RICS Certifications: Valuation APC pathway

RICS Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors property valuer qualificationsThe Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors RICS Certifications cover Property Valuer qualifications, residential survey and valuation and machinery and business assets.

Property valuation is a core skill for a future property valuer job: the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is the world’s leading qualification for valuation professionals and specialist valuers operate across both the public and private sector, though the most common asset classes include commercial, residential or rural property.

Mortgage lending decisions rely on the advice of Property Valuers, professionals who have achieved their Property Valuer qualifications. Although IT is playing a more and more important role in this area, professional advice is set to remain crucial to lenders.

About the Property Valuer qualifications:

Qualified RICS Professionals of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors are recognised by the designatory letters:

  • FRICS (Fellow)
  • MRICS (Member)
  • AssocRICS (Associate)

AssocRICS and MRICS are qualifications, not licences. They define what level of competence the holder has demonstrated on the day of assessment. Once qualified, any individual may further develop their skills through CPD and practical experience organised by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
