Why do the 17th Edition Wiring Regulation course now?

Course Overview
(click to download)

The IET is the body which has responsibility for a range of Electrical Matters within the UK including setting the standard for the current Wiring Regulations BS7671.  The IET have recently confirmed that discussions & proposals for the anticipated 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations are well underway but the new Wiring Regulations book is not expected to be published until 1st July 2018 at the earliest.  Following the launch of the new Wiring Regulations book, the new standards will not become effective for probably around 6 months & examination boards such as C&G / EAL will have to develop new courses & new examinations.  It is generally estimated that it will be early 2019 be early 2019 before appropriate courses & examinations will be ready for people to attend.

Some companies who were planning to get their people qualified to the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations are now confused by talk of a new 18th Edition & are trying to decide what to do.

The New 2391 City & Guilds Inspection & Testing Qualification inc. 2391-50, 2391-51 & 2391-52

City & Guilds have this month (June 2017) re-launched the 2391 qualification with a bit of a twist.  There are now three versions of the 2391, the 2391-50 Level 3 Award in Initial Verification, the 2391-51 Level 3 Award in Periodic Inspection & the 2391-52 Level 3 Award in Inspection & Testing (combining both initial verification & periodic inspection elements) to form a 5 day course including exam. 

At the end of August 2017, registrations for the 2394 & 2395 will close, although delegates will have a further year (until the end of August 2018) to complete their qualifications & still receive certificates.

Why have C&G done this?

City & Guilds suggest that they have made the changes for many reasons but chiefly because industry understands the 2391  (which was the T&I qualification between 1995 & 2012) & without the 2.5 hour written paper they will be able to provide speedier results at a lower cost.  They also say that they have created the new qualifications in order to reflect what the industry competent persons schemes are accepting.

The more cynical among us may believe that C&G have woken up to the fact that they need to compete with the likes of EAL & it just so happens that the new 2391 qualifications follow the structure of  existing EAL equivalents, in that the written exam has been scrapped & the multiple choice exam is now open book.

This is good news for delegates, particularly the introduction of the combined 2391-52 qualification, although expect some confusion over the coming months.
