Guideline for Diary and Logbook Completion

  1. The purpose of this exercise is to enable candidates’ present analysis of their professional experience in a chronological order based on entries in their Diaries, which will assist the assessors to determine if their professional experience is adequate and properly balanced. It will also provide an easy reference to any particular aspect of the training as set out in the diary.
  2. Diaries and Log Books are to be collected from the Institute as soon as the candidate is eligible for Test of Professional Competence. Submissions are to be made annually in the month of January for the preceding year. Assessment would be carried out in February while the results are expected to be released in March, both of the same year submission. Corrections and observations made by the assessors are expected to be reflected in the following stage(s) of the submission made by the candidate. Only candidates who passed stage 3 would be qualified to sit for the Test of Professional Competence Interview.
  3. The Log book comprises Analysis of Diary Sheets covering a total of thirty-six months. On receipt of the Log Book, every candidate is required to complete all the details specified on the cover and all other pages.
  4. Log Book must be submitted to the Institute along with the Diaries in three (3) stages of twelve (12) months each for assessment. Before sending the Log book for assessment, the onus is on the candidate to carefully and properly fill both documents. The details of the entries would be defended by the candidates at the end of each stage.
  5. During the thirty-six (36) months period of training, the candidate is expected to be attached to a professionally qualified Quantity Surveyor who for the purposes of this exercise shall be the supervisor. Upon acceptance to be a supervisor, the Supervisor will write the Institute signifying his/her acceptance and willingness to supervise the candidate. The Supervisor is expected to monitor the activities of the candidate within the period and offer advice and corrections where necessary.
  6. The information entered in the analysis sheet must be extracted from the Diary at the end of each week. The days spent on each activity (stated in the days in the Diary) in each week must be summed up and entered into the appropriate space (cell) corresponding with the activity and the week in the analysis sheet.
  7. On completion of each stage of 12 months, the time (in days) spent on each activity as reflected in the Diary and transferred to the analysis sheet of the Log Book must be totalled both horizontally and vertically.
  8. While the vertical summary shows the total days spent on all activities per week, the horizontal summary shows the number of days spent on each activity throughout the duration of the practical experience.
  9. Log books must be signed at least once every three (3) months by the candidates and the supervisor.
  10. Each construction project undertaken or any other work carried out by the candidate or mentioned in the Diary shall be clearly described giving the project title, with brief description, location and at least name of one project team member with contact details (clients, consultants, and contractor).
  11. Report Writing: At the end of each stage of twelve (12) months, the candidate is expected to write and submit a brief but articulate report of works undertaken in about three pages or 900 words. The report should have a clear introduction, summary of the works executed, lessons learnt and a conclusion. An electronic copy of the report would be submitted along with a hard copy for purpose of defense.
  12. Oral Defense: At the end of each stage of the project work, the submissions by the candidates are to be defended before a panel of assessors. The candidate is expected to explain the works undertaken and the experiences acquired.
