AIM Assessment

Broadcast and Media Systems Technical Operator EPA

The Broadcast and Media Systems Technical Operator EPA is the end-point assessment for this level 3 standard.

A Broadcast and Media Systems Technical Operator supports the delivery of broadcast and communication services; television or radio programmes, podcasts, and internet streaming services, pay-per-view or downloadable content. They work within a team reporting to the Team Leader/Shift Leader, providing support to both Production Crew and Broadcast and Media Systems Technicians and Engineers, to ensure studio and web broadcast services and transmissions are consistently maintained without impact to live broadcasts.

Gateway requirements

  • Complete portfolio

Assessment Methods

  • Observation: A three- hour technical observation of the apprentice in their workplace during which they are required to demonstrate that they can set up and monitor a broadcast communication system and/or network in line with service level agreements and followed by 30 minutes follow up questioning.
  • Professional discussion: A 45-minute discussion with our assessor supported by the apprentice’s evidence portfolio.

Indicative duration of assessment

Both assessments will usually be completed within three weeks of gateway and where possible on the same day (subject to availability of facilities and assessor).
