FPWS Training

Third Surveyor Seminars

Our Education and Training is second to none. Having been in existence since 2001 we have established ourselves as the recognised body for teaching in all matters relating to the Party Wall etc. Act 1996.  We are a not for profit organisation whose raison d’être is the promotion of best practice in this niche area of surveying.

This seminar is designed to provide a formal framework for the training and assessment of candidates for listing in the register of approved Third Surveyors.

It is hoped that formal training will go some way to avoiding these pitfalls and ensuring that those practitioners listed by the Faculty are well informed and competent.

This is for extremely experienced party wall surveyors.

Anyone wishing to upgrade from Member to Fellow status must have been a FPWS Member for one year and is required to attend this course.

If you would like to upgrade electronic copies of the documentation and £225 interview fee are required to be submitted prior to arranging an interview date. If a live award is not available, then please produce an award from instructions supplied with seminar paperwork.
