Feb. 29, 2012 - PRLog -- UK trade body the Property Care Association (PCA) has launched a new initiative, designed to recognise the professionalism of its members.

The Association has launched its own Continuous Professional Development (CPD) scheme for surveyors, working within the structural waterproofing, wood preservation, damp-proofing, flood remediation and structural repair sectors.

To maintain accreditation on the CPD scheme, participants must collect points for the work study they take part in. CPD points are allocated through attendance on courses, meetings and any form of private or organised study that leads to the improvement and broadening of knowledge and skills.

The PCA is recognised for its commitment to training and technical expertise and the CPD programme joins a number of initiatives from the trade body, developed to support the professionalism of those operating in the building preservation and protection sectors.

These include training programmes and annual awards, as well as regular regional meetings, which allow members to share best practice and learn from others in the industry.  

Steve Hodgson, general manager of the PCA, said: “This CPD scheme has been established to provide a structured framework for PCA members who endeavour to develop their skills and knowledge in a way that can be easily verified and demonstrated.

“Individuals taking part are issued with a CPD registration card that can be used to show their ongoing commitment to learning and their personal development.”

The PCA can be found at www.property-care.org or by calling 0844 375 4301.

A video is also available to view online at www.property-care.org/video-folder/pca-member-video which explains to consumers about the work of PCA members.

The Property Care Association (PCA) represents the UK’s structural waterproofing, wood preservation, damp-proofing, flood remediation and structural repair sectors.

The Association is a member of TrustMark the scheme supported by Government, to help property owners find reliable and trustworthy tradespeople to make home improvements.

It incorporates the British Wood Preserving and Damp-proofing Association (BWPDA), which has been in formation for more than 80 years.

PCA contractor members are all carefully vetted before being awarded membership - and are then subject to rigorous auditing procedures once admitted to the Association.

As well as delivering a trusted repair procedure, PCA members are able to carry out specialist surveys as part of the house-buying procedure  to identify potential problems – as well as a range of other services  designed to preserve and protect homes and buildings across the UK.

To find a PCA member log on to www.property-care.org and select the ‘Find A Member’ service.
