XWRK 0592 - Ground Disturbance Supervisor Training – ABCGA Endorsed

This online program was built on the success and content of the current Global Training Centre Ground Disturbance Level II® standardized program. In our opinion, this online program provides all the content of the Ground Disturbance Level II® plus the benefit of some additional information. We are confident that upon assessment by your company, this online program would be deemed equivalent in content. It is designed for any party that is supervising a ground disturbance, independently performing a ground disturbance, or issuing and receiving ground disturbance permits.

The program ensures that personnel is familiar with, and fully understand, all the regulations and variances involved when a ground disturbance takes place. This course is presented in a logical sequence – from the pre-planning stage to the close-out, all with a focus on damage prevention. Participants learn how to clarify sources when searching for underground facilities, provide notification to the facility owner and receive owner notification. Participants gain an understanding of the necessary approvals/crossing agreements and regulations necessary before creating a ground disturbance. They gain an understanding of line locating, including the use of electromagnetic equipment, and learn about types of exposure.

Participants will also learn how to do a back-fill inspection, as well as how to use permits and conduct pre-job meetings. Emergency response plans and what to do in case an underground facility is contacted are also covered. The practical exercise in the final module takes the participant through the process of building a ground disturbance checklist, using the knowledge gained within the course. Course content includes animated scenarios, expert character guideposts, interactive learning exercises, competency quiz questions, a full glossary and toolbox of regulations, codes, guides, downloadable sample documents, and also a defensible final exam.
