Card information

You must apply directly via the ECA for this card…

The ECA has partnered with JIB to offer Qualified Supervisors (QS) employed by ECA member businesses, the opportunity to apply for an ECS Gold Card. This route uses a QS’s long term experience and technical assessment history to demonstrate their eligibility to apply.

The ECA can offer Qualified Supervisors the opportunity to apply for an ECS gold card and be recognised as an Approved Electrician (Installation Electrician) under the rules of the ECS.
The qualification requirements for the QS card are the same as for a standard ECS Gold Card. The ECA verify the applicant's QS status.

In addition, Qualified Supervisors with an ECA member business who do not meet the set qualification routes can apply if they have represented the business in three consecutive assessments with the ECA and had a successful outcome on each.

This card is only valid while the company remains an ECA member business and the cardholder remains the company QS.
