The competent person for trenching and excavation class takes one day to complete, and can be conducted anywhere in the Ft Worth TX metro area on a weekday or on a Saturday, whichever works best for you. The excavation competent person class consists of PowerPoint, video, workshops, and testing to keep the trainees engaged.
