Hi does anyone have any good advice for the AM2, I have it booked for November at ERR in Birmingham cheers
As long as you can read a wiring diagram you’ll be fine with the practical. The heating system scares a lot of people but it’s easy.

Make sure to flick all the switches when doing insulation resistance on the lights (and disconnect anything vulnerable to test).

They’ll ask a few questions. I know a lot of lads have been asked how to calculate R1+R2 on a ring. r1+r2/4.


Almost everything you need for the testing is in your GN3.

Good luck!
 
I would recommend you do the refresher days, they helped a lot, make sure you do everything they tell you in the folder they give you. I took mine 3 months ago now in Birmingham and been told it’s the best centre to go to. They examiners are really nice and calm, the guy I had even helped me out if I looked stuck (like gestures and asking if I’m really sure about what I was doing, hinting I was wrong).
The practical is easy, just have to read the diagrams they give you and can’t go wrong, The online exam there’s nothing to worry about, the books they give you tell you everything and the questions tell you where to find the answers. Testing I found the hardest but if you go to the refresher days they go into so much detail about how they want it done and I wouldn’t have passed if I didn’t got to that.
Good luck mate hope some of this helped

Hi mate,

I took mine this year, and there was lots of advice threads on this forums which helped massively.

A good bit of advice I would give which helped me, was have in your head what order you're going to do the install in. I did the bits which I found most difficult first, but I know some people find doing the things they find easiest more helpful, so just find out what works for you mate

Also read the spec!!! sounds simple but many people fail by not following it.

Best of luck mate, and as others have said, the refresher definitely worth doing.

Cheers
