As a nationally recognised professional qualification, becoming a Certificated Surveyor of Structural Waterproofing (CSSW) requires an intensive training course and two exams before individuals can become certified.

Suitable for those involved in the design, planning and installation of below ground waterproofing systems, our intensive course runs for 3 days, ensuring trainees complete the course with a comprehensive understanding of below-ground structural waterproofing in both new-build and existing structures in-line with British Standard.

This course can be used as a foundation study for the PCA CSSW exam preparation course and CSSW examinations, which Newton can also facilitate.

  • Anticipated defects

As a visitor from Australia, the Newton gang were very friendly and helpful. The venue for the PCA training course was excellent with relevant displays of systems and products. Waterproofing knowledge of our hosts, especially Stuart, was reassuring for our crew, being on foreign soil and out of our comfort zone. Very well hosted and catering was great, especially pizza. We will be recommending this training for our Australian colleagues and looking forward to further developing our relationship with Newton and the PCA.”Andrew Gollé, Australian Institute of Waterproofing Commitee Member
