A. Will I need additional training or new qualifications?

During the transition period electrical contractors will be expected to demonstrate that they are enhancing their knowledge and understanding of the new standards. The best possible way to demonstrate this would be to complete an 18th Edition training course which we will be offering as soon as possible.

Qualified supervisors should be able to demonstrate a strong understanding and practical application of the 18th Edition.

A. What happens to any training I have already booked?

The 18th Edition examination will not be available until July 2018 upon release of the new standards. All exams that are undertaken prior to July 2018 will be compliant with the 17th Edition Amendment 3.
