Utility Locator Training and Certification Banner

The utility locator certification course was developed at the request of One-Call of Wyoming. One-Call of Wyoming funded Casper College to develop a utility locator certification course to train and certify utility locators in Wyoming.The utility locator certification course is designed to train and certify utility locators on the basic methods for locating and verifying underground utility lines. There are three parts to the course:• lecture• lab• certification.The utility locator certification course is offered either in the classroom or as a hybrid online class. Students who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate of locating competency from our program partner Staking University, a nationally recognized underground utility locator certification training center. All classes are limited to 8 students to allow for quality instructor/student interaction.

Governor of Wyoming, Matt MeadeThe courses we offer are:

ELTR 1545 is our five-day classroom course, four days for lecture and labs, and the last day for certification testing. The lecture portion consists of theory and practical field demonstrations. The lab portion consist of students using locating equipment to locate utility lines on the Casper College campus.

ELTR 1545 Hybrid is our online hybrid class which is designed so that the student will do all the class lectures on line and take review quizzes over the lecture materials. Once the quizzes are completed the student will take a review final they must pass with a score of 70 % to be able to attend a two day lab class where they will perform hands on locating and take the practical exam on the last day. Students have approximately four weeks to complete the online portion and come to the lab section the following week.

ELTR 1645 is our accelerated locator class and is designed for the experienced locator as we cover the same material as our ELTR 1545 and 1545 Hybrid courses in three days instead of five. We recommend you have two years of locating experience to take this class.
