Workshops/Online Training/Certifications - MISS DIG System, Inc. - Certification_Wheel_12-17

MISS DIG 811 Safe Excavation Practices was created under the mandate of Public Act 174, when MISS DIG 811 became responsible for the education of stakeholders in the excavation community. This included facility owner/operators, locators and excavators. 

The MISS DIG 811 Certification Program offers excavators training and information on safety and utility damage prevention topics and best practices, at no cost to your organization. Participants with passing scores will receive certificates. They are stored and printable from MISS DIG 811 learning management system.

It also 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.
