I would ditto KME's post as well!

I don't know what AM2 is either? ?:|

be interested to know though........ :|

but as andyman2 said that "you only get a continuity tester to test with so hopefully they wont be too hard."

I assumed this is somewhere at the early stages of ye modern electrical training! ?:|

is is part of a C&G or NVQ ???

It probably needed someone who has done or is doin training more recent than us older senile bods who could pick up and answer it? :(

After your C&G 2330 (levels 2 & 3) You can gain the 17th Edition (C&G 2382-10 or -20) then gain your Inspection & Testing Qualification (C&G 2392-10 or 20) Next it is onto the NVQ Level 2, once you have that you do the NVQ 3 (AM2) complete with the AM2 Practical Testing Certificate and the NVQ Level 2 will qualify you as an 'Approved Electrician' and JIB (Joint Industry Board) rates of pay.

Where would you be without me? :D

OK, The C&G 2330, 2382-10 & the 2391-10 are replacements for the old C&G 236, 2381 & the 2391, Respectively.

Is that any easier?

NO, on my understanding of it on enquiring before i returned to England the

'A'cheivement 'M'easurement '2' test is merely to ensure you have the relevant skills to undertake installation work of your own.

if you or me for instance required certified to the same standard then we would be required to provide relevant references from a suitable source,

ie, employers or contractors or clients for a suitable time span before our application and relating to electrical installation and our experience.

Ive tried to basically transcript this in a short version and include the important bits,

No need to apologise m8...

Looks like you've been far to busy to even look at a PC..

let alone post on the forum! :D

Best of luck with your 2391!

In some ways cramming a lot though a short period of time can be better..

cuz you are still in a studying frame of mind..

It can sometimes be harder, or take longer, to get your head back round study & exams when you haven't done any for a few years! :|

Just dive in ... enjoy it... worst case scenario is you have to do a re-sit later!

Which in the whole realm of things in the "bigger picture" isn't much of a problem. :)
