Benefits

Key benefits of being an isurv author include:

  • getting paid for your contributions;
  • accessing isurv for free;
  • increasing your CPD (isurv authorship counts towards your 10 hours of informal CPD); and
  • raising your industry profile (you'll have your own biography page with links to your organisation's website).

Being an isurv author can count towards CPD

  • If you are an RICS member you can use your contribution to isurv to help support your RICS CPD requirements.
  • isurv authorship counts towards the 10 hours of informal CPD. However, members are required to carry out at least 10 hours of formal CPD annually. Formal CPD, such as professional courses, can be expensive and time consuming.
  • If, as an isurv author, you can demonstrate that the role has provided you with 'substantial learning' it can be attributed towards formal CPD. For example, if you do any research as part of an isurv update and, therefore, are expanding your own knowledge, it counts. (If you are simply passing on what you already know, it doesn't.)
  • Remember, you need to validate what you've learned when you submit your CPD records.
  • For more information about CPD see CPD requirements on the RICS website.
