Cable Avoidance - CAT and Genny Training

Locating underground services, such as electricity and gas, during excavation work is not only essential to the health and safety of operatives working on an excavation it is also vital to prevent costly disruptions during construction and civil engineering projects.

As a result, it is important that those working on the roads, no matter if they are an Operative or a Supervisor, are fully trained in using a cable avoidance tool (CAT) along with a signal generator (Genny).

A non-accredited CAT and Genny training course is typically run as a half day course, where candidates learn about:

  • Relevant health and safety legislation
  • Understanding site plans and hazard avoidance
  • Safe systems of work and digging practices
  • Pre-use tests, maintenance and operational techniques for equipment

Candidates will usually be required to pass a multiple choice test and practical assessment using a CAT and Genny.

Upon successful completion of the course, candidates will typically be provided with a certificate of training and ID card which is valid for three years. Please note that any certification awarded will be accredited by the training provider themselves and will not be accredited by the City & Guilds.

If candidates require a City & Guilds accredited qualification, they will need to attend a Location and Avoidance of Underground Services training course which is also known as Unit 1 of the New Roads and Street Works course. For more information, please go to our NRSWA courses page.
