Locate Management Institute Inc. (LMI) is under license with DBYD Certification Ltd ABN 88 617 374 946 (DCL) to deliver the Canadian Certified Locator Program in Canada.
The Canadian Certified Locator competency assessment program (Program) offered by LMI is designed to assess the level of an asset locator's theoretical knowledge and practical competency as at the date the assessment is conducted. LMI recognises an underground facility locator who has successfully completed the Program as a "Certified Locator" and lists the name and contact details of the Certified Locator on this website. The Program is supported and recognised internationally.
Certificates of Completion issued to Certified Locators by LMI denote only that Certified Locators have, on the date specified in the Certificate of Completion, demonstrated to LMI the level of theoretical and practical knowledge and competency required to be recognised as a Certified Locator by LMI. The Canadian Certified Locator Program recognizes two different categories of Certified Locator certifications:
The Program is not an accredited, mandated or industry-regulated program. Completion of, or participation in, the Program by a Certified Locator does not bestow or confer on the Certified Locator any formal accreditation or qualification. LMI does not guarantee or warrant the experience, expertise, knowledge or skill of the Certified Locator, nor that the Certified Locator is (or remains) qualified to provide facility location services, nor that the Certified Locator will be able to correctly or accurately locate underground facilities (including but not limited to infrastructure for electricity, gas, oil, telecommunications, water, network cabling, drainage, sewerage, and irrigation) on each attempted instance.
