APC – Final Assessment Presentation and Interview (Two Part Series)

Web class Online, 9 Mar 2018

As the ultimate assessment for gaining Chartered Status, the APC final interview can be a daunting experience. Ensure you prepare effectively for the best chance of success by identifying the practicalities and learning effective skills to demonstrate your knowledge, experience and skills with confidence.

Walk through the assessment criteria applied during interviews, to gain a clear understanding of how you can best prepare. Look at sample questions, test your response techniques and use case study material to critique good and bad responses. Learn from a current and highly experienced assessor who will talk you through best practice for preparing and delivering your presentation and for answering interview questions.

With ample time to practice your skills and the chance to speak with an APC assessor directly, this is the perfect opportunity to make sure you have the best chance of becoming a Chartered Surveyor.
