APC Success: Paperwork & Interview Preparation (combined)

Duration: 3 days

Combined APC Paperwork and Interview Preparation

This course, previously referred to as the 3-Day Intensive APC Revision Course, is a combination of the APC Success Paperwork Preparation course and the APC Success Interview preparation course. By attending the courses in this combined format, attendees receive all the learning benefits of both courses, including continued virtual support between sessions from their cohort and coach, at a reduced cost.

APC Pathways

This course is suitable for candidates on the Commercial, Corporate, Property Finance & Investment, Planning & Development and Residential APC Pathways.

This market-renowned and very popular three day training package is available for APC candidates working in real estate organisations and surveying firms that do not have access to a corporate APC training programme. We bring together up to 15 candidates in single groups for the intensive and highly-interactive two-stage programme, which is suitable for candidates on the Commercial, Residential, Property Finance & Investment and Planning & Development APC Pathways.

The first part of this interactive small group course assists candidates with the preparation of their final submission and will cover:

  • Understanding what APC assessors are seeking from the submission and final assessment
  • How to approach and complete all aspects of the APC submission
  • The countdown to APC preparation: How best to spend time preparing for the submission
  • Using the APC Assessment Resource Centre (ARC) system
  • How to select and design the Case Study at their final assessment interview
  • An RICS Ethics overview and how to prepare for the online RICS Ethics test
  • An overview of important statutes, regulations and RICS publications
  • Advice on time management and planning their revision

The second part of the course consisting of two intensive and interactive interview preparation sessions will prepare them for their competency-based interview. Candidates will receive the up-to-date APC Success Reference Manual prior to the first session. The sessions will cover:

  • Conduct Rules, Ethics and Professional Practice
  • Mandatory competencies
  • Key core competencies, such as Inspection, Measurement, Valuation & Development Appraisals
  • Selected optional competencies (dependent on pathways)
  • How to respond to Assessors’ questions: Practical Question & Answer techniques
  • Revision techniques: Action planning for the final assessment
  • Case study presentations and Question & Answer session
  • A review of topical issues pertinent to different pathways
  • How to prepare for the final assessment interview

Podcasts on key aspects of the APC will also be available.

Course delegates are encouraged to join a private collaborative support group, which we facilitate using a social media app, through which we provide ongoing assistance to answer queries you may have leading to your APC submission.
