66: A firefighters view on the premature collapse regulation - A SparkyNinja Webinar
This is a recording of a webinar given on the 7th April 2020. I strongly recommend you find the time to watch this on YouTube https://youtu.be/jm9AY_bt4Uk
Phil puts his old firefighters hat on and discusses with us the introduction of the regulations regarding the measures to prevent premature collapse of wiring systems.
We'll discuss the history which caused the regulation, the current applications and what its actually like to be in an installation with premature collapsed cabling.

64: 2396 qualification discussion
We get a lot of inquiries with regards to the 2396 design qualification and many people are failing the exam when they've gone to other training providers.
So Phil and I wanted to discuss the qualification and go through the chief examiners reports to see what the common problems are.
