Important note about this course and Certified Locators:
By completing this course you are NOT automatically a Certified Locator™.

Please be aware some major utilities, such as Telstra, specify that access and the location of their assets must be completed by a Certified Locator. Without this certification, any location activities involving their assets, such as accessing pits, manholes, etc, are considered unauthorised.

Some civil constructors also require utility location services to be completed by locators who are certified.  Locator certification is a separate accreditation process that is managed by DYBD Certification Ltd. The process comprises a theory and field competency assessment. For information on how to become a Certified Locator please visit the DBYD Certification website.
