17th Edition City & Guilds 2382-10

(Certificate in the Requirements for Electrical Installations BS7671:2008 Level 3)
Course overview
The City & Guilds 17th Edition 2382-10 is a vital qualification necessary for all electricians or people working within the electrical industry who need the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations qualification to serve as proof of their knowledge of the electrical regulations. The City & Guilds 17th Edition qualification is commonly acknowledged as the widely recognised qualification that is required by most employers. It is a requirement as it demonstrates that the individual has a thorough understanding of the regulations and proves that they posses current levels of knowledge.

The overall intention of the City & Guilds 17th Edition electrical course is for the individual to be able to understand, interpret and apply the contents within the meaning of the regulations and to gain the awareness of where to find particular information within regulations.

The structure, the contents and how the regulations within the BS 7671 (2008) 17th Regulations Edition apply are taught extensively throughout and the course is entirely theory and classroom based. The course involves no practical training, but it covers all the regulations through clear examples of when and how they apply in typical situations.

The course also covers the updated IEE ‘On-Site Guide’ where all students will be taught how this book can be used alongside the BS 7671regulations book. The course culminates with each student sitting the City and Guild 2382 multiple choice online examination in our assessment suite which, for successful candidates, leads to the achievement of the Certificate in the Requirements for Electrical Installations BS7671:2008 (Level 3).
Who is this qualification for?
Even thought there are no entry requirements to attend this course. We would only advise that the individual should have at least some prior knowledge of electrical principles and electrical theory. This is because the course uses common electrical terminology and uses practical examples of how the regulations apply. If you are in any doubt as to your suitability then please call. The course is ideally designed for anyone already involved in domestic, commercial or industrial electrical installations but can be undertaken by people without technical experience.
You will gain the highest standard of achievement
This City & Guilds 17th Edition Course of the Wiring Regulations requires the candidate to prove their knowledge by examination consisting of 60 multiple choice questions. The exam is classed as "open book" and is carried out via computer at our testing facility using the cIty & Guilds GOLA system. The advantage of this is that all candidates will be given their results after completing their test. Successful candidates will achieve the City & Guilds 2382-10 certificate. Our current success rate is 96% for this examination.
