Trainees achieve AssocRICS status

Nine e.surv trainees have successfully achieved AssocRICS status following an intensive year of study and practical application.

Ten e.surv trainees have successfully achieved AssocRICS status following an intensive year of study and practical application.

AssocRICS stands for ‘Associate, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ and is the course all our surveyors must pass before they can practice as an operational surveyor.

Our successful candidates were drawn from across the UK and represented a mix of ages and career backgrounds. They undertook a year of hard study before passing four tough assessments.

Andy McIvor, who manages the AssocRICS training for e.surv, said: “The AssocRICS course is intensive. Their typical week involves being out with their mentors – operational surveyors out in the field – for four days a week. One day in the week is a study day, but there is also a high degree of extra-curricular reading required throughout the programme.

“Six of the trainees who qualified, at the first time of asking, in August were identified early on in the programme as stand-out candidates for an early submission. They committed to our programme 100% and proved themselves to be model trainees throughout – they should be very proud of their achievement.”

Meanwhile, our graduate recruitment continues apace. Since 2013, we have recruited over 160 graduate surveyors, and over 130 of these have achieved AssocRICS status.

Those successfully achieving AssocRICS status this time, included Scott Downing, Tom Dutton, Jodie Farrington, Nicholas London, Mohammed Makhtar, Joseph Oxland, Bhinderpal Sandhu, Tom Siddorn, Sukbhir Tiwana and Jonathan Warner.
