Canadian Utility Locators Level Up with PointMan Software: Now Critical Part of LMI Certification Program

The flagship product of ProStar, called PointMan, has now become part of the LMI (Locate Management Institute) of Canada Certification Program for Professional Utility Locators.

LMI of Canada is internationally recognized for its education, training, and assessments. It has adopted the specific mobile mapping software by ProStar as part of the training curriculum for underground locators. PoinMan will assist in decreasing the amount of damages and injuries when dealing with underground utilities.

LMI is the only training provider in Canada who provides the Canadian Certified Locator program. Each year, 1000 students get educated and trained in the program which includes the best practices in underground locating. LMI is licensed by DBYD Certification Limited (DCL)

It makes sense LMI would approach ProStar for their PointMan product. ProStar is a state-of-the-art precision mapping solutions world leader, creating digital worlds using the most current cloud, GPS, and mobile mapping technologies. PointMan is designed to improve both workflow process and business practices dealing with underground, and above ground, infrastructure.

LMI does curriculums, in-person locating training, and online training. The organization has reference manuals that cover proper and safe digging techniques, locating fundamentals, and advanced locating techniques, as well as independent locator assessments. LMI has courses in Canada, United States, Australia, and New Zealand.
