    Just taken the 3 day course and and passed it 98%! Course was really good, would recommend it (premier training). Well worth doing the 3 day course as you brush up on everthing really, old and new stuff.

    Sod doing the course, just sit the exam and be done with it. Thats what I done, couple of hours off work and bang all done.

    Who insisted this course was compulsory to sit and who paid for it?

    I paid £480 for it, was supposed to be compulsary according to the training centre websites. Maybe there is a way round it but still worth doing if you can afford to, to brush up on the regs.

    £120 for the exam and only a few hours of work sounds better to me...

    But each to their own.

    I presume your talking about the full 17th ed bs7671 (the whole book) & not the update, if so you beat me sysparks. Just did mine 2 weeks ago £395 4 days inc exam & I got 96%. As my previous qualification was for the 16th in 1993 it was well out of date & as far as I know it is a requirement, at least for the NIC.

    Its the city and guilds 2382 wally. And yes it was the whole book so might not be the update like i said.

    There was only 2 of us doing course so we had a good trawl thru the regs back to front and inside out! Prob why i got a good score!!

    It would have been the 2382-10 like the one I did. there were 10 of us. Just got the proper certificate the other day The 1 day update I think is the 2382-20 At 64 some might think i was to old to do it, I certainly think I was the oldest in the class. I thought I better leave the zimmer frame at home though
