The AM2 is a practical assessment with a short online component, taken over a total of 16.5 hours. 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 British Standard (BS7671: 2018) and meet with the requirements of relevant Health & Safety legislation and industry best practice.
The assessment comprises four sections A – D. (Section A is split into two distinct areas which are separately marked):
A1 Safe Isolation and Risk Assessment (1 hour)
A Composite Installation (8.5 hours)
B Inspection and Testing (3.5 hours)
C Fault Diagnosis (2.5 hours)
D Online multiple choice examination (1 hour)
The current recommended price for the AM2 assessment from 01 April 2018 to 31 March 2019 is £660.00. The recommended price from 01 April 2019 is £685.00
The recommended price for re-sits is as follows:
|Assessment||Section||Re-sit fee (per section)||Re-sit fee from 01 Apr 2019|
|A1, C1, D||£100||£110|
Please note: Prices are reviewed annually. Re-sit charges for each section take account of the additional resource for centres in scheduling ad hoc activity rather than entire assessments. If a candidate needs to re-sit multiple sections, the charge must not exceed the maximum recommended price for AM2 or AM2S.
