About the author

Steven Devine has a passion for providing students with a clearer understanding of the importance of standards and regulations – who is actually responsible for them and how much voluntary time is contributed from experts from the electrotechnical industry.

Steven came to the IET from an educational background, having lectured at Cambridge College. He also serves as Secretary to Panel C Shock Protection, one of the four panels that makes up the decision-making committee behind the IET Wiring Regulations, JPEL/64.

NEW: Job Profile Bank

We are keen to show young electricians the breadth of jobs they can do with their electrical qualifications, so we have set up this Job Profile Bank here on the Student’s Hub. This is an ongoing project so there will be more job roles being added over the coming months. We have interviewed real people doing these jobs to give you an insight into what their jobs are really like.
