Questions and electrical advice in the Certification NICEIC, NAPIT, Stroma, BECSA Forum - Please feel free to post threads specifically about the certification companies we have in the UK:- This forum is to discuss the certification companies specifically. There are many. Gas Engineers have one. Not sure which is best to be honest. The many or the few. You will need to choose a prefix, so it has to be about one of the schemes. If it doesn't have an option, contact staff and we will stick it in our to-do list..

Had my annual visit today, passed so all good. Discussed when exactly i was meant to have the 18th edition, he said that actually i didnt need to do the course as there is quite a long window. As the NICEIC/Elecsa are allowing upto 2 years - yes 2 years for those already registered to get it as...

I'm used to the IET on-site guide but as I prepare to splash out on the latest edition i see the NICEIC site guides also being pushed. Anyone had experience of both ? Pros\ cons etc of either
