Major #Project18 roadshow announced by ECA

A series of free half-day events are set to be held across the country by ECA, to highlight the key changes in the 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations.

Each roadshow event, which is open to all ECA registered member businesses, will include a programme of CPD workshops delivered by ECA technical experts and leading industry manufacturers, designed to provide reliable information and advice on the 18th Edition of BS 7671.

ECA member businesses attending the roadshow will be able to obtain one free copy of the BS 7671 Wiring Regulations publication, which normally retails for £95 +VAT.

Attendees will also have access to subsequent training from Certsure and JTL at discounted rates. Details of these courses and information on training provision will be provided during the roadshow.

Steve Martin, ECA Director of Technical, commented: “ECA is delighted to announce the launch of our #Project18 roadshow. Our industry experts, many of whom played a significant role in developing the 18th Edition, will be on hand at every roadshow to help you get your business ready for the changes and answer any questions you may have.”
