Who is the course for?

The cable avoiding tool and signal generator (genny) are commonly used to locate underground cables and pipes on site, but they are often used by untrained staff. This could result in errors being made, and the possibility of accidents occurring. This course will enable candidates to understand fully the correct operation and functions of this equipment.

  • Theory of cable location
  • Controls and display indications
  • Calibrating, and pre-use tests
