A Professional Architect or Quantity Surveyor is a person who is registered as such in terms of the Architects’ and Quantity Surveyor’s Act (Act No. 13 of 1979, as amended by Act No. 11 of 1992) providing professional service in the construction industry. The Namibia Council for Architects and Quantity Surveyors is the regulatory body constituted by the above mentioned Act. Part of its mandate is to register suitably qualified persons as Architects and Quantity Surveyors.
The NCAQS seeks to assure itself, through the Assessment of Professional Competence programme that only candidates capable to carry out competently and professionally the work of an Architect or Quantity Surveyor are registered.
This document is to be used as a guide by newly qualified graduates in Architecture/ Quantity Surveying who must complete a period of structured, supervised practical training, as well as any other assessment set out by the Namibia Council for Architects and Quantity Surveyors, including the Assessment of Professional Competence in order to register as an Architect/ Quantity Surveyor.
