Other topics include undertaking a ground disturbance, and distances involved when searching for an underground facility.

Ground Disturbance – Level II

Level II® 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 Level II® personnel are familiar with, and fully understand, all the regulations and variances involved when a ground disturbance takes place. The course is presented in a logical sequence – from the pre-planning stage to the actual dig – and highlights the “‘musts” compared to the “shoulds”. Level II® is the standardized program recognized by industry regulators. 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 learn to create a plot plan/site drawing, gain an understanding of line locating 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.

Objectives are tested by written competency exam. Certification, valid for three years, is issued upon completion of objectives.This course is assessed to the ABCGA 201 Ground Disturbance Standard.
