Prove your competence with the ECS card
If you’re working in the Electrotechnical Industry you need to get your hands on an ECS card.
It’s now almost impossible to gain access to a construction site without proof of identification, your
competence and qualification levels.
The ECS card solves this problem. ECS stands for Electrotechnical Certification Scheme - it's the sole ID
and competence card scheme for Electrotechnical operatives in the UK, and it's recognised and endorsed
by the industry.
Holding an ECS card means you can prove your identity, your qualified status and your occupation when
working on-site. It is affiliated to the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS). So when people
say that you need a CSCS card - this ECS card is the one that's relevant to the Electrotechnical Industry.
