Prove your competence with the ECS card
The CSCS-affiliated card for the electrical industry
Whether a technically qualified operative or manager or just starting out at trainee level, if you are
involved in electrical work you need to be able to demonstrate your competence to the industry standards.
ECS is the occupational card scheme for UK electrotechnical workers. An ECS card demonstrates your competence
and shows evidence of your training against the recognised standards for the electrical industry. There are
currently over 100,000 registered ECS cards holders in the UK.
Holding an ECS card proves your identity, your qualification status and main electrical occupation, your
awareness of UK health & safety, as well as any additional disciplines in which you are skilled to work.
ECS stands for Electrotechnical Certification Scheme – and the scheme is recognised by and affiliated to
the CSCS for Construction workers as the equivalent competence card scheme for the specialist electrotechnical
workforce in the UK.
