PCA Industry Qualifications
Alongside being the Trade Association representing members within our sectors, the PCA is also the awarding body for a number of industry recognised technician and surveyor qualifications.
The Property Care Association stands firm as the voice of authority within the industry and when a surveyor or technician can demonstrate that they have achieved PCA qualifications and accreditation, then both customers and employers will know that they have proven their trustworthiness and industry experience beyond reproach.
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.
In order to complete the CSDB/CSTDB and CSSW qualifications, candidates must also sit and pass a separate Legal and Health & Safety examination module.
