About the ICE scheme

Holding an ICE Card helps employees demonstrate their ability to carry out work to the required level of competence. An ICE Card is issued after an individual demonstrates they have the knowledge, skills and proficiency to perform their role through a quality-assured assessment process.

The ICE scheme can be used as a ‘training and assessment’ or ‘assessment’ only route to demonstrate competency.

To be eligible, individuals must hold a valid International Health and Safety Passport.

ICE vocational programmes and qualifications

ICE vocational programmes and qualifications are a good way to gain the vocational skills and knowledge needed for careers in the engineering construction industry.

They offer practical learning programmes in vocational subjects developed with employers to international industry standards.

Importantly, they are internationally recognised and accredited by the ECITB’s Awards and Qualifications Committee.

Candidates prove their competence by demonstrating the skills, knowledge and behaviours required for a particular role.

ICE vocational programmes and qualifications enable learners to gain the specific vocational skills, knowledge and behaviours to perform a particular role as set out by the UK’s National Occupational Standards (NOS).

By working with industry, ECITB ICE vocational qualifications (VQs) are valued by multinational employers because they offer development opportunities to staff across a wide range of engineering construction roles.

Because ICE VQs allow for a variety of assessment methods they offer candidates flexibility in how they achieve their qualification. ECITB ICE VQ Approved Centres are quality assured to ensure quality and standards of delivery are maintained.

There are two ECITB International ICE vocational programmes

International ICE Level 2

Over 6-12 months delivered in a training centre.

International ICE Level 3

Over 2-3 years. First year delivered in a training centre. Years two and three in the workplace.
