» AM2S / End Point Assessment

The AM2S assessment is the End Point Assessment (EPA) for the new electrotechnical apprenticeship standard.

In order to confirm with government requirements, the AM2S differs slightly from the AM2 process in the following ways: 

  • the candidate self-assessment checklist is different and is a mandatory gateway check that must be submitted before an assessment can be booked
  • other evidence is also mandatory as part of the gateway check (see below)
  • there are specific requirements around assessor capability and qualification
  • the certification process differs from AM2 (see below)

NET’s EPA number is 0027. 

Booking an AM2S assessment 

At present, AM2S assessments cannot be booked via the main NET Assessment Booking System without prior authorisation. If you wish to book an AM2S assessment please contact support@netservices.org.uk in order to be set up for this service. 

Mandatory Evidence

The following items must be submitted as part of the gateway check before booking an AM2S assessment: 

  1. The mandatory Candidate Checklist
  2. The technical qualifications: City & Guilds 601/6299-15 or EAL 601/7345/2
  3. Maths & English Level 2

Step 1: NET completes the apprenticeship certification request form
Step 2: NET will submit the completed form by the 4th working day of each month
Step 3: Validation checks are carried out on the requests submitted
Step 4: The outcome of the verification is reported back to NET
Step 5: Successful requests are processed and sent to print
Step 6: The printer will send the certificate to the apprentice’s employer by recorded delivery.
