The Engineering construction industry’s most valuable asset is its people. They design, construct, maintain, renew and dismantle the UK’s strategically important industrial infrastructure. It is therefore essential these individuals are highly skilled and are competent. It is also essential that their competence is properly recognised and validated.

The ECITB Skills and Training Charter provides the opportunity to affirm your commitment to the skills development of the workforce by signing a pledge. ECITB will work in partnership to ensure that clients, contractors, government have confidence that the ECI industry carry out their role safely, competently and efficiently.

Success Stories


As an organisation which is solely dependent on operational staff, Applus embrace the ECITB’s ‘Skills and Training Charter’ and the ethos it underpins. Without the training facilitated by the ECITB our technicians and support staff would not be as adept or competent in their roles. The ECITB not only provides development and improvement in industry, but also provides opportunities and career paths for thousands of workers.
