Increased Personal Productivity, Goal Setting and Delivery

"Many people today are spending longer periods of time at work to the detriment of their family and personal relationships. What?s worse is that many of these people report that at the end of a very busy day they feel tired and feel they have achieved very little of value. They have been ?busy being busy?."

Does that sound familiar?  Do you want to do something about it? 

Residential Valuation Workshop

Do you fully understand the requirements of the RICS Red Book for a valuation?  Are your terms and conditions of engagement compliant?  Are you ready for the RICS Valuer Registration Scheme?

3CPD is repeating its half-day Residential Valuation Workshop which will address these questions and more.  The workshop will be highly participative with a maximum of 24 delegates.  It will be of benefit to experienced surveyors as well as those with less experience.

APC workshop - How to Write a Critical Analysis

This half-day workshop for RICS members is aimed at APC candidates who are about to embark on writing their critical analysis for final assessment in Spring 2011 or later.

The workshop will explain the RICS guidelines, offer advice on the choice of topic, how to plan and structure the report, and how to present the report at final assessment.  The workshop is aimed at all APC candidates for all of the APC pathways, to include building surveying, commercial property practice, planning and development, project management, residential survey and valuation, rural and quantity surveying.

Health and Safety Update - Safe Scaffolding and Other Matters

The British Standard for scaffolding, BS 5973:1993, was withdrawn a few years ago. However, the HSE have continued to accept scaffold structures built in accordance with it - until now!

The HSE have recently announced that, as from 1 January 2011, they will no longer acknowledge BS 5973 as a recognised standard for the design of tube and fitting scaffolding structures.  This means that all scaffolds after this date should be to the European Standard BS EN12811-1:2003.
