Prevent Damage to Underground Services

Essential training for anyone in the civil construction and landscape industries on responsibilities and duty of care to prevent damage and disruption to essential services, such as electricity, gas, telecommunications and water.
The RIICCM202E training (underground services) course is a practical approach to learning and understanding how to read and interpret plans, and how to use a service locator, and includes an overview of the Before You Dig Australia (BYDA) system. 
Learn how to locate assets and prevent damage, avoid service disruptions, delays to projects, costly repairs and (worst case scenario) injury or death. 

During the location of the underground services training you will learn how to:

  • Follow procedures, and relevant industry legislation relating to asset location
  • Read and interpret plans from BYDA and other sorts of relevant site plans
  • Underground and above-ground marking techniques using chalk and paint
  • How to report on damaged services and assets
  • How to properly identify different types of pipes, cables, and structures using a service locating wand / underground cable and pipe cable locator (RD7100 or Cat 4)
  • Who the services and utilities belong to (Telstra, Energex, Origin, Urban Utilities etc)

Our locating underground services courses are designed for those who engage in any digging, excavation, and/or drilling works in and around the vicinity of existing pipes, cables and structures situated underground.

Whether you’re currently employed and looking to build your skills, or you’re looking for a new career pathway, the RIICCM202E Identify locate and protect underground services course is a promising option.

Before You Dig Australia (previously known as Dial Before You Dig) is a FREE national referral service designed to assist in preventing damage and disruption to Australia’s vast infrastructure networks which provide essential services, we use every day. Utility locators utilise Dial Before You Dig to navigate and understand what services exist in specific areas of work, making it easier and more accurate to mark out where the services are underground.

After undertaking the RIICCM202E Identify locate and protect underground services training course, students will understand how to use the DBYD service throughout their working careers.
