How to get a licence

There are basically two ways to obtain an ECOL licence:

  1. Register yourself at a training institute and follow a (reduced duration) course and take the ECOL examination.
  2. If you already possess a licence issued by an organisation that has signed a mutual recognition agreement with the ECOL foundation, your licence can (under certain conditions) be converted into an ECOL licence.

For more information on the training and examination please refer to the relevant sub section.

If you wish to apply for a conversion of your licence please use the form below.
