Technical competencies

RICS has drawn up the technical competencies in a generic way so that they can be applied to different areas of practice and geographical locations. It is important that you interpret them within the context of your own area of practice or specialism and geography.

Each competency is defined at 3 levels of attainment. You must reach the required level in a logical progression and in successive stages.

  • Level 1 knowledge and understanding
  • Level 2 application of knowledge and understanding
  • Level 3 reasoned advice and depth of technical knowledge.
