If you are planning on attending one of our scheduled workshops this spring you may see the word Waitlist on several workshops when you download the form. To us here at the Cornell Local Roads Program, seeing the word waitlist makes us both happy and sad.

We like seeing the word waitlist because it means the workshops are full and popular. But this also means you may be locked out of a workshop you wanted to attend and we don't want that. If you find that the workshop you were hoping to attend is full, you can still request workshops from CLRP that can be held outside of our regular training schedule. Currently, we already have scheduled a dozen requested workshops but remember, just like with our scheduled workshops, requested workshops are a limited resource.

Sign up or request a workshop today!

New Law Change in Effect for 2019 Requires Training

Excavators that work for a local government and their hired contractors, as well as excavators that work for an operator and their hired contractors, will be required to receive training and education as regulated by the NYS Public Service Commission.

Those working on municipal contracts have 180 days, until Saturday, May 4, 2019, to fulfill the new requirement.

Dig Safely, New York’s Certified Excavator Program in Safe Digging Best Practices qualifies as an educational opportunity that fulfills the requirements of the amendment to the law. To assist those impacted excavators, Dig Safely New York has increased its number of open registration Certified Excavator Program classes. All classes and events can be viewed and respectively registered by visiting www.DigSafelyNewYork.com/Events.
