Training and Safety

Miss Utility offers free ITIC training and Damage Prevention Seminars.
For ITIC training, a Miss Utility staff member will come to your site to review the ITIC application, rules and procedures with your staff. Length of training depends on the size and experience of the group. Please contact Dora Parks at 410-782-2026 or email at dparks@missutility.net to discuss your ITIC training needs.

For Damage Prevention and Safety Training, a training team consisting of a Miss Utility representative and one or more facility owners will travel to your location of choice to discuss basic damage prevention principles as they apply to the region in which you are working. The training includes information as outlined below using a power point presentation. Handouts include educational materials and promotional items. Training typically lasts for 3hours and includes time for questions and answers.

Contact Dora Parks at 410-782-2026 or dparks@missutility.net to receive a request form to schedule your training event.
