I was already well aware of the College of Estate Management before undertaking the degree in Estate Management, having previously completed the Diploma in Surveying Practice. The degree was therefore the next logical step for me, and key to being able to obtain Chartered status.
I was referred to the College of Estate management by my employer and training advisor, the Chartered Surveyors Training Trust, not long after commencing employment, both of whom considered the CEM course to be the establishment for surveying based qualifications.
Personally, the academic reputation and flexibility of the College were particularly attractive. The ability to work full time whilst learning was also paramount, acquiring the key technical skills alongside professional expertise. The importance of this academic and experienced based relationship became very apparent for me at the outset of the recession, with many of my peer surveyors who had studied full time courses struggling to find employers willing to take them on, whilst my fellow students and I had a choice of positions.
The ‘faceless’ nature of the course may be concerning to some students, however you are never really alone. The online student forums provide a fantastic way to talk to fellow students all over the world, asking those seemingly stupid questions everyone wants to ask and bouncing assignment ideas off each other, steered ably by the tutors.
For me, as a commercial valuer, the most enjoyable subject was the valuation topics. The material taught provided an exceptional technical base which was highly relevant to my work in practice, and, combined with the experience gained throughout working during the course, has led to success both professionally and academically.
Distance learning is certainly not the easy option; it requires dedication and perseverance. However, if you are willing to apply yourself, the rewards are even greater. It is only in hindsight that I have realised just how much the course has improved my employability. Undoubtedly employers recognise that it requires a certain level of self-discipline and aptitude to undertake the course, and consequently you become extremely well regarded within the profession.
I cannot recommend the course more highly for fellow aspirational surveyors.
