The Risk Management Module (RMM) first started in 2003 to show that the Valuation Profession took risk management seriously and were therefore good candidates for professional indemnity insurance.

Valuers who are members of API are required to complete this compulsory module every three years to ensure that they are up-to-date and have the tools to get their risk management right.

Risk management training is important as it puts a consistent base line under the industry and what is acceptable in terms of quality, standards and risks, and provides a standard to which Valuers should operate as professionals in the business.

All API Members who undertake valuations of Australian property (intellectual, personal, real and leasehold property (including plant and machinery) are required to hold a current RMM Completion Certificate. 

Applicants for Provisional Membership with Residential Property Valuer and Associate Membership with Certified Practising Valuer must complete a RMM as part of the Future Property Professionals Program.

His practice involves litigated matters in the Federal Court of Australia but primarily in state courts from the Supreme Court to the Local Court.
