RSCL/1 Cable Detection Product Familiarisation [1/2 day course]
The half day product familiarisation training can be run on the customer's site for no additional fee if preferred. Topics covered include:
• What are buried services?
• HSE Regulations and HSG47
• Cable Detection Product Features
• Product Demonstration and Practical Product Applications
• Using Cable Locator Accessories

RSCL/2 Cable Detection Train the Trainer Course [1 Day course]
Some organizations like to take the "Train the Trainer" option as it gives them the ability to set up an in house cable location and avoidance training session for new recruits as and when required, without involving an external training company. It is also helpful to run "refresher courses" in house to guarantee that longer serving staff has up to date training.
Other types of companies who find it useful are those who have a large staff turnover as it ensures that the people they put on site have all the necessary training to keep them safe while planning and mapping the buried services prior to excavating. Without an in house trainer they are spending large amounts of money, sometimes weekly to educate new staff with an external trainer. Alternatively they are sending untrained operators on site.
The "Train the Trainer" course lasts a full day and is given by a fully accredited CIBT Trainer. Topics covered include:
• Half Day Product Familiarisation Course
• How to go about Training/re-training staff
• Know your Audience
• Tips on Presenting
• Certification of Attendance
