The session will be divided in three parts. The first part will briefly cover inspection methods as well as preventing health and safety issues. The second part will be based on activities around the different levels and what makes a good and a bad answer. The third and last part will be a 20 min Q& A session where you will be able to discuss your questions with the Presenter and the other participants.

Learning outcomes

  • Include an Inspection key Issue within your Case Study
  • Identify how to best respond to assessors’ questions at each level
  • Present relevant experience to support your answers

Inspection is a core and also an optional competency on a number of APC Pathways. 

Learn how to effectively demonstrate and deliver your competence at all stages of the assessment process; during training, the submission stage and at your final interview.

Look at all aspects of the competency and identify the areas of work commonly included within this competency. Define the differing levels according to RICS; find out what assessors look for in your submissions; review good and bad examples of real-life submissions and finally identify top tips to follow.

Led by an experienced APC assessor, within this class you will have the chance to pose direct questions for your needs in our closing Q&A session.

Who should attend

This course is aimed at candidates choosing this competency who are in the APC process.

Why attend this course?

This course will assist candidates with not only submissions covering this competency, but also those who are coming into the final assessment process.  It will provide an overview of the competency, and revert to basics on content and its delivery.  It is therefore an excellent preparation and technical revision tool.


The training will include practical tasks and examples, and will aim to engage the candidate where possible throughout the presentation.  There will be opportunity for questions and answers at the end of the session in order to address any individual pathway or membership route concerns.
