The NICEIC and ELECSA will be transmitting a live talk on the 18th Edition, which will be beamed via satellite to 40 cinema screens simultaneously, on 4th July 2018.
Tickets cost £5 and can be booked online, with the event being streamed through Vue, Odeon, Showcase and Omniplex Cinemas.
Marketing Director at NICEIC and ELECSA, Mark Smith, commented: “The upcoming launch of the 18th Edition will be an important time for every electrician across the UK.
“We wanted to do something unique, affordable and easily accessible to help contractors gain an improved insight into the forthcoming changes. This will be a genuine world first. It has never been attempted on this scale anywhere in the world before. It is something we are sure every electrician across the nation will want to see.”
The 18th Edition seminar will be broadcast from the Faraday Theatre, in The Royal Institution. Hosted by industry experts Darren Staniforth and Alan Wells the talk will focus on the changes included in the new regulations and what it will mean for electricians in day-to-day work.
Darren commented: “When the 17th Edition was launched in 2008, a lot of industry myths emerged because multiple messages were communicated by different speakers. The advantage of broadcasting to all four corners of the UK on a single day is that we can communicate a single, consistent message to the industry. We believe this will benefit the whole industry and increase safety standards as a result.”
There will also be audience contributions from some of the biggest names in the industry, including representatives from JPEL 64 and its sub-committees, who are responsible for writing the new regulations.
The seminar will be broadcast live to over 40 screens across the UK with a full list of all participating cinemas now online at the website.
Mark added: “We wanted to film it at an iconic venue. The Faraday Theatre is a historic lecture hall where Sir Michael Faraday demonstrated his discoveries to the public in 1824. NICEIC and ELECSA will be delivering its talk about the 18th Edition, in the same theatre, 194 years later.
“We aim to reach as many people as possible and will have a live link-up with all the cinema screens. We plan to invite everyone in the industry to attend, as it will be of value to everyone from apprentices through to time-served electricians.”
