CAT & Genny is a health and safety training course that teaches operators and supervisors how to detect underground services using cable avoidance techniques. During the course, you will learn how to properly use the Cable Avoidance Tool (CVAT) and the Signal Generator (Genny). You’ll be able to safely avoid dangerous underground services using the knowledge you’ve gained in accordance with HSG 47. This is a group session for between 4 and 8 learners.

The CAT & Genny training is delivered in a single day in the classroom and includes practical demonstrations. INFRA Skills can teach this course in-house if there is a minimum number of attendees. You will gain experience in locating underground services. The certification is valid for three years.
Attendees should bring any waterproofs they may have, as well as safety boots, a high visibility jacket, and a safety helmet.
