Frequently Asked Questions

The first step to applying is to fill in an application form. Remember the more information you can provide, the easier it is for us, and the employers we work with to try and find you the right role.

Once you have completed your form we will invite you in for an assessment centre. 

We require everyone that applies to complete an assessment centre. The tests we carry out are relevant to the engineering sector and focus on several key skill areas:

  • Manual dexterity: assesses your ability to build a small model from a kit of parts, to a set time scale.
  • Verbal: following and understanding instructions.
  • Numeracy skills: measures your ability to complete calculations  quickly and accurately.
  • Spatial reasoning: measures your ability to comprehend and manipulate objects in three dimensions.
  • Mechanical understanding: measures your ability to understandhow simple mechanical systems work.

To be successful at the assessment centre you will need to pass four out of the five assessments listed above.

Passing the assessment centre is the first stage of our application process and does not guarantee you an apprenticeship at the AMRC Training Centre, but confirms you are eligible to progress with your application.

You must also have secured employment before you can commence your apprenticeship at the AMRC Training Centre, our recruitment team provides you with the support to find a position.
