"It is easy to get lost in commercial property valuation, as it is complex and wide ranging. I found academic study too brief and narrow in focus, and I found software took over and endangered valuer insight. I wish I had had access to training that tackled the subject in a logical and practical fashion. I wish this course had been available to provide the tools I needed to tackle complex valuation without panic and frustration. It would have been great to learn these skills as part of a community, like you find with this Distance Learning programme."
