GVA Surveyors gain their chartered status

Two surveyors at independent property adviser GVA in Bristol have passed their APC exams following two years of study and professional training.

The APC (Assessment of Professional Competence), when added to full-time study and learning received at university, leads to RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) membership. It is the process by which RICS ensures an individual is competent to practice as a chartered surveyor.

Since joining GVA, Victoria Lane (27) and Rob Moran (25) have been studying for their professional exams, whilst gaining valuable work experience and training in the company. Victoria joined GVA in 2010, having graduated from Cardiff University in Geography and Planning, and has achieved a Masters degree in Real Estate Management from UWE. Victoria specialises in property management.

Rob graduated in Property Management and Investment from UWE and joined GVA two years ago. He specialises in property valuation.

“As a firm we are fully committed to investing in training, and the ongoing professional development of our staff,” comments Regional Senior Director David Mace. “I am delighted for Victoria and Rob on qualifying as chartered surveyors.”

15 out of 16 graduates from across GVA, the UK’s largest independent commercial property adviser, have passed their APC exams after completing the company’s graduate training programme, equalling a pass rate of 94%. The successful GVA graduate programme recorded a similar pass rate for the last two RICS APC sittings, continuing to maintain an impressive success rate for the business.
