Career pathway for ECS card holders

The IET and the Joint Industry Board (JIB) have provided a career pathway for ECS card holders to fast track into professional membership of the IET.

Fast track to professional membership

Both government and industry have emphasised the need for industry-wide certification schemes to confirm the levels of competence of properly skilled crafts people and eliminate unsafe working practices. ECS cards are becoming the ‘licence to work’ for many electrician and related electro-technical trades.

To encourage an increase in professionalism across the building and construction industry the IET and the Joint Industry Board (JIB) have provided a career pathway for ECS card holders to fast track into professional membership of the IET. In addition, you can work towards achieving a globally recognised qualification, EngTech, ICTTech, IEng, CEng, which is an important career achievement demonstrating hard work and dedication whilst showing a commitment to your profession.
