Achieving RICS status is a prestigious and internationally recognised professional qualification that has a number of commercial benefits. As such, gaining RICS membership takes a lot of dedication and hard work.
To increase your chances of becoming a chartered surveyor and access to all its benefits, this web class will cover the whole of the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) process and is designed to demonstrate to candidates, what happens during the process and what is needed to achieve membership.
You will be required to do some pre-reading and set tasks in between the sessions to generate discussion and help to gain a thorough understanding of the process. In order to give you confidence in the knowledge you gained during the course you will be tested by quizzes, polls and chat activities with plenty of opportunity to interact with the trainer and other candidates.
Please note that in order to fully benefit from this course you are strongly advised to attend the live session and complete a short coursework after the first session.

- Identify the role of the counsellor and supervisor and how they work with and support the candidate
- Demonstrate comprehension of the principles of the case study, the summary of experience and the requirements of the final assessment
