This course is aimed at Managers, Supervisors and Operatives in construction, utilities, telecommunications and petrochemical industries who are required to locate underground apparatus and services during planned excavations using the RD7000 and RD8000 units of the SPX Radiodetection RD Range Location Tools.
The RD7000 and RD8000 Locator Operator Course involves hands on use of the actual locators to detect and trace the route of buried services. This will cover the different types of buried services that exist, current legislation and best practice concerning detecting buried services, the safety implications of not using a locator and associated ancillary equipment, use of local utility plans, observation of evidence in the street etc.
Since the safe use of cable avoidance tools require that delegates consult safety notices and read and thoroughly understand the manufacturer’s instruction manual, English literacy and language comprehension are important requirements for any user.
This course comprises a practical and a theory test. Delegates successfully completing the course, including the written and practical assessments are awarded a Certificate of Training and a Photo ID Card, valid for 3 years.
