    no there is not.

    but there is a local co that advertises that and their videos i've seen are worthless junk. no real info, location or footage. it's like watching a silent movie.

    steve has had me redo the videos from customers that have had their lines done by this co.

    anybody can push a camera into a line.

    but it takes years of real plumbing experience to know what your looking at. if they don't know how to install it, how do they even know right from wrong

    phoebe it is

      I guess it depends on what you mean by certificate. There are likely some "Home Inspection" franchises that offer a certificate as a promotion gimmick for their guys. There are also some Cities where you can be "certified" to inspect laterals for inspection programs. However, I do not know of a State sanctioned "Certificate Program".

          theres a certification called PACP (Pipeline assessment certification program) and another but I don't recall the name. They are to standardize the way inspections are reported so engineers have a better understanding of whats being reported. These programs are used for inspections of city mains but I don't know why they couldn't be used in residential other then the high cost of the programs/software (probably much more then the cost of a push camera)
