Senior Associate Chris Warwick has become an APC Panel Assessor
Bruceshaw is delighted to announce that Senior Associate, Chris Warwick, has become an Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) panel assessor after completing his training in September. Chris’s reasoning behind his participation is that he was taking the “honouree position to give back to the profession” in which he has worked his entire career.
APC, is a training scheme that is essential for graduates to qualify as a RICS chartered surveyor which is a crucial milestone in a surveyor’s professional development. The course, that spans over four years, is one that Chris completed in 1994 and now he aims to help those entering the profession, using his knowledge and experience to assess who is eligible to become a chartered surveyor. The post graduate course entails three levels of competencies: knowledge, experience and advice, which are involved in the 40 hours CPD that is needed.
This position for Chris is a “responsibility within society not just the profession”, which allows him to help those around him. As Chris is a QS he expects to be the specialised panellist for QS students, unless he is nominated to be the non-specialised panel member. The role includes reading the submissions of those on the course as well as being one of three members on the panel that assess the critical analysis presentation. It is expected that Chris’s first call to take up this role will be around May 2018 as the panel is called on twice a year, four times a day. We look forward to hearing more about his first panel!
