What are the Compulsory Education & Technical Skills Required for a Valuation Engineer?

Anyone with basic knowledge of civil engineering and a good hold in mathematics can do valuation. One of my friends who is basically an electrical engineer is now doing building valuation along with his cousin. This field doesn't require much civil engineering knowledge. But in order to get a certificate as a valuation engineer you must possess a degree.

A civil engineer is preparing a preliminary design for the construction of the object and makes technical documentation. Based on this solution, the Investor makes an assessment of the required location area and the value of the land. This procedure is iterative until the final decision is made by which the Investor performs the expropriation (purchase) of all parcels (or parts of parcels) on the required land. During the execution of works, there may be unforeseen conditions on the ground, whose resolution requires additional expropriation, and additional costs for the Investor. Like all unforeseen conditions, these require a detailed explanation. Consequently, construction engineers, with their solutions, provide frameworks for the quantitative assessment of the necessary resources in the land.
Upon completion of the construction, by the as-built documentation developed by the Engineer, the Investor registers its ownership of the object and its associated parcels. At that moment Investor has a real property value. The engineer can make a chart with an assessment of the property value thru time if maintenance of the object is regularly done.
