This unit of competency is based on RIICCM202E Identify, locate and protect underground services when working in the civil construction industry.
Damage to our underground infrastructure can be expensive and potentially very dangerous, being able to identify these assets is critical for any organisation involved in excavating in a civil construction environment.
Underground services are those services such as gas, electricity, internet and telephone that are required for modern life. It is a requirement that all attempts are made to locate these services before using worksite equipment that may cut or damage these services. Most states and territories have a Dial Before You Dig style provision that can be used to provide information and plans to assist in identifying where underground service and cables are located.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
We require students to hold Construction Induction/White Card (completion of the unit CPCCWHS1001 – Prepare to work safely in the construction industry or equivalent) to enrol for this unit.
We run two courses for our underground services course:
Students with Minimal or No Experienced (Beginner): candidates must hold a white card (or equivalent).
Students with Relevant Industry Experience (Experienced): candidates must hold a white card (or equivalent) and have a minimum of 3 months experience in general construction, communication, plumbing, electrical and building maintenance industries.
Participants must be able to converse and comprehend basic English. Participants will complete language, numeracy and literacy assessment on course commencement to assess their capacity to meet language requirements. Participants will also need to have the physical capacity to undertake the practical components of this course.
