This course covers OSHA standard 1926 subpart P: soil classification; sloping and benching; aluminum hydraulic shoring; requirements for protective systems; manufactured tabulated data; site specific engineering; and general requirements.

9AM - NoonLine Locating Workshop

This session will introduce locating and marking underground lines. This two-fold training will begin in the classroom with an overview of locating theory and technology. We will then have hands-on instruction outdoors to put into application what you have learned. You may bring your own locating device, or one may be provided.

9AM - NoonMembers Service Area Mapping

For our General Members (Underground Facility Owners/Operators) Only.

Improve your Service Area Mapping to ensure precise locate requests near your registered underground assets. When mapping accuracy is lacking, member companies may end up receiving requests for areas significantly distant from their actual asset locations. Enhancing your service area mapping not only saves time and money but also ensures that you receive only relevant locate requests for marking your facilities.

This training is perfect for individuals who are new to GIS or looking to expand their skills in service area mapping. Unlock the potential of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) with our extensive training session designed for beginners. In this course, we will provide a thorough introduction to GIS concepts and showcase practical applications using QGIS, a robust and free open-source GIS software. The primary focus will be on enhancing your efficiency in creating and maintaining service area maps.
