The Diploma in Excavation and Trenching – Level 4 is designed for individuals who want to learn the fundamentals of excavation and trenching guidelines. Excavation and trenching refers to the process of digging up and creating an excavation in the ground for various purposes. A trench created in this manner is usually narrow but deeper in depth. In civil engineering, trenches are mainly created to install underground infrastructure and utilities such as gas mains, water mains and telephone lines. In archaeology, trenches are dug up by archaeologists in order to search and excavate ancient ruins or sediment ruins. Trenching has also been often used for defensive purposes.

Excavation and trenching is an inherently dangerous procedure. It involves so many hazards that can be fatal at times. In-depth knowledge on trenching and excavation is a necessary requirement to embark on a successful career in engineering and construction.

The Diploma in Excavation and Trenching – Level 4 is aimed at educating aspiring constructors and engineers on excavation and trenching. The course will teach learners excavation facts, personal protection systems and excavation and trenching guidelines. Learners will gain insight into excavation and trenching hazards and excavation and confined space hazards. The course will also cover irritant (corrosive) atmosphere and soil classification. Additionally, learn about the OSHA report and how to handle an OSHA Inspection. Individuals will also learn about ladder safety, confined space safety, confined space entry program, confined space entry permit and confined space duties and responsibilities.

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Global Edulink has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
