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 "

"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."

Tim Prescott ACABE

Tim Prescott ACABE

Assistant Building Control Surveyor at Butler & Young Approved Inspectors

"Pleased to have passed my NVQ Level 6 in Building Control as a first step to becoming a chartered building control surveyor. The course is designed to give a really good overview of the role of a building control surveyor, whether in LABC or as an AI, and is a great way of learning whilst working in a related role. I would recommend it to anybody whether just starting out in building control or more advanced in their careers looking to develop their understanding of the various pieces of legislation which affect the industry. Thanks to David Barley MSc,BSc (Hons) MCIOB, C. Build E, FCABE, now at Total Training and Development Ltd for facilitating the course and increasing knowledge throughout the industry."

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."
