Training – Get Set for Winter

Surveyors: Structural Waterproofing

Ideal for those involved in the design, planning and installation of any structural waterproofing project below ground, our ‘surveyor in structural waterproofing training course’ is also the perfect foundation study for those looking to take the Certified Surveyor in Structural Waterproofing (CSSW) examination. The three day training course offers the latest in best practice, as well as providing updates for professionals in the industry.

Technicians: Damp & Timber

The two-day course is designed to enhance a technician’s knowledge and understanding, as well providing a good foundation for those who have recently commenced a career in the building preservation industry. Successful candidates will be entitled to refer to themselves as a ‘PCA Qualified Technician (PCAQT)’.

Evaluating Ventilation in Existing Buildings

Condensation and mould are the most common forms of dampness in buildings and it is becoming increasingly essential for anyone that inspects buildings, to understand the significant role that ventilation plays in controlling these issues and how to identify defects in ventilation systems.
