Virtual learning environment designed to make surveyor training more accessible

The launch of the RICS Online Academy brings virtual learning to many thousands of surveyors and trainees working in land, property and the built environment around the world.

Face-to-face learning is no longer the only option to either progress the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) courses or to keep up-to-date with the latest industry processes and legislation affecting subscribers, many of whom are located in the world’s emerging regions such as India and China.

As well as the initial four APC courses provided, the RICS Online Academy also offers a more flexible source of interactive personal development programmes that cover presentation skills, interview techniques and professional ethics.

Brian Schubert, RICS spokesman for training, said: “Our investment in the online technology provides a new level of flexibility to learning for our members and a valuable resource to support our development of global standards.”
