Advance your professional development with RICS CPD Days in 2020

Do you want to advance your professional development whilst expanding your professional network?

RICS CPD Days

The inaugural RICS CPD Days are a series of innovative events that will be changing up the way we deliver professional development opportunities to professionals working in the Quantity Surveying and Construction, Commercial Real Estate and Valuation spaces.

The program will feature three separate conferences, taking place concurrently in the one location, followed by cross-industry networking throughout the breaks and at the end of day drinks. This new event style will allow attendees to benefit from both tailored, in-depth discussion and learning, specific to their discipline, while also providing the opportunity to expand their network beyond their own field. This is a rare opportunity to get the best of both worlds.

The Sydney CPD Day will be a half day event on Thursday 26 March 2020. CPD Days will also be held in Melbourne in April 2020 and Auckland in June 2020. Further details for Melbourne and Auckland will be released shortly.
