NADC Certified Drain Surveyor Training


The NADC Certified Drain Surveyor (CDS) 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.
