2016 Tutorial

There were over 50 candidates in attendance over the two days, who were at various stages of preparation towards taking their professional exams.

The first day is spent entirely at Parklands with lectures of between 45 minutes and an hour, interspersed with coffee breaks in the morning and afternoon, and a buffet lunch. The second morning is a practical based session with the delegates split into 3 groups, which are then rotated around various ‘stations’. The practical sessions are based on local farms within a short drive of Parklands, at the kind permission of the Balaam & Reay families. In the afternoon the group then returns to Parklands for the final talks.

The practical morning is an extremely useful opportunity for candidates to question practicing qualified rural surveyors on some of the more detailed aspects of the profession, which many APC and CAAV student do not deal with on a day to day basis. The groups were divided on ability so that extra attention could be provided where required, and the most advanced group were taken through the morning in a mock exam format.

A special thanks goes to both farmers, who are integral to holding the event and making the tutorial what it is, and also to all the speakers who gave up their time to prepare talks and attend the tutorial.

Feedback from the event has been overwhelmingly positive with candidates appreciative of the breadth and depth of information imparted in two days, which will hopefully stand them in good stead for success in the forthcoming exams.
