The openzeppelin-test-helpers library that you are using can actually retrieve all events from a transaction. expectEvent.inLogs(logs, ...); actually scans logs for each event that was emitted during the transaction and will look for the event name (and values) that you specified.
In your case, you simply need to add another expectEvent.inLogs(logs, ...); ...
I found it easier to use the require method.
exports.a = 3;
// Note the relative path from the current test file.
const utils = require('../../src/utils.js');
console.log(utils.a); // 3
