Why Take the City and Guilds 2382-15 17th Edition Course?

It is an absolute essential for anyone involved with electrical installations at any point to have a fundamental understanding of the latest 17th Edition Wiring Regulations.

Although mainly aimed at domestic installers and electricians, this course is also highly recommended for those involved with electrical work including contract managers, designers, electrical engineers, consultants, surveyors and any other related trades. It is also an essential to ensure you are working to the current standards, so those with a prior qualification will also need to consider updating their knowledge to ensure full compliance with the latest Wiring Regulations.

Based on the comprehensive syllabus outlined by City and Guilds, our 2812-15 course ensures you gain this understanding and gain an accredited, recognised qualification to prove it afterwards.
