Level 4 EPA for Brewer ST0580

Apprentice brewers may work for large-scale breweries with national or international production right through to small micro-breweries. All brewers though are responsible for making beer either at specific stages of production or in its entirety, from ingredients intake to the final product.

The brewer end-point assessment consists of three elements:

  • Practical brewing assessment, underpinned by brewer logbook

  • Knowledge test

  • Professional discussion, underpinned by brewer logbook

The assessments can be taken in any order and may be spread over more than one day. The end-point assessment must be fully completed though within twelve weeks of the EPA gateway.

The standard charge for EPA is 15-20% of the IfATE maximum funding rate, to view FDQ's Fee's Policy click here
