Course description

This vital course for APC candidates will help you to understand the APC process; equipping you with the skills to demonstrate competencies, and preparing you for the final assessment.

Providing you with comprehensive guidance, the APC Prep Day will take you step-by-step through each stage of your Assessment of Professional Competence (APC). Delivered by our expert trainers who are APC Assessors and Mentors, this course has a unique mix of informative sessions and pathway-based workshops, equipping you with the skills and knowledge needed to demonstrate practical training and experience.

Covering each key assessment requirement and offering a valuable chance to seek out advice, the day will provide vital opportunities to develop improved understanding of the APC process: including a live mock interview and opportunities to submit questions or network with delegates and our expert trainers. You’ll also hear from a recently passed candidate sharing their experience of the APC process and how they prepared for the final assessment.

Ensure you are ready for the final assessment and closer to becoming RICS qualified by attending this extensive, interactive and insightful day.

APC Candidates 6 months away from their scheduled or anticipated final assessment date - although candidates at any point of their APC journey can attend.
