The Post-Graduate Certificate in Real Property Valuation program (PGCV) has been developed in a partnership between the UBC Real Estate Division and the Appraisal Institute of Canada (AIC). The PGCV program is primarily intended to be a bridging program for graduates of business schools across Canada, offering these graduates a clear career development path and encouraging them to join the real property valuation profession. The program has been specifically requested by the Appraisal Institute of Canada (AIC), the pre-eminent accrediting body for appraisers across Canada, and has been developed in close consultation with AIC administration and members of the valuation profession.
This program is aimed at graduates of business schools across Canada, intending to enrich the students’ general business knowledge with skills and abilities specific to real property valuation. This program has been developed in collaboration with AIC, who will recognize graduates of this program as having met all of the educational requirements for its most senior designation, the AACI. To obtain the AACI designation candidates must also complete the Guided Case Study (BUSI 499 or BUSI 497), AIC 101 - Introduction to the Appraisal Profession, AIC’s Professional Practice Seminar (within 12 months of being admitted as a candidate member), and the Applied Experience program.
