Countrywide: 87 surveying trainees now qualified
Countrywide Surveying Services has announced that 87 surveying trainees have been awarded Associates of RICS.

The first time pass rate on the course was 90%, against the overall industry level of just below 70%.

During the 2013 summer because large numbers of surveyors had left the industry those remaining were run off their feet when the housing market started to recover.
To help combat the shortage, Countrywide introduced the Countrywide Surveying Services trainee programme in October 2013.

Paul Wareham, director of field operations at Countrywide, said: “It’s great to see all our trainees working in the field and spread across a wide geographic area, predominantly in the South East and London but also in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

“We know they will have a positive impact on the business as the market improves and we look forward to seeing their careers develop.”
