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 theoretical knowledge 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 “DIY” 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.
This four hour training course covers the requirements and regulatory obligations of locating and identifying subsurface utilities for Site Managers, HSE Managers Supervisors and Leading Hands on construction sites where excavation work is proposed to be carried out.
The course will inform participants of their legislative obligations and will show how to apply Australian Standard 5488 to reduce the possibility of damage and additional cost.
