Trade body’s timber and damp training launches at Stirling University
National trade body the Property Care Association (PCA) is bringing its gold standard surveyor training in timber and damp to Stirling University.
Property and construction companies across Scotland can invest in specialist training that focuses on the issues caused by damp, timber infestation and decay within buildings.
Traditionally held at the PCA’s headquarters in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, the PCA surveyor courses are seen as the industry benchmark for training surveyors. The Surveying Timber & Dampness in Buildings course will now be held at the new location at Stirling University.
Throughout February and March 2022, the PCA is offering Scottish property & construction professionals the chance to become a Certificated Surveyor of Timber and Dampness in Buildings by completing and passing the CSTDB examinations.
By hosting a course at Stirling University, the PCA aims to ensure property & construction specialists across Scotland and the north of England can benefit from opportunities to further their professionalism and knowledge.
The course is separated into three modules:
- Condensation and Dampness
- Legal Aspects, Surveying Methodology and Report Writing
The Surveying Timber and Dampness in Buildings course takes place at Stirling University from Tuesday 22 to Thursday 24 February, with a CSTDB exam preparation course on Tuesday 15 and Wednesday, 16 March - followed by CSTDB examinations on Tuesday 29 and Wednesday, 30 March.
