What is the AM2E assessment?

The AM2E is a practical assessment where you have to carry out a series of tasks covering safe isolation, installation, fault finding and inspection and testing, which are then marked by an assessor. It mirrors the AM2S assessment which is taken by apprentices at the end of their training programme. You can find out full details about each section of the AM2E and the tasks you’ll need to carry out on the NET website.

I have passed the AM2 previously – will I still need to take the AM2E?

If you are completing the Installation Electrician Experienced Worker Assessment and have already passed the AM2, you will only have to undertake a supplementary AM2E unit rather than the whole assessment.

The unit to be completed depends on when the original AM2 was passed:

  • Before April 2010: Testing and Safe Isolation supplementary unit
  • After April 2010: Containment and Safe Isolation supplementary unit

Some assessments in 2010 were carried out after the April changeover, but as part of NET’s checks during the application process it will be confirmed which unit you will need to carry out.

How do I book the AM2E?

The AM2E should be booked via NET but this cannot be done until you have achieved the Experienced Worker qualification. You will need to provide the qualification certificate as evidence as part of the booking process.
