If you are looking to join a trade scheme such as NICEIC or Select or would like to apply for or renew your SJIB ECS card, you’ll require the 18th edition qualification.
18th Edition course exams & assessment
Once you’ve completed your 18th Edition training at our centre in Edinburgh, you’ll undertake a 2-hour online multiple-choice test. The assessment is open book and you’ll be able to take your 18th Edition Regs book into the assessment. You will have two minutes per question to complete your assessments, so a sound understanding of the manual is required.
If you have passed your 17th Edition since the last amendment was published, then you’ll only need our 1-day 18th Edition Update Course.
Some of our clients who trust us with their training:
