NICEIC, ELECSA and JTL have formed a partnership aimed at ensuring electrical contractors have the widest choice of training courses in the country for the upcoming 18th Edition changes.
The 18th Edition standard will be published on July 1, 2018, leading to the need for more training support. Electrical contractors will be given a six month transition period to get up to speed with the changes.
From January 1, 2019, it will then be a requirement that all electrical installations designed after this date comply with BS 7671:2018, 18th Edition (2018).
“Helping more customers to gain confidence and understanding of the changes is the reason we have entered into this training partnership,” commented Certsure’s CEO Emma Clancy.
“It means we will be able to meet contractors training needs in more centres across England and Wales than ever before – saving contractors both time and money.”
JTL operates nine of its own centres, and has access to more than 100 training locations throughout England and Wales, whilst NICEIC and ELECSA have access to 80% of the country’s electricians. NICEIC and ELECSA presently manage two dedicated electrical training centres in the UK and have access to another 10 centres.
The collaboration between the organisations means they will be able to provide 18th Edition training at more locations and to more contractors than ever before.
NICEIC, ELECSA and JTL are currently developing training programmes that will ensure electricians can benefit from the latest training delivery methods. This will include a mixture of classroom and online courses to suit all needs.
