If you’re in the later stages of studying to become an electrician, you are required to complete a final assessment to demonstrate your acute skills and technique. This is called the AM2 Electrotechnical Assessment of Occupational Competence.

If you’ve been studying the City and Guilds 2365 Electrotechnical Technology, or City & Guilds 5357 NVQ Level 3 to qualify as an electrician, the next step is to complete an AM2 assessment to officially prove your competence. The AM2 qualification is also one of the requirements for obtaining the ECS/JIB, Approved Electricians Gold Card.
