Contractors Energised at TechTalk Events

With eight shows still to go, NICEIC and Elecsa’s latest TechTalk series has already been attended by a record number of electricians.

Over 1,700 contractors have registered to attend the 15 regional shows happening across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The NICEIC and Elecsa team are now gearing themselves up for the second phase of the series, which will see them visit the final eight locations of the series.

Darren Staniforth, Group Senior Technical Presenter for NICEIC and Elecsa, says, “We’ve had a great response to the series so far. This is solely down to the willingness of our contractors, who want to expand their knowledge and progress in this forever changing industry. Our TechTalks are a great opportunity for our contractors to talk to us directly and discuss the latest developments in the industry and find out first-hand issues they want us to look at”.

More than 200 contractors attended each event in Wadebridge, Norfolk, Leeds and Chelmsford with other locations also proving popular.

This year’s TechTalk series are now CPD accredited, meaning attendees can use information from the day as part of their ongoing professional development.

Topics on the agenda include: BS 5839 part 6; OLEV registration and EV update; EICR coding, in line with the 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations; a technical Q&A; and much more.

Tickets cost just £25 and can be booked online at or by calling 0333 015 6626.

Each event starts at 8am and finishes at 1pm. Every delegate that attends gets a breakfast roll and refreshments throughout the day, a complete set of 18th Edition electrical pocket guides, and a personalised CPD certificate.
