I had attained my Chartered membership in RICS through AIMS Guidance Program conducted by Mr. Ramesh Palikila in 2011. AIMS provided me complete, valuable and effective tools for preparing and developing myself as a Contracts Professional in the Construction Industry. My eventful journey post MRICS with AIMS also provided me a professional platform where new experience, knowledge and skills could be acquired, demonstrated and shared with many Construction Professionals as a mentor. AIMS is highly recommended for young and experienced Quantity Surveyors and Contracts Professionals who aspire to develop further in their respective profession and career.
