Locator Certification Program

DBYD Certification Ltd offers certification for Locators working with DBYD asset owners and contractors. The Certification recognises Locators who have demonstrated a high level of understanding and practical expertise that meet industry and DBYD member requirements.

Our vision is to reduce damage and have safer communities through training and Locator Certification.

Become a Certified Locator

Certified Locators have a nationally recognised industry qualification that distinguishes them from “DYI” or self-authorised locators. To gain certification locators must pass a comprehensive theory assessment and practical field assessment conducted by an industry assessor. Certified Locators will need to present appropriate equipment and demonstrate expertise to safely and competently use different locating techniques to the best industry standards possible.

Renew Your Certificate

DCL will remind Certified Locators of their need to renew by email at least four weeks before date of expiry. To renew your certificate, you will need to provide a statutory declaration to verify that you have done a minimum number of 100 hours of locating in the last 12 months and confirm that you use the required equipment.
