Ground Disturbance 201 Standard

Applications Now Open for New BC Ground Disturbance Standard

We are pleased to announce that we are accepting applications to access our Ground Disturbance 201 Standard (British Columbia).  Training providers in British Columbia who are looking for endorsement to the new BCCGA Ground Disturbance 201 Standard can download an application to access form here.

What we need from our stakeholders –

  • Utility Owners – require ground disturbers to have training that has been endorsed by BCCGA
  • Training Providers – ensure that your training complies with the BCCGA 201 Standard
  • Ground Disturbers – ensure that the training you are taking is compliant with the GD 201 Standard!

The Ground Disturbance 201 Standard (British Columbia) has been developed by the Alberta Common Ground Alliance (ABCGA) Training Standards Committee with input from stakeholders in the ground disturbance and buried facility damage prevention communities in British Columbia through the BCCGA. It defines the minimum content and student evaluation requirements for classroom and online training programs suitable for those that wish to ultimately become ground disturbance supervisors.

Note that ABCGA is managing the application and certification process on behalf of BCCGA.
