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.
