• Newton Waterproofing Systems have seen great success with our comprehensive training schemes offered to our Specialist Basement Contractors. As such, we are proud and excited to be working alongside the Property Care Association (PCA) to deliver training for the highly desirable CSSW qualification at our head office in Tonbridge, Kent.

    Nationally recognised, the Certificated Surveyor in Structural Waterproofing qualification is specific to those individuals who are involved in diagnosing and designing solutions for problems with water entering below ground structures.

    Developed by the PCA, the CSSW qualification is only suitable for professionals who have experience within the construction and waterproofing industry with prior knowledge of below ground waterproofing. By undertaking the training scheme, candidates will be competent at designing a structural waterproofing scheme, as required by BS 8102:2009.

For our first CSSW course, Newton are proud to be working in partnership with the Australian Institute of Waterproofing (AIW) and our Australian distributors, Bayset. During the last week of August, we will be hosting six industry professionals from Australia, along with another six professionals from the UK, including two Newton employees for an intensive five-day course.

Our in-house experts will tutor the candidates over the five-day course on the key principals of structural waterproofing, covering Type A, B and C systems in-line with BS 8102:2009, waterproofing design and origins of water ingress. To qualify as a CSSW, candidates must successfully pass a 2.5 hour written paper and a 20-minute oral exam on the content of the training course and an additional 2 hour Legal and Health & Safety written paper.

Successful candidates will be awarded the ‘ABBE/PCA Level 3 Certificated Surveyor in Structural Waterproofing’ through the Awarding Body for Building Education (ABBE) and will be able to add the post-nominal letters ‘CSSW’ to their name.

Further to this new venture, Newton Waterproofing Systems will also be collaborating with the PCA to provide on-the-job training for students on the CITB Structural Waterproofing Apprenticeship, giving apprentices hands-on training experience in the sector.
