Course Contents

The 18th Edition Update course covers the main changes to BS 7671:2018+A2:2022.

The main changes within Amendment 2 are to reflect the ever-changing demands to meet both consumers’ and the Governments commitments to achieve net-zero emission by 2050. This is reflected in a whole new section (Part 8)  Prosumer Low Voltage Electrical Installations.

The Prosumer is someone who both produces and consumes electricity.

Other major updates include:

  • Changes to fire safety requirements
  • Arc Fault Detection Devices (AFDDs)
  • Protection against over voltages
  • Changes in part 7 – Special locations
  • New section – Part 8 Prosumer Low Voltage Electrical Installations.


Assessment for this course takes the form of a 60-question multiple-choice examination (it is the same as the Full 18th Edition City & Guilds 2382-22 course exam).


Those successfully passing the online course and exam will receive a City & Guilds 18th Edition Wiring Regulations – 2382-22 qualification.

Progression and Development

Those successfully passing the course and exam will be able to move on to study further electrical qualifications if desired.


Anyone wanting to study the 18th Edition Update course must have already obtained the 18th Edition 2382-18 Certificate. We will require proof of this before we can enrol you on to this course.
