At the APC Forum Jon Lever FRICS will be delivering a CPD talk on the latest RICS Rules of Conduct and Professional Ethics.  Jon has researched and trained this topic for the last 7 years since his involvement on the RICS Regulatory Board between 2007 and 2011 and more recently on the RICS Ethics Sub-Committee which he still sits on.  Jon is also associated with the Institute of Business Ethics.

Jon has made it his mission to raise awareness and educate both trainees and Chartered members of the RICS as Conduct and Ethics is often given little attention, yet it is one of the most important topics for our professional well being.

The 3 G’s To Starting Your Assessment of Professional Competence (APC)

 1. Get involved with RICS.

It is important that you get involved with RICS for your APC development. This will have many benefits as well as building up those all important business / network of contacts. Good networking opportunities can always be found at RICS meetings, various committees you can join and specifically RICS matrics events which are often designed to encourage and bring together both surveyors and other professionals. Generally any networking can be recorded in your Professional Development (CPD) and the APC assessors are always keen to see a candidate that is willing to engage with their fellow professionals. If you have a local RICS matrics group then join it, if not why not set one up? If you need some guidance or support with this get in touch.

 2. Get a job

You can only start and progress your APC if you are employed in a relevant surveying job.  It is also important that the job you are employed to do is able to cover and deliver the right practical experience for the pathway and specific declared competencies you have chosen.  You need to have the commitment from your employer that they are happy to develop and support you.  It is well worth putting a structured training plan toegther with your employer focusing on your declared competencies and commentary from your employer regarding the proposed experience they expect you to gain to achieve the competencies over time.

 3. Get stuck in

The APC is your career (no one else is going to sit the final assessment for you) so you need to step up take control and go for it. You should always be seeking opportunities for training, developing your practical experience and progressing your professional development. I often speak with candidates who feel their support network is lacking and, whilst I do sympathise when employers are, maybe, not as proactive as they should be, I also challenge candidate’s motivation and suggest if they are a little lethargic themselves then it is often the case that supervisors and counsellors (as busy as they are) are not incentivised to help an unresponsive candidate. So the moral of this tale is get a grip of the APC and drive it forwards! There is a mountain of support out there, you just need to go and get it.
