Like all Registered Valuers, Rob is required to have Gemmological and Diamond Grading Qualifications accompanied with years of knowledge and experience within the trade. In order to maintain Registered Valuer status we must complete a yearly Continuous Development Plan which includes periodic compulsory monitoring to ensure professional standards are maintained in adherence of The Institute’s code of practice. It is for this reason that major Insurance companies are now insisting that valuations are undertaken by a Member or Fellow of the Institute of Registered Valuers.
