How long do I have to re-sit sections / do they expire?

From 31 August 2019, a 2-year time limit will be introduced for candidates to pass all required elements of an assessment.

Individual sections that were passed will ‘expire’ after that time if the candidate has not successfully completed the remaining sections. A candidate can re-register but will be required to complete all sections.

This will apply to assessments where the first sitting takes place from 31 August 2019.

How much does the assessment cost?

The initial End Point Assessment cost is £1925 per person. Re-sit fees are detailed below: 

 

RE-SIT SECTION RE-SIT FEE PER SECTION
INSTALLATION SECTION £700
SAFE WORKING SECTION £150
SYSTEM TAKEOVER £275
ONLINE TEST £150
PROFESSIONAL DISCUSSION £425

 

Re-sit fees should not exceed recommended total EPA cost. Fees take account of the extra resource and cost to centres in providing partial re-sit support.    

Where do I send my checklist?

Checklists must be sent to the chosen assessment centre and not to NET head office.

Please note any checklists sent to NET head office will be destroyed and not returned or forwarded on.

I took my AM2 before April 2010 and need help…

We currently have a database confirming only the successfully achieved results for AM2s taken prior to the April 2010 date (also known as the ‘old AM2’).

If you think or know you have achieved AM2 prior to the April 2010 date, please use our Contact Form and select ‘Pre April 2010 AM2 Results’ from the drop down list. We will require the following:

  • Your full name, including any middle names or initials
  • Date of birth
  • National Insurance Number
  • The centre where your assessment was taken and approx. date (optional)

NET will then check the database based on the details supplied and confirm if a successful result exists, i.e. a ‘pass’.

Once you receive the confirmation of a pass, you can then proceed to apply for a replacement/duplicate copy of the certificate from our Certificates page.

Please Note:

NET cannot verify the following:

  • Training Organisation details of candidates
  • Previous postal addresses
  • Failed /achieved sections
  • AM1 results/certificates (AM2 superseded AM1, therefore making AM1 obsolete. Replacement certificates for AM1 are not available)

We cannot advise candidates on what to do in the event there is no evidence of an achievement. Individuals would need to refer to their training organisation and/or employer from the time of the original qualification and training.

I am interested in SkillELECTRIC – what do I do?

The SkillELECTRIC competition now has its own website where you can find out more and contact the relevant people to get involved. 

Can I re-sit my AM2 assessment at any NET centre?

Re-sits for AM2 can be booked through any of our approved AM2 centres, For AM2S re-sits please see EPA AM2S section.

Do all centres offer the AM2S assessment?

No, only centres from our approved AM2S list are permitted to take bookings for AM2S, please visit our AM2S page to view the approved centres. 

How much is the AM2S assessment?

For AM2S related questions please visit our AM2S page

Can I visit an assessment centre?

The assessment centres are strictly controlled environments, visits are not permitted unless pre-authorised by NET for an agreed specific purpose.

Is the NVQ / Technical Certificate different to the AM2 completion certificate?

Yes, the Assessment of Occupational Competence certificate will come directly from NET within 2 weeks of passing the assessment. 

Who sends out my NVQ Certificate and how long will it take?

If you are on the current framework Apprenticeship, your training provider will apply for this certificate, which will be issued by the Awarding Organisation that operates the qualification. This can take between 4-6 weeks.

For candidates who are on the new standard apprenticeship, NET will apply for the apprenticeship certificate from ESFA.
