Make your utility locating operation more successful

The PULSE™ Development Program is a comprehensive training system for underground locators (i.e., Damage Prevention Specialists). It has been used in the underground locating industry for over 12 years.

This three-week employee training program was designed to help underground locating operations to:

  • Increase employee productivity
  • Improve the accuracy of locates
  • Reduce the number of damages to underground utilities
  • Improve customer satisfaction
  • Minimize the number of accidents on the job
  • Improve documentation provided by employees

Overcome training challenges by using our accelerated learning training program

We conducted an extensive analysis of the underground locator job and identified the most important knowledge, skills, and job-related personality traits that an underground locator needs to be successful. This competency model became the foundation of our PULSE training program, which we have continued to improve year after year.

The PULSE Development Program provides the following benefits:

  • Reduces overall costs because training efficiency is increased
  • Ensures comprehensiveness because the training process is standardized
  • Helps people to learn faster
  • Motivates employees to learn
  • Helps employees remember more technical details of the job
