DBYD Certification Ltd (DCL) and Locate Management Institute (LMI) announce their partnership introducing the Certified Locator Program in Canada.
Canadian Certified Locator brings Australia & New Zealand's Certified Locator program to Canada. This internationally recognized program, which uses Locate Management Institutes (LMI) Utility Advanced Line Locating (UALL) course as a training option, certifies locators by industry experts to distinguish them from self-authorized locators.
The certification identifies Certified Locators as having the expertise to complete all types of locating work to industry standards. Hiring locators that are not certified may be a risk to your business and the community.
To gain certification, locators must pass a comprehensive theory exam and practical field test conducted by an industry assessor. The assessment tests for competent use of equipment, workplace safety knowledge, compliance with OHS practices, knowledge and understanding of the quality levels of Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE), problem-solving skills and managing abnormal operating conditions.
