What is AM2E?
Who is the AM2E for?
It is the new assessment process to recognise occupational competence for people who have been working as an electrician with over five years experience but haven’t been able to complete an apprenticeship or achieve an equivalent Level 3 vocational qualification.
It replaces the JIB Mature Candidate Assessment (candidates registered on this program should undertake the AM2 assessment) and provides an improved, standardised and transparent process for experienced workers to accredit their skills. It’s been developed via an industry group comprising ECA, JIB, NET, Unite, Certsure, ECS, NAPIT, City and Guilds and EAL.
Based on the same content as the electrotechnical apprenticeship, so both new entrants and existing workers are now being assessed and accredited against the same industry standard.
A self-assessment checklist must be completed prior to undertaking the AM2E assessment. Click here to open. This will need to be sent to us via the bookings page.
The AM2E mirrors the AM2S assessment taken by apprentices at the end of their training to standardise the certification, making it easier for employers to know everyone has a similar base of knowledge and competency. (please see the AM2S page for details of the assessment)
Achievement of the Experienced Worker Assessment and the AM2E meets the criteria for an ECS Gold Card application.
