new course: electrical safety management
We know that there is a risk of injury when using electricity - but there are also issues such as disruption to business, financial penalties and prosecutions - which can impact on the positive aspects of day to day working. The IET have recognised this and have created a code of practice to give structure to managing electrical systems through safe principles of working. This course is intended for Engineering and Maintenance Managers and other employees who have responsibilities for policies / procedures or the allocation of work or the condition of equipment. The course does not require any previous electrical knowledge or experience.

new course: 17th Edition refresher/Update to the 3rd Amendment
The 17th Edition Amendment 3 Update / Refresher course is intended for anyone who already has the 17th Edition C&G qualification but needs an update on the requirements of Amendment 3 2015 and would also like a reminder of the technical issues in the Regs. It's a 1 day course and has a short slide presentation, a set of course notes for the candidates to take away, as well as the latest versions of the Electricians Guide books. There is a short multiple-choice assessment at the end of the course to make sure everyone has grasped the key points of the course.

Electricians Guide Books Updated to the 3rd Amendment of the 17th Edition
The latest Electricians Guide to Good Practice (Yellow cover) was released in March 2015 and the Guide to Inspection and Testing (Orange cover) also in March 2015. Both books have been updated to reflect the latest requirements of the 3rd Amendment to the 17th Edition of the IET Regulations.
We find that many engineers carry the books in their toolboxes / vans / pockets, as their small size makes this possible. The books therefore now have improved bindings and construction, making them more rugged and suitable for long-term use.
Improvements to the Guide to Good Practice book include easier to read tables using shading and larger sized text and an improved and expanded index. The internet page for the book has also been expanded to show example pages from the guide and a new 'latest update' feature, allowing the very latest information about intended changes or improvements to the guide to Good Practice to be posted on the page.
Improvements to the Guide to Inspection and Testing include easier to read tables using shading and larger sized text. The various forms (the Electrical Installation Certificate, the Periodic Inspection Report, the Minor Works Certificate, Inspection and Test Results Schedules) have all been re-drawn with example entries to allow for better use of the page and are now easier to read. A 'latest updates' feature has also been added to the internet page descriptions.
