The course has been endorsed by the Victorian Small Business Commissioner and completion of the Specialist Retail Valuer Professional Certificate provides advanced standing credit for members wishing to undertake property related courses. Successful course participants will be invited to apply to become an “API Accredited Specialist Retail Valuer”, which will involve the submission of retail rental valuation reports for panel review and sitting a Professional Interview.  On satisfactorily completing the Professional Interview, Members will be awarded the Post Nominals – “API Accredited Specialist Retail Valuer”.

It is now an API requirement for members wanting to be included on the President’s Panel for rental determinations, where the Retail Leases Act requires the appointment of a Specialist Retail Valuer, to have successfully completed this course and the periodic refresher course to maintain their currency.

Background and Overview
