WE HAVE RE-OPENED AND ARE READY TO WELCOME YOU BACK

Due to social distancing and space allocation within the training room, we are limiting up to 9 delegates per course
until further notice. 
Social distancing/health & safety requirements will be in place, following government guidelines. 

Thank you for your patience during this Covid-19 Pandemic and the closure of our training centre over the past three months. 

We now look forward to getting back to business as usual and used to the 'new normal'.

The health & safety of our delegates and staff is paramount and we did not want to re-open the training centre without ensuring everything was in place prior to opening.

Kind regards

Graham Wretham, Managing Director

The previous one-day update course that training centres provided from 16th to 17th was aimed at electricians having a sound knowledge of the Regulations.  However, from our experience we found that for many delegates this wasn't the case, as electricians are busy installing electrical installations without daily reference to the Wiring Regulations.

 

Therefore, we consider that any update course would not be suitable for many delegates undertaking the course and that all learning objectives could not be met, which is against our training principles.  In response to the awarding bodies announcement that only the full course examination will be available, Redford Charles are providing this qualification as a four-day course, one day a week over four weeks, with the exam held in the afternoon of the last day.

Any assessments by your competency scheme assessors, such as NICEIC and ELECSA, will be expecting you to now work to the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations.

We have copies of 18th Edition publications for sale:

Wiring Regulations £95, Guidance Note 3 £35, On-Site Guide £30 = £160  

We are selling with all three publications fro £140 (£20 discount)

 

Due to social distancing and space allocation within the upstairs training room, we are only allowing 8 delegates per course until further notice.  Social distancing/health & safety requirements will be put in place and we will advise you of these and further details by email in due course.  Spaces will be offered on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
