Although the course will cover all aspects of the Book, it will focus on new, altered or changed regulations and parts within BS7671, such as the introduction of the installation of Arc Fault detection Devices (AFDDs) in Chapter 42; Part 6 Inspection and Testing has been completely restructured; Part 7 has been modified in certain sections and a new section (730) for inland navigation vessels; and Part 8 Energy efficiency introduced. There have also been a few minor tweaks to the Appendixes. Although there are no prerequisites with this course, it would be beneficial to candidates to have some electrical installation knowledge and practical experience.

The assessment for the course is an online, open-book exam which is to be completed once the course modules and content have been studied. Candidates will receive a certificate issued by LCL Awards upon successful completion of the training and examination.
