Training covers most of the technology that is used in locating underground services.

Training covers all aspects of professional locating instruments and how they are utilised in the field. Not only do we focus on the actual theory of the locator but cover other important areas including AS5488 standards, JSA (Job Safety Analysis) and other important aspects that are day-to-day factors in locating.
