AM2 Frequently Asked Questions

1. Who is NET?

NET is the awarding body for the AM2 test.  They manage and develop the electrical industry’s assessment of occupational competence, the AM2.

2. Who can I speak to if I have a query about my assessment or booking an assessment?

All assessment enquiries must be made directly to the ETT AM2 Assessment Centre – ask to speak with our Training and Assessment Coordinator.

3. How can I book an assessment re-sit?

Please contact our Training and Assessment Coordinator if you need to resit any part of your AM2 test.

4. Is there any preparation I can do prior to taking my assessment?

Before registering for an assessment, the Candidate Self-Assessment Checklist must be completed and signed by you as the candidate, your employer and your training provider (unless you are an independent candidate). You must bring this with you on the first day of your assessment in order to be permitted entry.  AM2 Candidates are advised to read and understand all information documents before booking an assessment. We also recommend that candidates are familiar with the IET On-Site Guide, Guidance note 3, BS7671 publications and the Building Regulations.

5. Can I do a pre-assessment training course?

If you are planning to undertake the AM2, then we recommend that you prepare your skills and knowledge in order to be successful on the first attempt. The ETT AM2 Prep for Success course will look at the most difficult areas of the test and will cover the following:

  • Inspection and Testing requirements for AM2
  • Fault Diagnosis
  • Practical Training

For further information and available dates, please see the AM2 Preparation section of our website.

6. I have not received my results. Where do I go for help?

Please note that NET cannot provide candidate results over the phone. To enquire about assessment results, please contact our Training and assessment Coordinator. Most issues surrounding the non-receipt of results arise as a result of incorrect email addresses and phone numbers being provided at the point of booking.  If our centre experiences technical problems during the assessment process, we will raise a query with NET’s IT support and will contact you with an update once the matter has been resolved.

7. I’ve received my results and wish to query the marks I’ve been given. How do I go about this?

Please contact our Training and Assessment Coordinator.  If you are not satisfied with the assessment outcome and believe that you have grounds for an appeal, please see our appeals section.

8. How much does an assessment or re-sit cost?
