No but PPE is a mandatory requirement

On-programme assessment is used to monitor progress in the acquisition of knowledge, skills and experience. This normally includes two elements:

a) A mandatory Level 3 Diploma comprising core and optional units.

b) The presentation of a portfolio of evidence (which will not form part of the Diploma). This will be assessed by Assessors who are either qualified NVQ Assessors or who are active and trained Assessors for the RICS Associate assessment.

Apprentices without Level 2 English and Maths will need to achieve this level prior to taking the end-point assessment. 

The end-point assessment is the RICS Associate assessment. This is a substantial piece of work, typically taking around three months to complete and will include:

  • A 3000-word summary of experience
  • A 2500-word case study
  • A record of a minimum of 48 hours of continuing professional development undertaken during the last 12 months
  • An ethics test
