To help you prepare for the Electrical Safety Unit Assessment (which has a passmark of 75%), required to obtain the Related Discipline Card introduced in 2021, LearningLounge.com has teamed up with Una-Volta Productions and JIB to produce an engaging online training course covering the detailed content of the unit “Electrical Safety Essentials” - Link

ECS Related Discipline Cards are available for: 

  • Field Engineer

  • Equipment Installer

  • Aerial and Satellite Engineer

  • Control Systems Engineer

A full list of jobs that are classed as related disciplines can be viewed here ecscard.org.uk

To obtain the Related Discipline Card, candidates will also have to pass the standard Health, Safety & Environmental Assessment. Our Electrical Safety Course will help with the electrical questions in this assessment, too. So it would be well worth doing “Electrical Safety Essentials” before sitting the HS&E assessment. Info 

A free revision pdf for the HS&E assessment can be found on this ECS page.

“Electrical Safety Essentials” is a fully online course available 24/7 allowing candidates to study when it suits them. The course covers important electrical safety and regulatory requirements from the related disciplines point of view. For our full course tutorial, assessment booking and support page please click HERE
