Risk Management Program For Surveyors

ACSIS Ltd formed a joint venture with Monash University to produce a Risk Management Program for Surveyors to enhance skills in this area and to provide a pathway to future graduate studies in risk management at Monash University.

The basic aim of the Risk Management Program for Surveyors was to encourage as many firms and individuals as possible to embrace the principles of Risk Management and Loss Prevention and thereby avoid or minimise professional indemnity claims.

The program comprised 5 modules and addressed key areas of risk management, finance, business practices and legal issues, behavioural management and practical case studies.
