It's time to act now, nothing lasts forever and to make room for new material we must remove content which has been hosted for more than 12 months.  


This means webinars such as Electric Vehicle charging and the first amendment to BS7671:2018, EICR coding in line with 18th edition, BS 5839–6 and RCD types and testing are about to be archived.  

 
Once this has happened, we will be unable to issue CPD certificates for these courses even if you have viewed this session. It is therefore vital that you take steps now and ensure you download and save your personalised certificates. Click here for information on how to save your certificates.
