The Electrotechnical Certification Scheme accredits the qualifications and experience of workers in the electrotechnical industry. Home to the ECS Registered Electrician and ECS Check
A new assessment process to recognise existing skills and experience has been launched by the electrotechnical industry.
The ‘Experienced Worker Assessment’ (EWA) accredits occupational competence for people who have been working as an electrician for typically over five years but haven’t been able to complete an apprenticeship or achieve an equivalent Level 3 vocational qualification.
Two new enhancements have been added the Employer Portal and MyECS to support ECS card applications.
The enhancements will allow early card applications before the ECS HS&E assessment is passed and the introduction of a new review screen before a card order is finalised.

The Electrotechnical Certification Scheme’s ECS Check system is now operational and approved as a pilot that meets the Licence to Practise (LtP) requirements on government public sector construction contracts in Northern Ireland.
