Your role

As a counsellor you play an important role in ensuring that those following the assessments have the experience and potential to fulfil our ethical standards and professional competency requirements before progressing to final assessment.

Working as a counsellor can be personally rewarding and satisfying, and you will:

  • help to maintain the high professional standards expected of qualified professionals
  • put something back into the surveying profession
  • help raise the profile of RICS and its professionals around the world
  • satisfy the ‘Service to RICS’ characteristic recognised for RICS Fellowship (FRICS).

Counsellor training

All RICS counsellors must complete training that prepares them for the role. A free e-learning module is available via the Assessment Platform.

Assessment Platform

When you become an RICS counsellor you will automatically be given access to the Assessment Platform where you can follow your candidates’ status and progress through the stages of assessment. This is also where you will have access to the Counsellor module, review candidate’s submissions and confirm their readiness for assessment.
