APC Diary

My APC Diary As A Graduate Surveyor

Monday, 12 December 2016

I joined Whybrow in June 2015 following the completion of a BSc (Hons) in Property Development. Being an RICS accredited qualification, this has enabled me to enrol on the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) and begin working towards becoming a Chartered Surveyor which has been my goal since leaving school, with college firing up my inspiration to become qualified. I will be writing about my training experiences here on the blog over the coming months.


The APC is a structured training programme that ultimately leads to Chartered Surveyor status. The APC sets out a list of professional competencies that the candidates must cover in order to be fully qualified within their selected discipline. Candidates also have a supervisor and counsellor to guide them through the training and oversee progress - I am fortunate enough to have a wealth of knowledge to call upon in the guise of both Chartered Surveyors and two other APC candidates which helps to progress to my end goal.


I have chosen to follow the Commercial Property Practice APC pathway as this will give me an excellent opportunity to develop hands on experience within the property sector and coincides perfectly with the professional services that we offer such Commercial Agency, Valuation Services & Property Management.


The APC essentially gives the candidate the opportunity to develop & obtain experience, skills and knowledge within their chosen pathway. Before I will be ready to sit the final assessment I must record a minimum of 23 months experience and the submission of a case study. Throughout the APC period the candidate must maintain a day to day log book and diary setting out details of the various professional competencies that have been covered in addition to logging CPD records. The final assessment, following the case study, consists of a presentation to a panel of Chartered Surveyors followed by interview.

Now this is a blog. Reading about someone else's journey of studying their APC whilst in full time employment is riveting.
