For those of you undertaking the APC PER Final Assessment this Autumn you will be in the throws of completing the Preliminary Assessment Documentation if not already submitting it for review. Don’t forget the cut off dates for the next stage, application for your final assessment, will be upon us in July and August and then final documentation submission in August and September. You can find all of the dates on the RICS web site.
It is important to remind anyone doing or seeking to do the APC PER it is not an easier route to Final Assessment, if anything, in my view, it actually is a little bit harder due to the restriction on word count etc., if you don’t approach the task properly.
The documentation and final assessment is all about the real-life examples at Level 2 and 3 and that full appreciation of the knowledge base requirements noted in the Pathway guides to tick the box for Level 1 knowledge…
More often than not APC PER Candidates get referred due to a lack of understanding and awareness of what they are walking into and most report that the collation of the documentation and final assessment is not what they expected and required twice (if not more) the effort than anything they have done before! It will take 4 to 6 months to get this right and be ready for the final assessment
So, I have a solution that I believe will drastically raise your opportunity to pass your APC at the final assessment. It is a pretty simple solution too…
All you have to do is consider the support you need and then come along and take a look at the DeLever APC PER Training course I have devised for you. The course provides you with six bite size events, starting on the with three events that get you ready for the preliminary assessment in October / November 2014 and thereafter another three events taking you through to submission and the final assessment preparation in Spring 2015.
The course is run my Jon Lever FRICS and a number of DeLever APC Coaches who will be from your Pathway and assess PER.
In recent Months DeLever have achieved an 89% pass rate for candidates being mentored and mock interviewed by DeLever in readiness for their final assessment. And it is worthy of note that the mentoring is not a continuous flood of support but moreover a few hours here and there…
