Competency Task Force NEW!
CAPULC’s application is currently on standby for Occupational Designation of Underground Facility Locators. Alberta is presently revamping their application process which allows us to revisit our application and meet requirements suggested by them to be accepted under the new application process. One of the largest criteria is to prove we have “Industry” Support. We would like to relaunch our Competency Task Force to establish formal general “Locating Standards”.
