How will I learn and be assessed?
The 18th Edition Wiring Regulations course involves classroom-based training and there is no practical element. Our trainers help you learn in an informal and lively environment and are there to guide you and answer any questions that you, or other fellow trainers may have.
All candidates are assessed by completing a 60-question multiple choice online exam, which will cover all the regulations, and we will help you with your exam preparation to make sure that you are as ready as can for the assessment. The exam is ‘open book’ which means that throughout the duration of the two-hour exam, you will refer and use your 18th Edition book.
