Who is this training course for?
Our damp and timber surveyor training course is designed for those already involved or who wish to become involved in the surveying of timber infestation/decay and dampness in buildings. Ideally delegates should have a background in construction as well as some related skill, knowledge or experience.
Structure of the damp and timber surveyor course
The course is divided into three one day modules. You may either attend each module separately or the complete course over three consecutive days.
Flexible learning for prospective surveyors
You are free to choose whether you would like to attend each training module consecutively over three days, or we can arrange for you to attend the sessions separately over a more suitable time frame for your convenience.
What people say about our surveyor training
Complete your surveyor qualification
Attending this training alone does not entitle an attendee to say they have attained a PCA qualification. See separate information about attaining the formal qualification via the CSDB/CSTDB examination here.
The Health & Safety training elements that used to be covered in Day 3 are now delivered via the new PCA Health & Safety e-learning module. It is strongly recommended that delegates complete this e-learning as part of their study, and especially if they are planning to sit the CSDB/CSTDB examination.
Thinking you might prefer the NEW Online training?
