    I got no where with the OUNC board. I think I offended him with the term "advanced training".

    Here is my new idea.

    The Cablevine puts on the "Locator Training Proficency Program". This program is a multi-stage training inititive. It's main goal is to educate the locator, not just fill the empty certificate box on the HR form for review time.

  2. Construction Season 2014!!

    by , April 4th, 2014 at 04:43 PM
    Up here in the great state of Minnesota (MINI-'SO-TAH') we are gearing up for construction season of 2014. I know in my local area we are looking at several items that make my ears perk up.
