To find out more about Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service (EUIAS) and how we can help you with end-point assessment, contact us here.


We offer end point assessment (EPA) for the following four pathways for the Plumbing and Domestic Heating Technician:

  • Fossil Fuel – Natural Gas
  • Fossil Fuel – Oil
  • Fossil Fuel – Solid Fuel
  • Environmental Technologies

End Point Assessment

Your apprentices will be assessed by EUIAS assessors, and EUIAS will confirm whether the apprentice has achieved the standard or not (awarding a fail, pass or distinction). 

The end point assessment consists of five elements:

  • Multiple-choice test
  • Design project
  • Practical installation test
  • Practical application test
  • Professional discussion

Typically, the apprenticeship takes between 45 months, and an additional 3 months for the end point assessment (EPA) duration.
