We are often asked if there will there be an assessment available to cover only the differences between the 17th and 18th edition?   the short answer is no, an agreement was made between all Awarding Organisations and the JIB that all examinations based on BS 7671 should assess that candidates are able to demonstrate understanding of all parts, not just changes between editions.

There are no formal entry requirements, but candidates should be literate in the terminology used in an electrical engineering environment and have a basic knowledge of the technical aspects of electrical systems in domestic, commercial or industrial installations.    

On the course candidates will study:

- Detailed examination of all parts of BS 7671;
