  • When you join the Level 3 programme, you will undertake a variety of roles including property inspection, producing digital surveys and valuing properties for either Council Tax or Non-Domestic Rating.
  • We will provide full training and mentoring.
  • An individual training programme will be put in place for you to make sure you get the right mix of work and breadth of experience required to complete your Level 3 Surveying Technician Apprenticeship and become qualified with RICS.
  •  Off-the-job learning will be provided by JACE training.
  • On completion you will achieve a Level 3 Surveying Technician Diploma comprising a combination of core units and specialist real estate management units.
  • Rather than attending formal lectures or classes, you’ll study using JACE’s state-of-the-art online learning environment and digital library, supported with guidance from highly experienced tutors. On return to the office produce digital surveys of properties inspected. 

Once you have completed your apprenticeship you will undertake the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS Associate) Assessment leading to RICS Associate qualification (AssocRICS), which will make you eligible to apply for the Level 6 Chartered Surveyor apprenticeship.
