Expert CAT & Genny Tuition

Cable Avoidance Tools, also more commonly known as CAT & Genny equipment, is an instrument used for detecting the presence and approximate location of buried services in advance of undertaking excavation works. A number of types of detecting technology can be employed by such instruments, including use of magnetic fields, radio frequencies, signal generation, metal detectors, ground-penetrating radar and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification).

Our CAT & Genny courses will teach delegates all the underpinning laws, regulations and Health and Safety information as well as the practical skills needed to safely and competently operate a CAT & Genny. CAT & Genny Training is imperative in order to prevent and avoid accidents while excavating.
