AIM Assessment

Audiovisual Technician EPA

The Audiovisual Technician Level 5 standard.

Audiovisual technicians work in a multitude of sectors in fixed site-specific roles and on touring events. They will interact with other members of their own team as well as a large number of internal/external clients who require AV infrastructure / support including, but not limited to: videoconferencing, hybrid events, sound, lighting, projection and computer networking.

This role provides professional solutions for communication by planning, installing, configuring and operating AV hardware and/or software. Depending on the context, this role may require a range of working patterns, including standard office working hours and shift work for events.

The length of this apprenticeship is typically 24 months.

Gateway requirements

  • Level 2 English and Maths
  • Completion of a portfolio

Assessment Methods

  • Scenario test with questioning: there are two scenarios (online events and AV systems integration) within this method whereby apprentices will be presented with a specific problem to which they are required to reply with a written solution and verbal overview. During this cycle, apprentices will be able to ask the independent assessor questions.
  • Professional discussion underpinned by a portfolio of evidence: a 90-minute professional discussion with an independent assessor to identify the apprentice’s understanding of their role. The apprentice may use their portfolio to support their responses.

Indicative duration of assessment

The EPA will be completed within an EPA period lasting typically three months, starting when AIM has confirmed that all gateway requirements have been met.
