Surveyor Qualifications through the PCA

Gaining accreditation and certification through the PCA demonstrates to employers and clients alike that, as a surveyor, your knowledge and expertise is beyond reproach. 

All of the examinations comprise a rigorous process made up of both written papers and oral examinations to thoroughly test and evaluate a candidate’s knowledge and ability to apply that knowledge in practice. Follow the links below to find out more about our surveyor qualifications.

NOTE: In order to complete the CSDB/CSTDB and CSSW qualifications, candidates must also sit and pass a separate Legal and Health & Safety examination module.

Technician qualifications through the PCA

The PCA understands the importance of having trained and qualified expert technicians and tradesmen. This is why we offer PCA Qualified Technician (PCAQT) certification for the damp & timber, waterproofing and invasive weed sectors.  These technician course include both training and assessment on the same day(s).

PCA qualifications in partnership with ABBE

Due to the successful relationship between the ABBE and the PCA, candidates successfully passing the CSSW (Certificated Surveyor in Structural Waterproofing) and CSTDB/CSDB (Certificated Surveyor of Dampness in Buildings) examinations, will be awarded the ‘ABBE/PCA Level 3 certification through ABBE.

The PCA works in partnership with the ‘Awarding Body for the Built Environment‘ (ABBE) to audit and award some of our qualifications.

Along with the rigour and professionalism of the PCA examination process, this means that the CSTDB, CSDB and CSSW exams and qualifications will be independantly verified by UK leading award organisation within the construction industry!
