The Architectural Practice Course (APC) aims to prepare and equip candidates for the Professional Practice Examination (PPE). It is a mandatory training programme for candidates enrolling for the Board of Architect's PPE. The curriculum is specifically planned and designed to integrate theoretical principles with practice knowledge. The syllabus is based on a cross between the current PPE syllabus and the tutors' real-life experience and knowledge.
The course comprises of twenty-one evening sessions (with 4 tutorial classes) and is conducted weekly with a total duration of 60 hours. The candidates are required to attend all the sessions as each session is designed to prepare and equip them for the PPE. This will be conducted via zoom. Tutorials will be held in person should SMMs allow. Each learner will attend 4 tutorial sessions. They are to attend 1 session from each tutorial.
While APC is customised mainly for PPE candidates, it is also useful and suitable for architects who wish to update and refresh themselves on the latest development in professional knowledge.
