Looking to stay compliant with the Electrotechnical Certification Scheme? We've got you covered!
As you may already know, the Electrotechnical Certification Scheme (ECS) is driving everyone in the Electrical industry to participate. We understand that keeping up with these changes can be a challenge. That's why we want to update you on how we can support you in staying compliant.
If you or someone working for you has been in the industry for less than five years without relevant Electrical Qualifications, your next step would be to complete a 2365 Electrotechnical Level 2 course. This course runs for 30 weeks (1 day per week), and upon completion, your next step would be the 2365 Electrotechnical Level 3 and your onsite performance portfolio. This will make you eligible to complete your AM2 assessment, and by completing the up-to-date BS7671-22, you will be compliant to apply for an ECS card and the ECS Check scheme.
Suppose you completed your qualifications before 1995 and there was no NVQ or AM2 element in your training, or you have been a practising electrician in the industry for 5+ years. In that case, you can complete your free skills scan for the experienced worker route. To meet the scheme requirements and the experienced worker route onsite performance portfolio, you will require the 2391-52 Inspection and Testing (if you don't currently hold this) and 18th Edition BS7671 amendment 2 (if you don't currently hold this). This will make you eligible to complete your AM2 assessment and be compliant to apply for an ECS card and the ECS Check scheme.
At Tungsten Training Centre, we are committed to helping you keep up with the latest industry changes and stay compliant with the ECS Check scheme. Let us support you in achieving your goals and advancing in your career. Contact us today to learn more about our courses and services.
