Following the publication of the 3rd Amendment to BS 7671:2008, the IET Wiring Regulations, we have developed our online training course to help you get up to speed with the changes.
Developed in partnership with sector specialists NICEIC and ELECSA, this interactive course guides contractors through all the relevant changes and arms them with all the information they need to know in simple, easy to follow chapters.
By completing this module, you will understand the requirements of Amendment 3, 2015, as applied to BS7671:2008, Requirements for Electrical Installations.
A new British Standard incorporating this amendment will be designated, entitled BS7671:2008(2015), and will be introduced on 1st January 2015.
