AM2 Preparation

Don’t let the AM2 assessment catch you out…

This course is a revision course recommended prior to you sitting the full AM2 assessment. This course is offered over either a 1 or 2 day period, depending on the level of preparation required. 

The AM2 is the final test you will need to gain your JIB Gold Card. More recently the AM2S has been developed as an end-point assessment for the new Electrical Installation Trailblazer Apprenticeship standard.

Our recommendation is that you undertake the AM2 preparation course as close to the actual date of your AM2 as possible.
