The Diploma - adapted for the Scottish home buying and selling process
We've successfully been training and qualifying new surveyors in England and Wales for the last 4 years. We're now bringing the Diploma to Scotland, but with careful amendments to adapt it to the Scottish market.
- Construction and Building Pathology The Construction and Building Pathology modules cover the unique features and issues of Scottish housing. The Diploma will cover Scottish building regulations, Scottish construction types and specific features of the local Scottish environment and their impacts on building fabric.
- Law and Valuation The Law and Valuation modules address the home buying and selling process in Scotland, specifically tailored to the different legal system in Scotland, and the regulations that cover housing.
- The Single Survey report Learners will use the Single Survey report, and will compile 10 reports that will be assessed as part of their portfolio. Other condition reports that are typically commissioned by home buyers will also be covered, as will the application of consistent condition ratings to ensure the fabric and services of the property are graded correctly.
- The Energy report The Scottish Diploma will also provide the skills to produce RdSAP EPCs, an integral part of being a surveyor in Scotland, and you will gain the Level 3 Diploma in Domestic Energy Assessment in addition to the Level 6 Diploma in Residential Surveying & Valuation.
