Re-sit cost


The AM2 should be taken by electrotechnical apprentices who are training against the Apprenticeship Framework, those undertaking the JIB Mature Candidate Assessment, and those following the Level 3 NVQ who are not apprentices.

Apprentices who are enrolled in the Apprenticeship Standard should undertake the AM2S assessment. The AM2E Assessment is for experienced workers / mature candidates who are completing the 'Experienced Worker Assessment'. 

Course details

Sit your AM2 with Beau Electrical Assessment at our Licensed NET AM2/AM2S/AM2E Centre in Ashton under Lyne.

AM2 assessment is a practical assessment with a short online component, taken over 16.5 hours in total.

During this time candidates undertake a series of timed tasks in specially equipped booths containing typical electrical installation wiring systems.

The exercises include installation, inspection and testing, and fault-finding. The work must comply with the current IEE Wiring Regulations and be carried out in line with Health and Safety best practice. 

AM2 assessment is the Assessment of Occupational Competence for candidates in England, Wales and Northern Ireland (Scottish candidates see FICA).

Readiness for assessment

We recommend that you use these checklists as a working document and carefully review each section, noting where further practical experience or knowledge is required.

If gaps are identified, additional training or experience is recommended before taking the assessment.

If you can’t confidently tick at least “Adequate” for every statement in terms of both Knowledge and Practical Experience, it’s unlikely that you are sufficiently prepared to pass the assessment.
