AmTech launches 17th Edition Amendment 1 seminars
AmTech Power Software is to run a series of one day and evening seminars to explain the practical implications of Amendment 1 to the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations.The first round of events will be held in July and August 2011, following the publication of the confirmed amendments.
Located at venues throughout the UK, these seminars will prove ideal for anyone with a working knowledge of the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations, such as electrical contractors, engineers, designers and people who are registered in the Part P competence scheme.
The detailed one day seminars will be held in London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Swindon and Scarborough, with limited numbers for each course. These will be split into morning and afternoon sessions, with the afternoon due to focus on the completion of the new Electrical Installation Condition Report.
The initial three hour evening seminar in Burnley is being organised in association with City Electrical Factors’ Nelson Group and will deliver an overview of the changes in an informal environment.
