Certified Drain Surveyor (CDS Course)
The NADC approved training course will provide CCTV operatives with the ability to fully understand the practical aspects of a CCTV investigation, the ability to accurately identify defects, apply the correct codes and to make a condition assessment of the pipe with an appropriate repair recommendation. This course includes domestic and commercial surveys which also includes schools, colleges, hospitals, housing estates, industrial estates and private drainage systems up to 9″ or 225mm diameter.
There is a need in the drainage industry for companies that carry out domestic and light commercial CCTV Surveys to prove their competence in the area of CCTV investigation through a recognised qualification. The course has been designed by the WRC in conjunction with the NADC and the National Drainage Academy. It is fully compliant with the Domestic Drain Code section of the Manual of Sewer Condition Classification 5th Edition.
As approved trainers for the NADC we can now provide this course.
On successful completion of this course operatives will be fully competent in domestic drainage CCTV surveying and will receive a recognised and approved qualification. This gives individuals and companies a recognised method of demonstrating their abilities to employers and will ensure a standard of competency within the industry.

– Drain ownership and sewerage law
– Domestic drain design, drain misconnections and components
