GROUND DISTURBANCE TRAINING FAQS

Who needs Ground Disturbance Level II training?

Level II training is recommended for anyone supervising ground disturbance work, performing a ground disturbance alone, or issuing/receiving ground disturbance approvals.

Do I need a Ground Disturbance Level II certificate?

Your employer may require Level II certification, depending on your role. If you’re looking for employment in industries involved in ground disturbance, getting certified can be an advantage.

Is this the latest Ground Disturbance training?

Yes. This course includes the most recent updates to the Ground Disturbance 201 Standard established by the Alberta Common Ground Alliance, an international leader in damage prevention. It is an online version of the current Global Training Centre Ground Disturbance Level II® standardized classroom program.

Will my Danatec Ground Disturbance training be recognized?

This course is endorsed by the Alberta Common Ground Alliance (ABCGA) to their Ground Disturbance 201 Standard, which is well-recognized across North America. Ask your employer or prospective employer what certification training they require for those involved in a ground disturbance.

Is this training valid outside of Alberta and Canada?

This course was developed under Canadian federal and provincial regulations and standards, for certification of employees working in Canada. Associates of the Common Ground Alliance (CGA) can be found across the United States (https://commongroundalliance.com/map), while damage prevention itself is an international practice. That said, you should always check your local regulations and ask your employer to confirm what certifications you require.

Do I need to renew my Ground Disturbance Level II certificate? How long is my certification good for?

Your certification is valid for three years from the date issued. After three years, if you still work in ground disturbance, you may need to re-certify.

Can I print my certificate right away?

Yes, your certificate will be immediately available for print. And when you download the digital badge, you can share that online, too.

Can I take this training on my phone or tablet?

Yes, you can. As long as you’re connected to the internet, you can train on any device.

What grade do I need to pass the exam?

You’ll need a score of 80% on the exam to get your Ground Disturbance Level II certification. But don’t worry, the course is designed to make absorbing and retaining the information easier. Plus, you can build your confidence and test your knowledge with quizzes along the way.

How many times can I take the exam?

You can repeat the exam up to three times. If you are unsuccessful in passing the exam, you will be required to take the full course again.

Can I start training right away?

Yes! Just click the button to buy and go through our secure checkout process. You’ll be able to start training right away.

How long does the training take to complete?

Expect to spend about 6 hours on the Ground Disturbance Level II training and exam. Passing this supervisor-level course is a significant achievement, but learners say we’ve made it an entertaining experience.

Do I have to take the training all at once?

No. You can pause and take breaks or finish the course content in one sitting, but the final exam must be completed all at once. That said, it’s so good, you might not be able to tear yourself away.

Does the course ‘time out’?

There’s no time limit to complete the course.

Do you offer Ground Disturbance Level I training?
