Becoming certificated to 17th Edition standard is a challenge.

Anyone wishing to become qualified to BS 7671 must pass the externally assessed and accredited City & Guilds 2382 examinations.

One problem for contractors wishing to fulfil this curriculum is that they either face a lengthy programme of evening classes or home study, or select a training provider that may not be up to standard.

Schneider Electric has taken a lead and dedicated a section of its website, endorsed by the the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), which covers abbreviated descriptions of all there is to know about the 17th Edition, complete with sample questions.

At the same time, the firm has introduced an intensive series of accredited courses designed to enable engineers to gain 17th Edition qualification.

Schneider Electric is committed to providing their customers with total solutions, which include comprehensive training programmes on applications, products and design, as well as on improving skills sets.
