Please help him with these arrears, thank you.

£105 needed for an ECS card and the related assessment

This gentleman has been working with Citizens Advice in relation to his debts. He has been unemployed for more than 18 months, but has recently passed his 18th Edition Course. The final steps to opening up a lot of employment opportunities are to pass the the ECS Health, Safety and Environmental assessment, and gain his ECS card (Electrotechnical Certification Scheme card). He has no surplus income so cannot afford the fees. But, if he were to gain his ECS card, it would open up life changing opportunities, and enable him to move forward.
