Ground Disturbance 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. Certification is valid for 3 years.
