myAPC Diary training videos

Before you embark on recording your APC journey, we would strongly advise you to watch our short myAPC Diary tutorial films, below.

Save over

100+ hours

admin time!

No.1 - Introduction to the myAPC Diary

Want a general introduction to the whole myAPC Diary?  Then look no further

No.2 - The Candidate Information page explained

Start here because you'll need to set up your copy of the myAPC Diary.  Enter your details, start date and competencies, simple... job done in an instant!

HINTS & TIPS
'A massive benefit of the myAPC Diary is that you can back up your data.  Once you enter data into arc there is no way of backing it up or outputting it, so be aware.

We suggest backing up your myAPC Diary weekly. Or when you have done a large data input.  It is just good practice.

Click file > download > excel

Note.  YOU CANNOT RUN the myAPC Diary offline in excel.  It just won't work...  Sorry!

HINTS & TIPS

'Record experience against Level 2 and 3 ONLY in your diary.  Level 1 is learning not experience and should therefore be recorded in your CPD.

Also, remember we don't record experience against any of our Mandatory competencies either.

No.3 - The myDiary page explained

Record all of your diary experience in real-time.  Record against your declared competencies and remember minimum HALF days!

No.4 - The myLogbook page explained

Fully Automated, nothing to do here other than watch the logbooks grow and an amazing visual tool to monitor your progress effectively.

No.5 - The myCPD page explained

With all the time the myAPC Diary saves you you can focus on building up and recording your CPD. The section also sorts it for you into activities and years.

No.6 - The mySummary of Experience page explained

Write up your competencies, check word counts, monitor against the maximum allowed word counts and sign off competency levels.  Monitor it all in real-time!

Managing the final assessment submission

Once you have used the myAPC Diary to effectively manage your whole APC process we need to get your data into the RICS submission tool, 'arc'.  Unfortunately, RICS does not allow any third party bulk upload into arc as it is not advanced enough to have this functionality.  

However, do not dispair, because out of those 100+ hours we have saved you you will need to invest about 4 or 5 of them to upload your data into arc.  We would suggest you aim to do this upload in the last 3 to 4 months prior to the RICS submission deadline you are aiming for.  You could consider investing half an hour a month to trickle feed the data into arc, with the comfort that you know you have a back up of all your data in the myAPC Diary.

This short video will explain how to get your data into arc as quickly and efficiently as possible.

HINTS & TIPS

'The myDiary and myLogbook are the powerhouses of the myAPC Diary.  This is where a huge amount of admin time will be saved.

 

Keep these up to date and monitor your competency progress and identify any RED FLAGS if you have any competency recording getting out of control'

HINTS & TIPS

'Take the myLogbook data outputs and put them into arc periodically or at least 3 to 4 months prior to submission'

HINTS & TIPS

'The myCPD and mySummary of Experience pages are great if you want to keep all of your APC journey recording in one place...

 

However, using MS WORD will do as good a job and certainly for the Summary of Experience may be easier to share with your mentors to edit and track changes'

The myAPC Diary development journey, so far...

The DeLever myAPC Diary 2020 has gone through a number of designs.  Every time it has moved forward and improved.  Here is a chronology of its development over the last 20 years:

  • July 2020 - Launch of the myAPC Diary 2020 online designed and written by Jon Lever FRICS in google sheets.  Whilst not as beautiful as its predecessor it is up to date and functioning well.

  • June 2020, Jon sadly had to shut down the myAPC Diary online due to COVID19 and escalating costs. A very sad day!

  • May 2015 to June 2020, Jon worked with a software house and provided the myAPC Diary online, a fully functioning online APC recording management and mentoring tool based on a low-cost subscription model. It was beautiful and flawless!

  • In 2008, based on the experience of designing and writing the myAPC Diary, Jon designed and created the RICS APC templates in Microsoft Excel for each APC Pathway.  The templates were used by RICS, around the world, until 2017.

  • From 2002 to 2015, Jon designed and created a fully functioning Microsoft Excel VBA programmed workbook called the myAPC Dairy.  It recorded the APC Diary, logbook, Summary of experience and CPD so you could monitor your APC progress.  This was a commercially available product.

  • From 1998 to 2001, Jon developed an excel spreadsheet that recorded and collated relevant APC information.

  • In 1998, Jon had the idea to create an automated APC recording system.  Based on his APC experience.

  • In 1995, Jon sat his APC and the entrepreneurial flair was seeping through as there had to be a simpler way to record and prepare for the Final Assessment
