PRH Skills Assessment Centre


AM2 is an industry owned assessment which has provided the gold standard for measuring the practical capability of electrotechnical industry personnel, and has been doing this task since 1985.

AM2 is a practical assessment with a short online component, taken over 14 hours in total. During this time candidates undertake a series of timed tasks in specially equipped booths containing typical electrical installation wiring systems.

P&R Hurt are proud to be Licenced by NET (National Electrotechnical Training) To run their dedicated AM2 centre for the benefit of their own stream of electrical apprentices and others wishing to undertake the assessment.
