NAPIT Support Petroc College on Amendment 3

NAPIT Support Petroc College on Amendment 3

NAPIT have recently delivered a presentation on Amendment 3 to the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations to lecturers and students at Petroc College in Devon.

With Amendment 3 being such an important topic for the electrical industry, lecturers at the college were keen to see how the changes would affect current and prospective students and to understand the changes better in order to teach their courses effectively. On 22nd April, NAPIT Regional Inspections Manager, Paul Chaffers, delivered an informative presentation on the changes and answered any burning questions attendees had on the Wiring Regulations.

Martin Cheetham, an Electrical Engineering lecturer at Petroc College, said: The event, facilitated by NAPIT, was extremely useful for the continued personal development of provided Petroc Staff and local employers/employees. This included providing electrical contractors, maintenance electricians and electrical wholesales colleagues with the necessary updates, information and guidance to successfully address, implement and demonstrate compliance with Amendment 3. The Northern Devon Learning Community was grateful for the opportunity to discuss the changes and implications and to ask pertinent questions.

Mark Pearce, NAPIT's Business Manager, said: Since the announcement of Amendment 3, NAPIT has strongly advocated training for installers on how the changes affect the work they undertake. We continue to be proactive in supporting colleges on the changes to the Wiring Regulations and we look forward to continuing to deliver these seminars up and down the country.
