A 1 day training course designed to upgrade those who have previously completed a 17th Edition IET Wiring Regulations (3rd amendment) course, to the latest IET Wiring Regulations standard.
To be eligible for this course learners must provide proof of 17th Edition 3rd amendment training; only a DTL attendance certificate or a City & Guilds 2382-15 certificate will be accepted.
Please note that all learners will be required to take the full 18th Edition examination. DTL strongly recommend that, unless a learner has recently undertaken a 17th Edition (3rd amendment) training course, they should attend the full 3 day 18th Edition course.

What do I need to bring with me?
- Learners should bring a calculator, a copy of BS7671 18th Edition Wiring Regulations and the On Site Guide.
- Learners can also bring with them any materials used by their employer, copies of risk assessments or management systems so that they can see how their materials fit in to the context of the training.
N.B. Learners may insert page tabs and highlight text within their own copies of BS7671:2018, but must not add additional notes, other than any issued by the IET as a Corrigendum. If additional notes are written in, then DTL is obliged to provide learners with a ‘clean’, un-tabbed copy for the exam.
