Live Event Rigger

The Live Event Rigger Level 3 Apprenticeship is designed for individuals who install the infrastructure for the scenic, lighting, sound and audiovisual elements of a live event.

What does the Live Event Rigger EPA involve?

The end point assessment, or EPA, for the Live Event Rigger standard is made up of three components.



The independent end point assessor will undertake an observation day onsite, to view the working practices of the Live Event Rigger apprentice in a real life situation. Activities observed include working at height, use of powered lifting equipment and flying structures in the air.



An electronic portfolio which logs achievement including a CPD log, diary or log book. This will detail experiences in which the apprentice has been involved and allow them to display knowledge and understanding of different subject matters within the standard. The portfolio will be tested with the candidate during the Viva.



The Viva allows the independent assessor to query aspects of the standard that were not covered in the observation. Topics range from basic elements accomplished early in the programme (basic health and safety/ knowledge of equipment etc.) to knowledge of work systems and discussion of experience. The apprentice will be probed upon their expertise of rigging technique along with their knowledge of the hierarchy of events and behavioural topics.

Apprenticeship standard

An apprenticeship standard is a short document based on an occupation, outlining the knowledge, skills and behaviours (KSBs) needed for someone to be competent in the occupation’s duties.

All apprenticeship standards have an accompanying assessment plan. This document details the independent assessment that apprentices will undertake at the end of the apprenticeship. This will include details on the assessment method(s) and processes that will be followed.
