Course Detail

The content of the 17th Edition online course covers the training specified in the 2382-12 course and also incorporates all the new features of amendment one. As part of the training programme, learners will cover all aspects of the previous 17th Edition alongside the new sections covered in Amendment one. This means that the course will teach to the current 17th Edition standard and allows successful learners to work to this level.

The new sections of 17th Edition Amendment one covered in this course are as follows:

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.

Mock Exam

Upon reaching the end of the online course there is also a realistic 60 question multiple choice exam based on past City and Guilds questions. The questions are rotated so that you can take the exam multiple times to be confident that when you sit the exam with us for real you’ll have had the preparation you need to pass the 2382-12.
