Course Description:

Excavation projects are critical for the development and construction of utility systems, such as drinking and wastewater pipes, traditional and renewable energy sources, and broadband internet. To reduce damages, all safety protocols within the excavation process must be adhered to from the beginning of a project through its conclusion. These safety procedures usually begin with a call to a state one-call notification center prior to excavation
