NPORS Cable Avoidance Tool

As many of you know Kentra Training was established in 1997 by Norman Kennish. Straight away the company registered with NPORS as a training provider. Our registration is number 66 and we are now one of the longest serving TP’s with them, delivering nearly 100 different training courses, including our own unique NPORS Small Plant and Portable Tools course and also the NPORS Cable Avoidance Tool, which is what this blog is about.

Cable avoidance tools use signals to scan the ground to help discover underground pipes or cables to avoid any risk if injury or damage the pipes or cables. Cable locators or ground penetrating radars are used before any excavation to pinpoint exactly where the utilities are underground.

For more course information have a look at our Course syllabus and details blog.
