Network Infrastructure Assessment

To apply for an ECS card as an Network Infrastructure Assistant the ECS Network Infrastructure Assistant assessment plus a valid ECS Health, Safety and Environmental (HS&E) assessment must be held.
The ECS HS&E assessment must be booked and taken separately from the Network Infrastructure Assistant assessment (although the two separate assessment may be taken consecutively at the same venue or both by remote invigilation online).
