From 01 August 2018 there are new requirements for initial Electrical Labourer card applications. If you already hold this card, after 01 January 2019 you will need to meet the new requirements before you renew.
The Electrical Labourer ECS card is for people working in the electrical industry in a supportive role to assist electricians and other qualified staff with the installation of cables and other unskilled work, under supervision. They are to assist but not carry out any craft work that an electrician carries out.
A labourer has a specific job role within the JIB grading structure.
In some situations this card may be issued if you cannot meet the qualification requirements of other cards such as Installation Electrician. If you hold a Labourer card, you can upgrade to an ECS gold card once you have gained further qualifications.
