A guide to Knight Frank’s APC programme
The Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) is the culmination of the training for candidates seeking Membership of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). The APC exists to ensure members are competent to practice and meet the ethical standards required by the RICS. Preparation for the APC is undertaken at Knight Frank through a two year structured training programme which enables cognate graduates to meet the requirements of the RICS to be eligible to sit the final assessment interview. Our training focuses on graduates achieving the required competencies for their pathway as well as developing their other professional, interpersonal and management skills through a series of courses and seminars arranged through the two year period.

This support comes in the form of three monthly review meetings throughout the two years as well as more intensive support in the run up to the final assessment in the form of revision lectures, document checking and mock interviews.
