It is incumbent on Chartered Surveyors to record 20 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) on the registration section within the RICS portal each calendar year. The same is to be said for members of The Law Society and The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.
My CPD offering comes in a choice of 4 different forms: –
- Latest legal update and commentary on the VOA statistics
- Basic valuation themed update with practice advice on spotting opportunities
- Ethics and Professional Standards – acting for ratepayers and appearing before a Tribunal
- Rating valuation for your APC – orientation of the basic elements of your required knowledge to Level 1 or 2 competency backed up with recent practice and legal developments that may form a likely topic of questioning.
Each CPD event forms a “pack”: –
A powerpoint presentation is provided
a formal record of attendance is issued
CPD notes will be made available as a download
