What does the AM2 assessment consist of?

The AM2 is a practical assessment and includes 5 sections. The assessment requires the candidate to perform a set of common occupational procedures and tasks that fully qualified electrician might face in their jobs when working at industrial and commercial buildings as well as dwellings. The assessment is taken over a total of 16.5 hours.


On the assessment the candidates do timed tasks in equipped areas containing typical electrical installation wiring systems. The tasks include installation, fault-finding, inspection and testing. The work must comply with the current British Standard (BS7671: 2015) and meet with the requirements of relevant Health & Safety legislation and industry best practice.


The test is an industry recognised trade test that is controlled by the National Electrotechnical Training (NET) Organisation in conjunction with the Joint Industry Board (JIB) and Summit Skills who are currently the Sector Skills Council for the Electrotechnical Industry.
