Evening,

I am looking for some guidance.
I am going to be taking my c&g 2382-10, 2392-10, and EAL 006, starting in Aug and finishing in Oct. Could anyone point me in the right direction for books, learning aids that may be of use before I sit the course and exam? Please post if you have found anything useful while training etc.

I see alot of people here are retraining to become an electrician so this might help out some other people aswell.

Cheers in advance,

I havent got any experience in domestic electrics but I have been doing electronics.
I am looking to get some work experience with an electrician starting next month. To help me out for the exams and to get a bit of know how.
Im 26 so I am hoping this is the right career change for me :)

You didnt fancy the 2330 route?
That would take too long, Im due to leave the services in nov so I havent got that much time. It is something I will be doing in the future I think.

Thanks Scotty I have already bought the 17th edition wire regs and have the on site guide for 16th edition. I have also recently bought the electricians guide to building regs also.

I was wondering if the exam success books are worth while also.

Hi sparky wannabe

I just completed my courses EAL, 17th Edition and testing and inspection. my background same as you.

my advice to you is buy the books and study in advance.
Books list:
EAL - Electricians guide to the building regulations ( including approved document P)
17th edition - Requirements for electrical installtion BS 7671 2008
PIR - Practical guide to inspection, testing and certification of Electrical institute.

Guidance note 3. i think the 17th edition already out.

you dont need the onsite guide book for the exam ( it base on 16th edition) beside on the 1st July 2008 17th edition will apply. if i was you wait till September then buy the lates edtion. It is a good book, only require when you join with the governor body.

I also found the Exam success IEE wiring regulations 2382- 10 help alots.

good luck..!!!

cheers Hungy and everyone else.
I have now got my order in with Amazon and hopefully they should be here next week.
I would still like to get some "on site" experience, and i might have the chance with a guy around here. We shall hope and see.

Hungy,
what tester did you buy? Im thinkin of fluke 1652 but i have heard that they arent the easiest to learn with.

I am using fluke 1653.....it had same funtions as 1562....the only advantage is you can download informations data into computer. it very handy if you do alots oj jobs and want to save all data. 1563 cost more and also you have to buy the software to go with it...i recommend if you have extra cash to flash......

Shakey,
I expect the courses are being run by the Forces Resettlement Training Centre at Aldershot.
They provide 17th ed, 2391 and the Dom Install EAL course to service leavers.
Whilst I share your trepidation about intensive courses, most service leavers managing to get on these (well oversubscribed) courses have a service background in Electronics/Electrics, and these courses allow a servicemen to leave with some "civvy" quals to help the transition from service life.
I did however think that entry onto the courses required some previous experience....clearly the earlier poster is green as grass. (Maybe him looking for a suitable meter is a little previous....i would think that the courses will be seriously hard for someone with little previous knowledge, and there's a good chance of failure?)
A little worrying perhaps that someone could be out there after four weeks training re-wiring an old dear's house...........

I am doing the courses with Steve Willis training, not aldershot.
I wont be going into the courses "green"
I have 12 weeks of work where I will be working alongside an electrician. As I have stated before I have done elctronics.
Once I have left the services I will also be applying for the 2330 course.
You obviously have some knowledge of service leavers and perhaps are one your self. If this is the case then you know as well as anyone how hard it is to go from military to civvy life.
