During the practical cat and genny training session delegates will operate the cat and genny in passive and active modes they will also use a genny in induction and connection mode all to EUSR standards.

Cable location training means delegates will.

Operate the cat in power mode

Operate the cat in radio mode

Use genny 4 in induction mode

Use the genny 4 in connection mode

Use a sonde and Cobra reel (if requested)
