    Direct Quote from City & Guilds FAQs: -"Will there be an assessment available to cover only the differences between the 2382-18 & 2382-22 edition? " No, an agreement was made between all Awarding Organisations and the JIB that all examinations based on BS 7671 should assess that candidates are able to demonstrate understanding of all parts, not just changes between editions. In terms of course delivery, centres may wish to offer ‘a CPD update’ course with a shorter duration. However, centres should take the necessary steps to ensure that candidates’ knowledge is up to date and sound before accepting them onto a shortened course. Candidates who take a shortened course will still need to sit the same assessment as candidates who take the full course."



  • Need extra time to revise?

    Please Note: Your exam will take place at the end of the course. However, if you feel you require additional study time, you may choose to come back at the end of the next course (Please inform your class tutor if you wish to delay your exam time until the end of the next available course) for more information refer to our website Terms & Conditions of Service
