Hi Michael i was 15th edition in 1988 and left the industry.Came back last September and had to take the full 17th edition.If you were 16th edition before 2001 you need to sit the full exam.Hope this helps.Paul;)

hi, im in the same possition. i did 236 c&g to 16th edition standard in 1998. im then told few years down line, i have to sit latest 16th edition course. madness in my eyes as i was trained to 16th! annoyed me but did it to keep up and looks good on cv. didnt pay for it personally so i obliged obviously.
currently, if you did not sit 16th course in 2001 onwards, you have to sit full 17th course. luckily my 16th course was done in about 2002 so i only have to sit 17th exam :) the courses used to be one evening a week for a fortnight and then a multiguess exam. everyone flew it and passed first time. i was mega lucky and didnt revise at all and flew it but was 'fresh out of college'! wont be practising this method with 17th though as my brain has gone to mush over the last few years and i barely even use a calculator anymore!
check local building colleges too as these are often the best place if you do not have dedicated electrical colleges like leeds. avoid private firms though as they just let you sit the exam and you have no come back should you fail. college tutors are the daddy's and have been in the same possition as us all.
i nearly chose a private firm for my pat test course due to locality but found out their exam and certificate is a level of competance and not c&g accredited! if im payin, i want c&g-considering same price and recognised throughout the world.
all the best, martin
