Hi ,

If we are exemption holders for Plumbing and Gas (EPUS, EGUS) do we need to complete CPD Points?

Does someone with an exemption need a supervisor?

TS - my understanding is that they do - for the first two years of an exemption that person must work under the direct supervision of their supervisor.  Exemption holders are not allowed to do testing, or final connections as far as I understand it.
Everyone who is not a certifier needs a supervisor to sign off, or direct them in their work.  They may not have to work in their presence after the prescribed times, but they still need a supervisor.
Have you learned lessons only of those who admired you, and were tender with you, and stood aside for you?  Have you not learned great lessons from those who braced themselves against you, and disputed the passage with you?  (Walt Whitman 1819-1891)  American Poet

Exemption for plumbing under supervision

 These people are not registered and don't have a full qualification, but they can do plumbing work provided they are supervised by a certifying person, who must ensure that the work is done competently.

I believe it is only licenced and certifing that will have to do CPD points.

The interesting thing is there are number of these people running their own businesses ,self employed with no staff ,  what the hell is that about, makes a joke of the requirement for fully qualified people having to upskill , I have said it before and will say it again why do certifiers agree to supervise these people ?
