Sean Footitt ACABE

Sean Footitt ACABE

Building Control Surveyor - East Midlands Building Consultancy

"The NVQ Level 6 in Building Control was very well presented and supported and on completion which took 14 months allowed me to achieve Associate level of the CABE, highly recommended."

Kayleigh Tubb C. Build E MCABE

Kayleigh Tubb C. Build E MCABE

Building Control Surveyor - Stroma Building Control

"Back in March 2019 I completed my NVQ Level 6 in Building Control provided by Total Training and Development Ltd and gained everything I could from that course.

With that a year on I have just passed my Professional Interview with CABE and now a Chartered Building Engineer whilst only working in Building Control for 3 years. Without the help of David through this I don’t think I would be where I am today.

I can’t thank David enough for all the support he provided me not only throughout my NVQ but also when writing my Technical Submission and prepping me the day before my Interview!

So once again thank you so so much! I would HIGHLY recommend Total Training and Development Ltd if you are looking for a Building Control Course "

George Parkes C Build E MCABE BSC (Hons)

George Parkes C Build E MCABE BSC (Hons)

Building Control Surveyor (Leeds) at Bureau Veritas

"To any trainee/graduate building control surveyors out there looking to gain valuable CPD, I would strongly recommend undertaking the NVQ Level 6 Diploma in Building Control run by Total Training and Development Ltd. As someone who has completed the course, I can say first hand how beneficial it was in helping me gain gull professional membership with CABE and has put me on the right path to achieving my career goals."

Kerri Branson

Kerri Branson

Principal Building Control Surveyor at East Northamptonshire Council

The NVQ Level 6 Diploma in Building Control was useful to our trainee surveyor as it was the only recognised qualification, we could find out there that filled the gap between her Law Degree and Principal Entry to CABE.

The qualification suited the “on the job” training role we wanted the trainee to take and it was not a long drawn out process.

David’s one to one support for each unit during the course progression was invaluable to me and our trainee. The mentoring side was new to me at this level and our trainee had little construction background at the time. David was very good at making sure we were following the correct route throughout, he was always encouraging and helpful.

Our trainee has now taken on the post of Building Control Surveyor and is working towards her full CABE membership.

Sophie Adams C. Build E MCABE

Sophie Adams C. Build E MCABE

Building Control Surveyor at East Northamptonshire Council

I started my Building Control journey in 2016 with no prior knowledge of the Building Regulations or the construction process. I started my level 6 NVQ in 2017 and I found the course to be enjoyable; Dave Barley was always keen and eager to assist or answer any questions I had. I found that the NVQ had a good mix of activities, including writing reports, producing PowerPoints or putting together diaries showing contraventions or risks over a few weeks at a time. This meant that I had to attend site either with a colleague or alone in order to obtain the information I needed. This allowed me to learn on the job but with a certain goal on mind. I subsequently completed my NVQ in 2018 and in November 2019 I had my Professional Interview with CABE which I am pleased to say I passed. I am now a Chartered Surveyor and the NVQ level 6 assisted in providing me with the basic knowledge on all aspects of Building Control to allow me to build my knowledge and ultimately pass my Professional Interview.

Tech CABE Project Manager at Total Building Control

"The NVQ Level 3: Diploma in Building Control Technical Support delivered by Total Training and Development Ltd enabled me to achieve this, as well as gaining that valuable student membership of the CABE. I completed my NVQ in December 2019 and was able to upgrade my membership from Student to Tech CABE.
I have now started my NVQ Level 6: Diploma in Building Control again with Total Training and Development Ltd, which on successful completion will enable me to upgrade from Tech CABE to Associate Member. Both these qualifications are accredited by the CABE and have enabled me to place myself on a direct route to professional membership with the CABE, with my ultimate goal of becoming chartered and holding the designatory title of MCABE."

Building Control Surveyor at Assent Building Control

The NVQ Level 6 Diploma in Building Control provided an excellent overview on all aspects of Building Control. The modules were extremely well designed and relevant, and TTD’s method of 121 mentoring and prompt feedback made the process seamless.

The course offers a route to achieve full membership with the CABE and is a great way to learn, whilst carrying out your day to day activity. Now I have successfully achieved my NVQ Level 6 Diploma in Building Control I am now eligible for the grade of ACABE with the CABE and I’m now looking forward to working towards full membership. I would like to thank David for all his support and highly recommend the course.

Tania Underwood Tech CABE

Tania Underwood Tech CABE

Administrator and Quality Manager at Studious Ltd

The NVQ Level 3: Diploma in Building Control Technical Support has been invaluable in helping me achieve my Tech CABE membership. I started the course in November 2019 and completed it in June 2020. It has really developed my understanding in this area and Dave Barley, Head of Training and Development, was always full of encouragement. He was always on hand to answer any questions and his one to one support was greatly appreciated. The course itself had a good variation of reports, powerpoints and diary entries which my work role could incorporate and enabled me to complete the course in an achievable timescale.
