Welcome to the world of the ECS Labourer Card.

The ECS Labourer Card is a must for anyone looking to start or further their career as an electrician. The ECS Labourer Card indicates you have met the minimum requirements to assist qualified electricians in electrical installations. Those holding an ECS Labourer Card must work under supervision whilst completing electrical installations, ensuring safety and efficiency. 

Often, it isn’t easy and takes time to meet the criteria of advanced card programs such as the JIB Gold Card. Therefore ECS stepped in with the Labourer Card, providing a valuable opportunity for newcomers, trainees and those looking to start out in the electrical industry. This intervention serves those aspiring to reach the peak of the electrical industry to become a fully qualified electrician and gain a JIB Gold Card

There are two routes available for candidates to gain an ECS Labourer Card. Route 1 is the qualified route, and this path will depend greatly on whether you already hold any of the approved JIB theory qualifications (all outlined below). Route 2 is most likely the route you will need to take, completing an ECS recognised Health & Safety Course. Our SPA Health & Safety Core Day is a recognised ECS Health & Safety Course and can be used to gain an ECS Labourers Card. 

If you are looking to gain an ECS Labourers Card, please read the below and watch the short video above. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by the chat box below or by calling.

Route 1

You already hold an approved qualification...

If you already have a JIB-approved electrical theory qualification such as C&G 2365, 2330 or 2360 (or EAL equivalents), these will be accepted for your Labourer Card.

An additional list of all the accredited courses that meet the qualifying criteria can be found below. Persons holding Level 3 standard qualifications are less likely to be looking to apply for an ECS Labourers Card through the ECS. This is because they already have a high competency level, meaning they are well on their path to becoming fully qualified electricians and gaining the JIB Gold Card.

JIB Recognised Level 2 Courses

JIB Recognised Level 3 Courses

If you hold any of these qualifications, You may still need to pass the ECS Health, Safety & Environment Assessment. MJ Electrical Training offer a short course covering what you need to know to successfully pass the ECS Health, Safety & Environment Test. For only £58.00 Inc VAT you will get an in-depth short course with mock test papers, preparing you for the final ECS test. MJ Electrical Training Short Course We can also book the final ECS test for you in one of our many centre locations across the country for only an additional £60.00 Inc VAT. Alternatively, you can book the test directly through the ECS website.

Route 2

You don't hold an approved qualification...

If you don’t hold any of the above recognised qualifications, you will need to complete an ECS Recognised Health & Safety course to get your ECS Labourers Card. 

The list below outlines all the approved courses. MJ Electrical Training offers the SPA Health & Safety Core Day for only £174.00 Inc VAT. This one-day online face-to-face training course is delivered using Teams or Zoom and is available every week.

And if you taking Route 2, you will also need to prove they are actively engaged in work within the electrotechnical industry. 

This proof can be provided in a variety of ways:

If your employer has applied for an ECS Labourer Card on your behalf and has done so through the employer portal on the ECS webpage, then no further action is required. 

If you are currently working in the trade, then a written reference from the company will be enough to continue the application. The reference from the company should include the following information. 

  • The letter should be on company-headed paper.
  • There is a note to state that you are working with that company as an electrical labourer.
  • The date you started or will start with the the company.
  • The reference should be signed by an appropriate person within the organisation, including their name, position and be signed and dated.

If you are working through an agency, you must request confirmation from the company regarding the duration of your assignment as an electrical labourer. Additionally, if you are currently pursuing an electrical qualification certification program or enrolled in a related course, you must provide documented proof of your participation in the electrical course.

Finally, to obtain approval, individuals can submit an offer letter, employment contract, or a recent payslip from a respectable company within the industry. It’s important to note that only after completing all the steps mentioned above can a person be granted an ECS Labourer Card
