1. Synoptic Project: This extended task will simulate aspects of the Digital Engineering Technician role with scenarios and problems that require input and action from the candidate. The synoptic project will assess the candidate in context, testing application of knowledge and understanding. This will create an opportunity to observe the practical skills of the candidate in real-time. 

2. Interview: The interview is the final stage of the EPA; this is competence-based, taking into account the results of the Synoptic Project stage. The assessor will determine and validate the evidence provided by the EPA portfolio. This summative assessment will involve reviewing the compilation of representative work-based outputs, which appropriately demonstrate how the candidate has learned and consistently applied the Digital Engineering Technician skills, knowledge and behaviours gathered toward the end of the apprenticeship. The assessor will probe areas such as behaviours and judgment.
