We are proud to working in association with the PCA to host the CSSW examinations at our training facilities in Tonbridge, Kent. Trainees will be able to take part in our four-day intensive CSSW course, as well as our two-day examination preparation, before taking on the examinations.

As a nationally recognised professional qualification, the CSSW is for individuals who recommend design solutions after diagnosing problems with water entering structures below ground. To achieve this qualification, candidates are required to pass both the CSSW exam and the Legal and Health & Safety exam. If a candidate has already passed the CSRT, CSDB or CSTDB Legal and Health & Safety exam, they are usually exempt from doing this exam again.

Upcoming CSSW Examination
Details of the next CSSW examinations are below.

  • Legal, Health & Safety Examination – Newton Head Office, Tuesday 30th March 2021
  • Waterproofing Legal Aspects Training – Newton Head Office, Wednesday 31st March 2021

We strongly recommend that candidates who have not recently sat an exam sign up for the Examination Preparation course, as our expert tutors can help you practice exam techniques by reviewing past papers. This course also gives candidates a valuable opportunity to clarify any areas of uncertainty they might have prior to sitting the formal examination. The pass rate for those who take this course is significantly higher than those who don’t.
