Welcome to the Electrotechnical Certification Scheme (ECS) website

The ECS card displays the qualifications and status of electrical professionals – allowing clients and employers to view the cardholder's industry skills, qualification levels, occupation and identity when working on site.

The ECS is affiliated to the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS). So when people say they need a CSCS card - the ECS card is the one that’s relevant to the electrotechnical industry.
