    If your part of a scheme then they will probably want you to have it.
    It doesn’t take affect until January so you don’t need it until then.

    No need to shout Mate, I suppose to be compliant you will need to become 18th edition qualified, as it is with the 17th, I think some of the scamschools are advertising courses as we speak.

    What I find annoying is reading if you have 17th A3 then 1 day course, but if you are 17th but prior to A3, then 3 day course. What is that all about, apart from a scam to charge more for something I don't need?

    If you are self employed & run your own business, I think its a given. If you're an employee its what you employer degrees, or future employer sees as essential qualification or not.

    I think these particular 'courses' are all a bit of a scam. Its an exercise on how to use a publications contents & index, and a time set aside for an exam. There's no instructional content, the learning you have to do yourself.

    As you say Middy an excercisein how to navigate a books contents, plus how to pass an exam, no learning content whatsoever, they are a required element, as wellas being a licence to print money for the scam schools.

    It's an unnecessary expense given the minor changes ....

    I wouldn't mind if they actually taught you something. When I did my 17th, I spent my own time reading researching, doing mock exams, before going on the course.

    I know there's some on here who say its a walk in the park, thats not the point, still paying with hard earnt cash.

    Not being funny :))), a JIB card requires you to do a H&S exam, not quite the same or in depth as BS7671, but no less important. Price £30 for a multi choice exam, and they will send you a booklet with all the questions & answers.

    From my own minimal research on the matter, the 18th comes out on July 2nd, but doesn't come into effect until 18 months later. That's January 2020.
    You've got plenty time to get the qualification.

    Theres a whole new section 8 been added. That's hardly a "minor" change.

    It is not mandatory... but certainly advantageous to have.
