Conduct Rules, Ethics and Professional Practice Competency Masterclass

Web class Online, 10 Apr 2018

Conduct Rules and Ethical principles underpin all actions of the RICS, and for those of you who are looking to gain RICS membership, it is essential you can demonstrate a thorough knowledge in these areas.

Behaving ethically is at the heart of what it means to be a professional; it distinguishes professionals from other in the marketplace. RICS rules of conduct are mandatory for all members so you must familiarise with them.

Conduct rules, ethics and professional practice is a level 3 competency and there is a significant emphasis on it during the interview. You can be referred on professional practice and ethics alone so you must be able to demonstrate your competence on the required level. 

This two-part session is designed to provide you with examples of questions and scenarios that assessors will use when reviewing this key competency. The classes will be very interactive and will allow you to ask questions and seek advice on your own experiences in this competency.

Part one will look at Rules of Conduct and Money Laundering and will briefly summarise the key aspects of the Bribery Act 2010 and part two will focus on Professional and Ethical standards.

The web class is related to the ethics and practical standards of property valuation, so the web class outcomes shall be fully incorporated to my day to day work as a real estate valuer.
On this class that I took from Mr. Jon Wright was full of information. He was available for all questions during the class. The amount of information come from Mr Jon class are outstanding resource, and the more I learn today on this class, the less risky moves I will make in the future.
