1 day Valuation Skills Workshop
10:00 – 17:00 Saturday 19 January 2019 Derby (near station)

Why are we offering this?
In my experience, valuation is often the weakest competency with most candidates. I am looking to build both confidence and practical skills. This is not a lecture, by the end of the day you will be able to work manually through and describe a simple valuation using all methods with a focus on comparable, investment and residual methods to reflect experience.

How will you achieve this?
We will be using valuation simulation case studies which can contribute to level 2 in all five methods of valuation. This is particularly useful for those whose experience is limited to only one or two methods & hence lack the breadth of knowledge/experience expected by most assessors. There will be an experienced mentor to support the case studies and coach you step by step. For specific learning outcomes, see next page.

Who should attend?
All candidates declaring valuation competency sitting in the 12 months after January 2019 .

Who will be delivering this?
Unusually, there will be 2 Assessors (me plus another valuation specialist) to allow one-to-one help for those finding performing the manual valuations challenging.

Thank you for an excellent course last Saturday, the whole day was very good but I found the practical case studies particularly useful as they enabled me to become more confident in doing valuations as well as highlighting areas that I need to brush up on.
