Two prominent members of the electrotechnical industry have been among the first to sign up for the new ECS Registered Electrician status. ECA president Mike Smith (below left), bid director at SES Engineering, and Kevin Snowdon, owner of NES Electrical, applied after meeting the criteria and agreeing to the Code of Professional Practice.

The new status is available to all ECS Installation and Maintenance Electrician cardholders who are qualified in the current (17th Edition) of the Wiring Regulations.

Mike Smith says: “The ECS Registered Electrician card is an exciting development that’s all about the individual electrician and not about company competency or certification. For the electrician, it recognises his or her achievements and qualifications, and their commitment to ongoing professional development. Employers and clients, can see at a glance the electrical and safety qualifications of an individual.”

On receiving his card, Kevin Snowdon said: “Supported by all of the industry leaders, but in its voluntary stage at the moment, I hope one day this will be a mandatory requirement similar to the government-approved GasSafe scheme. At NES Electrical, it is a worthy addition to an already high-regarded card
