Birmingham based 17th Edition Course encorporating Amendent No. 1
A new version of 17th Edition was published in July 2011 and will be enforced from January 2012.
All those currently using 17th Edition for work, or those who will need 17th Edition when they begin work will all need to take the now 2382-12 17th Edition course Birmingham in order to update their skills to comply with the new 17th Edition regulations.
All electricians who use 17th Edition skills will need to update their knowledge regardless of their current qualification level.
As a classroom only course, the 17th Edition Birmingham course does not include any practical aspects.
Alongside the features taught on the previous 17th Edition, the new course covers all elements of amendment 1 including the following:
New Section 444 - Measures against Electromagnetic disturbances:Any equipment such as lifts, transformers and fluorescent lighting can cause electromagnetic disturbances and this interference can damage IT equipment, components and circuits. This new section suggests recommendations to avoid and reduce electromagnetic disturbances.
New Section 534 - Devices for protection against overvoltage (surge protection): Transient voltages can have a peak value of 6kV. Lightning strike and electrical switching can give transient overvoltages to installations. This new section requires the installation of SPDs to limit transient overvoltages and divert surge current away from sensitive equipment.
New Section 710 - Medical locations: Strict measures are needed to ensure the safety of medical patients especially where they are likely to be subjected to the application of medical electrical equipment.
New Section 729 - Operating or maintenance gangways: Regulation 15 of the Electricity at Work Act requires working space, access and lighting to be correctly and adequately provided where work is being carried out. This new section includes requirements for gangway width, access, emergency access and emergency evacuation.
Appendix Six - Model forms for certification and reporting: Periodic inspection and testing is required because electrical installations can deteriorate over time. As legislation states that electrical installations should be maintained, periodic inspection and testing of installations is required.
Taking place on the third day of the course, the assessment consists of a two hour examination held at the training centre in Birmingham.
Once successfully completed, the 17th Edition amendment 1 Birmingham course allows candidates to carry out work to this regulation standard.
The 17th Edition Birmingham, incorporating amendment 1, is three days long in total.
