I'll find out, but, it should not be.

There are conflicting comments and I would not trust the wholesalers TBH.

There should be another 3 updates at least.

 

However, I have read an interview with a member of the BS7671 committee that suggests that the 18th is in preparation.

 

I have also read, from a less reliable source that a standard can only be amended twice, I have standards that have been amended more than that!!!

 

It might take a month or two, but I will find out...

It's only 4 years since I coughed up £285 (plus £65 for the BGB !) to do the 17th :red card

The Revo got away lightly ..........£400  the 17th course  cost me  + the BRB  which is now redundant   ( And I was finding my way round that quite well too !!)  

 

What the hell is going on with so many alterations .......it has to be a rip off  !!!!!

I seem to remember something about the two updates them third strike is a new edition? Think it was on an IET download video?

Sidey knows people in high realms of IET!

Because the "industry" is not interested in the opinions of the rank & file, it never has been and never will be, it is only interested in the opinions of people "in power" in the industry, on committees, working for scams, manufacturers etc.

The rank and file members of the industry, the scams, and the IET are irrelevant in the opinion of those on "the committee".

Probably LFB have spoken and thus that's what will happen.

 

Should be called the LFB 18th edition when it comes out.

I had a touch then when I did my 17th down at East Surrey College. £230 all in inc the BRB and that damn great thick ring bound NICEIC learning guide. As I already had both books it was £130. There was some subsidy thing going on. Right place / right time etc I guess.

 

The alternative I think was 12 evenings at Gravesend for I think £480 (or was it £680?). The lecturer was btw John Elliott.

Yes sorry Andy you are right it is 3, but, I don't believe it.

 

Going to start investigations when my contact is back in work the week after next, but it will be a slow process.

Slidey is right ...the opinions of the rank and file , ie:   you & me , count for nothing in our industry,  never has , never will .

 

A similar thing with the old electrician's union , back in the day , couldn't give a phlying phart about their contracting members ...only the  engineering  maintenance type sparks  at car plants , car plant suppliers  & the ( back then) giant industrial engineering companies employing thousands.
