“Very informative course and PCA lecturers were very knowledgeable and helpful. Thoroughly recommend.”
(Bromford Housing, Jan 2018 delegate)

“I definitely learnt a lot as a Senior Surveyor and it was really good that John [the trainer] listened to the way we do things and how we can improve the way we work. I also will never look at properties the same again and it is reassuring to know that I can always refer to the PCA if I need help in the future.”
