification of electrical installations, as well as additions and alterations to existing installations. The 18th Edition has introduced comprehensive changes to the previous edition in areas including protection against over-voltages and fire as well as electrical embedded-heating. A new section covering energy efficiency has also been introduced. Overall, the regulations set requirements and operating criteria for the UK and are recognised by the British Standards Institute as a British Standard (BS 7671).
