Training occurs on working job sites that present real life situations and provide extensive hands-on experience locating municipal, commercial and residential utilities. Locating underground utilities can be confusing without field experience, and many questions are answered as situations arise on the job site.
An individualized training system is used to present locating concepts in an easy to understand format that progresses from easy to very difficult locating conditions. The first stage of training starts with basic concepts in user friendly areas that will ensure the ability to locate utilities without distractions or challenging conditions. The next stage incorporates more difficult areas to locate in. The final stage of training finishes with the most challenging areas for locates. Training and experience with actual locating equipment will instill confidence as you move from student to Certified Utility Locator.
