Card information

You must apply directly via the NICEIC or ELECSA for this card…

NICEIC and ELECSA 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 NICEIC and ELECSA verify the applicant's QS status.

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

This card is only valid while the company remains registered with the NICEIC or ELECSA and the cardholder remains the company QS.
