The AM2S is the End Point Assessment for those learners completing an Electrotechnical Apprenticeship (cannot be undertaken independently). Based on the AM2 with additional practical tasks candidates must satisfy all of the prescribed gateway checks before undertaking the assessment.
THE AM2S End Point Assessment requires candidates to perform a set of common occupational tasks and procedures that a fully qualified electrician might face when working in commercial or industrial premises, as well as dwellings. Candidates are assessed on installation, inspection & testing and fault finding. Their work must comply with the current British Standard (BS7671) and meet the requirements of relevant Health & Safety legislation and industry best practice.
The purpose of the assessments is to ensure all qualifying installation electricians achieve a single standard that has been agreed by the employers in the industry as meeting their expectations of newly qualified personnel. The content, structure and marking of the assessment is designed to produce evidence that a candidate has gained all the relevant safety critical competencies during their training process.
You should first complete NET’s Candidate Self Assessment Checklist. This is a compulsory piece of paperwork and we recommend that you complete this as part of an honest review of your readiness and to identify areas where further training or experience may be required. The Checklist will show you everything you should have learned before going into the Assessment – read through it and make sure you have done it all! It’s your employer’s and trainer’s responsibility to make sure you’ve covered everything on the list, so they should go through this with you and help identify any areas of concern. Your employer and training provider must also sign the checklist to confirm that you have completed everything on the list and that you are ready to complete your assessment.
This is an assessment process only. It covers the following areas:-
• Undertaking risk assessments for given circumstances
• The interpretation of specifications, and diagrams
• Safe isolation
• Planning and preparing to install, terminate and connect identified wiring systems
• Installing, terminating and connecting identified wiring systems
• The inspection, testing and certification of an electrical installation
• Fault diagnosis and recommend appropriate rectification
• Understanding and application of procedures, industry recognised working practices and the requirements of statutory and non – statutory regulations relevant to the electrotechnical industry.
Once you have achieved your apprenticeship you will be able to apply to ECS for your Electricians Gold Card.
