Getting AM2 assessments back on track!
We hope that everyone is staying at home and being safe. These are uncertain times for all of us and unfortunately, we have had to put our electrician courses on pause, however, looking ahead we are aiming to get all of our training courses and assessments back on track including the all-important AM2 for training electricians. We have a dedicated AM2 centre here at our facility and is almost a centre within our centre for the purpose of keeping this process separate from the usual busy nature of our centre here at Able Skills.
What is an AM2?
If you are working towards becoming a professional electrician you will most likely be aware of the AM2 process...It is partly a practical assessment and also consists of a short online section. During the practical section, candidates will 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 and the work must comply with the current IEE Wiring Regulations and be carried out in line with Health & Safety best practice.
What is needed in preparation?
Well, if you decide to take our Gold Card Approved Electrician Package then you will already be working through all of the needed courses and gaining all the practical skills and theoretical knowledge in order to be ready for this assessment. Including; City & Guilds Level 2, City & Guilds Level 3, PAT Testing, 18th Edition and Inspection & Testing. Our electrician courses are taught by our talented instructors who have years of experience in the trade and will convey the lessons learnt out on the tools to our students!
Able Skills invested in opening an AM2 centre to ensure that as a company, we can progress individuals through the entire training and assessment process ourselves to ensure that we produce a high quality of Electrician through our electrician courses. AM2 is a practical assessment with a short online component, taken over 16.5 hours (2.5 days). 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 and the work must comply with the current IEE Wiring Regulations and be carried out in line with Health & Safety best practice.
Following the government's advice is critical to protecting the NHS and saving lives.
