Our Courses

Our 18th Edition Online Courses give you the flexibility to learn in a way that precisely suits your learning style, knowledge and experience. Our engaging content includes hours of video where we take you to real world installations which, not only brings the Wiring Regulations to life, but helps to reinforce your knowledge and understanding.

We dissect the Regs Part by Part, delving deeper to enhance your confidence when applying them in your day-to-day working life.

Custom Built BS 7671 Exam Simulator

Our courses also include unlimited access to our powerful exam simulator. The simulator randomly generates question sets from our massive database, weighted just like the formal exam*.

The simulator also incorporates several built-in study aids which enhance your learning by providing further help and insight. These include a question splits indicator which shows how long you’ve taken to answer each question and highlights whether you’re on target to comfortably complete the questions in the allotted time. Once you’ve completed a practice exam, you’ll receive feedback which will highlight your strengths and weaknesses, helping you to further target your study.

Our online solution provides a convenient, cost effective alternative to face-to-face classroom training.

This brand new, innovative online course is designed for anyone working in the electro-technical sector looking to achieve a Level 3 Award in the Requirements for Electrical Installations BS 7671: 2018 – commonly referred to as an 18th Edition or Wiring Regs qualification.

  • Requires no traveling or time off work.
  • Access from home, workplace or in between via 4G!
  • Allows learners to work through bitesize modules at a pace that suits.
  • Allows learners to revisit any part as many times as required.
  • Instant access to our online e-learning course, resources and community.
  • A comprehensive suite of modules that include many hours of high quality video (including much shot in relevant locations), animations and interactive exercises.
  • Self guided learning: Need more on a topic? Take a look at the supplimentary content. Feeling confident? Move on to the next topic.
  • Dynamic exam simulator with integrated results analysis.

Entry Requirements

We are offering a choice of 2 courses:

  • Full Online Course
  • Update Online Course
There are no formal entry requirements for the full course. However, it is generally accepted that learners should have good knowledge of electrical installation work and electrical science. The update course is designed for individuals who have a good working knowledge of the Regs and have a current qualification to BS 7671:2015


Our courses are suitable for individuals that require an understanding of BS 7671: practicing electricians, designers, consultants, electrical engineers, contracts managers, and other related trades.

Upon completion of the full course, individuals will be conversant with the format, content and application of the Requirements for Electrical Installations BS 7671:2018 (18th Edition). Upon completion of the update course, delegates will be conversant with the scope and nature of the changes from BS 7671:2015 - Requirements for Electrical Installations (17th Edition) Amd3 to BS 7671:2018 - Requirements for Electrical Installations (18th Edition).



To assist learners, the full course is constructed in such a way that allows more confident learners to work through the main learning content and then choose whether or not to delve into further learning opportunities. As such, the full course study time is expected to be around 12-15 hours for the more confident delegate, 20-25 hours for the average delegate and a little longer for anyone needing to revisit sections.

As this is an e-learning course, you can complete this training in convenient stages and revisit at times to suit your lifestyle, and our learning management system (LMS) will automatically record your progress.


In order to achieve a certificate in Requirements for Electrical Installations BS 7671:2018 (18th Edition) all delegates are required to complete a full 2 hour, 60 question exam which covers the whole book of Regulations. It is therefore strongly recommended that anyone who does not have a current 17th Edition Amd. 3 qualification, undertake the full course.

The final invigilated exam requires delegates to bring a copy of the Regulations with them for reference, and must be undertaken at a centre approved by an official Awarding Organisation such as City & Guilds or EAL.


We offer our online courses in a range of packages to suit all requirements both for individuals and corporations.

    What our customers say
    • Clear and Interesting

      I thought it (the 18th Edition Full Course) was very clear and delivered in a way that kept interest. The delivery was familiar and so, easy to understand. I liked the extra information that could be accessed, if required, and appeared relevant. The LearningLounge course was designed to make you familiar with the book and did that job very well. I would recommend it.

    • I scored 100%

      Many thanks. I scored 100% and I believe Peter (a colleague) scored 98%. Both of us found the (LearningLounge) material of good quality and very useful to be able to dip in and out around work commitments. I was very impressed with Trade Skills 4U (Leeds Exam Centre). Very professional, excellent facilities and very welcoming – a breath of fresh air for electrical training in my opinion. All in all very impressed, thanks again for the great service from Learning Lounge.
