The Electrical department at Coleg Cambria were delighted with the donation of Wiring Regulations BS7671.
Alex Robinson, an electrical installation lecturer at Coleg Cambria in North Wales has been in touch to tell us about a donation they recieved.
The North West branch of the ECA (Electrical Contractors Association) recently donated 15 copies of the latest edition (18th) of the Wiring Regulations BS7671 to the Electrical Department at Bersham Road.
Alex tells us: “Having the support of the ECA is great for the learners at Bersham Road because it makes them feel like part of the wider industry. The ECAs support at college events and donation of resources also gives the learners the sense that the industry cares about the next generation of Electricians coming through Coleg Cambria and wants them to be equipped with the up-to-date knowledge and equipment to rise to the challenge”
Owain Humphreys, Level 3 Learner at the college, said: “Students in our Level 3 Electrical Installation class are all very grateful indeed to the ECA for kindly donating copies of the 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations. This has saved students the not insignificant expense of purchasing copies for themselves – a particularly hefty burden for a full-time student or apprentice. Their generosity allows us to realise our ambitions.”
Recognising how important the development and support given to the young people entering the electrical industry, Andrea Birkett-Wilson, ECA Deputy Regional Manager – North West comments: “ECA was delighted to support the students of Coleg Cambria with a donation of the Wiring Regulations. Young people are absolutely vital to the future of our industry, and it is important to show people thinking about a career in the electrotechnical sector that apprenticeships can open many doors and lead to a well-paid and exciting career at the end. We hope that by giving students an insight into the inner workings of the Regulations, we can help light a spark in a their imaginations and help them explore a potential career in the industry.”
