Course Description

This 8-hour virtual instructor-led training (VILT) course reminds workers that there is a safe way to enter and exit the trench, keep materials away from the edge of the trench, look for standing water or atmospheric hazards, and never enter a trench unless it has been properly inspected.

This course suffices for a 1-day competent person level classroom certification training. The practical training and supervision should be performed at the jobsite. We can come out and conduct the necessary hands-on training to fulfill the competent person certification training at an additional cost.
