MCP is offering a training course that aims to ensure installations comply with the Electricity at Work regulations. 

Although the 17th Edition of the IET Regulations is non-statutory, the company maintains that compliance with them ensures that installations comply with the EaWR. The recent amendments in 2008 and most recently 2011 have included a multitude of changes and tradesmen are encouraged by the organisation to remain up to date, to ensure that they are not working and testing to the wrong specifications.
