Some organizations like to take the “Train the Trainer” option as it gives them the ability to set up an in house cable location and avoidance training session for new recruits as and when required, without involving an external training company. It is also helpful to run “refresher courses” in house to guarantee that longer serving staff has up to date training.
Other types of companies who find it useful are those who have a large staff turnover as it ensures that the people they put on site have all the necessary training to keep them safe while planning and mapping the buried services prior to excavating. Without an in house trainer they are spending large amounts of money, sometimes weekly to educate new staff with an external trainer. Alternatively they are sending untrained operators on site.
The “Train the Trainer” course lasts a full day and is given by a fully accredited CIBT Trainer.
