e.surv is delighted to announce that all five of our most recent APC candidates have passed their Final Assessments with flying colours. This means that they are now fully chartered members of the RICS (MRICS).
Huge congratulations to Michael Chichester, Ben Sharp, Sam Wadsworth, Andrew Scudder and Glen Cameron!
A fantastic achievement
Mike Toosey, Technical Trainer at e.surv Chartered Surveyors, said: “What a fantastic achievement! All five candidates worked exceptionally hard for this and I’m delighted that it has paid off.
“They all performed exceptionally well and they are a credit to themselves and to e.surv. I am very proud of them all!
“To put it into context, the national average for first time passes on the valuation pathway is about 50%. Therefore, for 100% of e.surv APC candidates to pass first time round is absolutely brilliant.”
Ben Sharp MRICS, one of e.surv’s successful APC candidates, said: “I am delighted to have passed my APC. The fantastic support from colleagues here at e.surv has been invaluable in helping me get to the standard required at the Formal Assessment, both in terms of my knowledge and my presentation – both of which have improved immeasurably.
“The APC process is undoubtedly tough – but worth it. I hope our success shows others that it can be done!” Read more about Ben’s journey from AssocRICS to MRICS here
Michael Chichester MRICS, another of the successful candidates, added: “The two year APC process was hard and challenging, especially whilst carrying out day to day activities. The support from Mike Toosey, Tristram Jefferies and e.surv contributed to a very successful outcome.”
David Harbour, e.surv’s Chief Surveyor, congratulated the surveyors: “Congratulations to all five surveyors! This really is testament to their hard work and commitment to becoming Chartered Surveyors.
“I would also like to personally thank Mike Toosey, each of the surveyor’s counsellors, mentors and everyone within e.surv who provided help, support and guidance along the way.”
What is the APC?
The APC is the “Assessment of Professional Competence”. This is the training scheme that surveyors must complete in order to become chartered. Becoming chartered with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is a key milestone in a surveyor’s professional development. Upon passing the APC, surveyors can put MRICS after their name which proves that they are a member of the RICS and they are an expert in their field.
