What is the MISS DIG 811 Certification Program?
Under the mandate of Public Act 174, MISS DIG 811 is responsible for the education of stakeholders in the excavation community, including facility owner/operators, locators and excavators. The course explains, in detail, the MISS DIG 811 process and lays out damage prevention, safety practices and best practices. It covers requirements for underground facility owners as well as clarifying requirements for those excavators working near these underground lines. It provides practical, up-to-date tools which help navigate the process and bring about the most efficient, safe outcome possible. MISS DIG 811 Certification is currently good for 3 years and you can take the course online or attend a live workshop.
