The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has been making a big leap into business valuation certification. Earlier this year, it launched its distance learning format for core BV techniques. Next up is its Certificate in Business Valuation Techniques course, which will begin April 15, 2015. This 300-hour course is an introduction to the BV discipline, and it can be taken over six months.
Help wanted: RICS is also looking for an international director for business valuation to develop a strategy to make its BV designation “the most sought after designation in the practice internationally,” according to a job posting on LinkedIn.
