In light of the concerns about the ongoing spread of coronavirus, RICS has made the unfortunate decision to convert this Face to Face CPD online to contain any spread during the CPD events. This hasn’t been an easy decision, however the health ad well-being of all attendees is our foremost priority
RICS is delighted to invite you to a CPD event run on Dealing with Contractor Insolvency in the Middle East which will be held on 9 March 2020.

All practising RICS members are required to record at least 20 hours of CPD (including a minimum of 10 hours of formal CPD) completed each year. It has come to our attention that certain RICS members in this region have declared as complete CPD events that they have booked but not attended.

We will also be carrying out extra checks on CPD records and, where dishonest recording is identified, the matter will be brought to the attention of the RICS regulation team and may result in RICS pursuing disciplinary action.
