The structured training is based on candidates achieving a set of requirements or competencies. These are a mix of technical, professional, interpersonal, business and management skills.

Section one – provides information on this area of practice with a general overview of the quantity surveying and construction pathways. Section two – lists the competency requirements of the quantity surveying and construction APC pathways (as set out in the APC Requirements and competencies guide February 2012). Section three – describes the main technical competencies associated with quantity surveying and construction, providing expanded sector specific guidance on each of them.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
