CCTV Course Testimonials

Course Testimonials

This is what contractors are saying about the new NADC-CDS course

“A well structured and presented course that covers CCTV drain surveys in a complete and informative manner. Having carried out other such courses, I found this one to be exactly what I needed in order to present my clients with a professional and complete survey report. Highly recommended and most certainly a must for us engineers!”

’It’s about time that our industry was regulated and the work undertaken and courses offered by the NADC go a long way to helping that process. We have recently put some of our engineers through the CCTV survey course and as a result, although we already work to WRc standards, we are all now more familiar with the quality and detail required. Even experienced engineers need training from time to time.’’

The first thing is I have attended many training courses this year and the CCTV course I and my team attended at the NADC academy was given by an experienced drain engineer who knew what he was talking about, he took time to ensure all participants understood the modules. The course content is very informative and a lot can be learnt. The modules were precise and put over well by Steven McIver, the CCTV exam just ensures that you know. I am proud of my qualification and would recommend other drainage contractors to have their operatives trained at the NADC’s National Drainage Academy.

I recently sat the NADC CCTV Drainage Survey course ran by Martin Beattie and Peter Stacey with 3 members of my team and I just wanted to express my gratitude to you for arranging and delivering the session. I have attended other drainage related courses with my team in the past ran by different associations and we all feel that yours was by far the best we have completed, even down to the choice of venue. Both Martin and Peter made everyone feel welcome and included in the discussions and also ensured that all attendees were comfortable and understanding the material we were leaning.

I feel the content of the modules was extremely helpful and unlike other courses I have sat, entirely relevant. I believe everyone will benefit from using the Homebuyers Survey way of writing as all surveyors will be using the same terminology, making it easier for clients to understand and other engineers to be able to pinpoint any problems more effectively using the report. Since the course, I have recommended to contacts of mine in the drainage trade that they also attend, telling them how beneficial we found the course.

We really appreciate the service the NADC provide and look forward to attending more courses in the future.

Excellent 2 day course run by Ian & Ray, (Viewline), these guys did an outstanding job, excellent course material from beginning to end. With Ian’s outstanding knowledge of the industry, you knew any questions could be answered with confidence and put into terms we could all understand. All of our guys will be attending this course, just chatting to Ray and Ian over lunch is informative enough and well worth the effort.”

I’ve learnt more in the last two days than I did in all the years I’ve been working on drains.”

Excellent course and well delivered content which was all refreshingly relevant to the end product of our drain surveying operatives obtaining as much information from site as possible, recording the information efficiently and providing the end user, for example a building surveyor or insurance company, with a detailed but universally understandable report. The course also provided much needed clarity on the issues of ownership and private or water company responsibilities. I would strongly recommend this course to any company providing drain inspection / surveying services. In our opinion this course and others provided by the NADC engage with our operatives like no others previously attended because there is a mutual respect due to the content being delivered with the wealth of experience both Martin and Peter have of providing the end product drainage services.

Informative, interactive presented by someone who has actually surveyed a drain and speaks the same language as us sewer men. Would happily recommend to anyone

We sent 2 people to the course, Jordan Bayliss who is a general assistant and works out on the road supporting our engineers and Matthew Yates who is the technical manager based at the office who codes all surveys handed to him, both members of staff found the course to be very insightful and believe what the learnt will be very beneficial to them in their work, they found the course was presented to a very high standard and the course trainers to be very experienced and helpful, due to the feedback received from both Matt and Jordan we have now booked to send 2 more engineers on the course.

“Would like to say a big thank you to Ian & Ray from Viewline who delivered the training course I attended on Thursday 16th & Friday 17th in Coalville, Leicester for NADC certified Drainage Survey Training course. Two great guys with a font of knowledge who delivered the training course superbly. You made us feel welcome & so relaxed during the 2 days and the content of the course modules was spot on & the pace of the course, I learned a quite few things myself as I am only a novice in the surveying arena and went away very satisfied. So glad I attended, cheers Ian, Ray & NADC.”
