Study at home for the Level 3 Award in the Requirements for Electrical Installations BS7671: 2018
As you’re reading this article, it’s safe to assume that you already know all about the changes to the Requirements for Electrical Installations qualification. As you probably know, the former 17th Edition qualification was replaced by the all new IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition qualification in July 2018. What you may not know is that, with the wonders of modern technology, you can now study for your electrical qualifications online, from the comfort of your own home and in your own time.
Here at XS Training, we’re acutely aware that it can be a challenge to squeeze a training course into your busy schedule. As a busy working electrician, or budding apprentice, attending a three-day course at an onsite training centre could be yet another time drain that keeps you away from your work or your family. Fortunately, via the wondrous internet, you can now take the 18th Edition – also known as the City & Guilds 2382-18 – course online.
In this article, we answer some frequently asked questions and shine a light on some of the important benefits of taking the 18th Edition course online.
Why should I take the 18th Edition course online?
Online electrical training is quite simply the most convenient, and easiest, way to gain your electrical qualifications. The ‘traditional’ way to gain electrical training qualifications is to attend a course at an onsite training centre. However, having to be physically present, at the specified times, means taking valuable time away from your work. I’m sure you don’t need us to point out the cost in lost revenue and potentially losing contracts.
Key advantages of studying the 18th Edition course online include:
- Study in your own time – the biggest benefit of online training is that you’re not tied down to having to study the course in a specific place, at specific times. With our online 18th Edition course, you can study when and where it’s convenient for you. Our training system is specially designed so that you can easily access it on the device of your choice, whether that’s your desktop computer, laptop or even your mobile phone. Study at home, at work, or in the local coffee shop, with online training you’re in control of your schedule.
- You don’t have to travel or take time off work – the biggest cost involved in an onsite training course is usually the time investment, including getting to and from the training centre.
