The material for this course has been broken down into several smaller lessons, each lesson dealing with a specific area of the overall subject.

What another load of old ******** to dig more money out of the poor electrician just trying to make a living. Why Don't these course makers get a ****ing proper job and leave us qualified sparks alone.
Surely it is the IET you need to direct this at?!

Course providers only provide a means to carry out the updaes.

Don' t fancy 3 days of class room myself just hoping to take the test when up to speed.
 
Can you confirm that this will be a city and guilds exam and what is the dates for Aberdeen in July / August?

Can the course material be watched more than once? I can only manage a couple of hours per day max, might need refresh stuff from the beginning after two weeks of studying

In the country that I came from you buy a copy of the Regs ring bound, the updates are free pages you insert / replace. You are responsible to ensure that you have an updated copy and the Regs are Statutory !
 
I too, would like to know if the materials are rewatch-able. Info doesn't always sink in the first time
 
I like that you still have to go to a centre to do exam which still means travel and loss of earnings

My understanding, is that you will have access to the online material for a year?

Unfortunatly thats the only way they can verify its you doing the exam and that your not cheating, still not as bad as a full week off to do the whole course though

I can buy an online course from a reputable supplier for £195 including VAT, so your course at £240 +VAT discounted doesn't seem so desirable!?

Hi Roly, the £240 is for full course and includes the exam which can be taken at various locations throughout the UK, this is a very competitive price and is NOT the one day update course etc..

Does that course include the exam?
There’s a few out there offering the course, but the exam is extra.
 
The nearest "approved test centre " are some 50 miles away from me and bar stewards to get to (the main reason I don't live in a city in the first place).
I suppose us country folk are less profitable than the city dwellers.

We are offering full course on 18th edition as there is not an update exam and only the full two hour exam available by all awarding bodies (City & Guilds/EAL etc) .

We offer full 18th edition course and exam at more than 30 locations throughout the UK for £240 plus vat.

Many people will be tempted to take up the offer of the "update course" but will need to be aware that the update courses being offered will concentrate only on the changes from 17th to 18th edition and that the candidates will then need to successfully complete the full two hour exam for the 18th edition. This may be okay for many candidates, however, you will need to be aware that the update course will not be providing you with all of the information you require to successfully complete the full two hour exam...
