Grady Bell leads an educational session.

Keeping up to date with the latest technology and construction techniques to boost productivity is more important than ever in today’s marketplace.

Underground Construction Technology, producers of the annual UCT International Conference & Exposition, has again partnered with ICUEE (International Construction and Utility Equipment Exhibition) to offer a special co-located education program and two special, pre-show programs. UCT is the industry’s leading educational source for all aspects of underground construction and rehabilitation. The event is scheduled for Oct. 4-6, at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, KY.

“The goal of all our education programs is to help ensure that industry professionals have the information they need to meet today’s operational challenges. Our participation at ICUEE is another opportunity to extend that value and better serve the industry,” stated UCT Program Director Robert Carpenter.

“ICUEE is well-known for its outside equipment demonstrations and UCT is the industry benchmark for education – we believe it makes for a great partnership,” Carpenter added.

In addition to its 10 sessions during the regular program, UCT will host two special pre-show events on Monday, Oct. 3.

HDD Workshop: Selecting What’s Right For Your Project is an advanced horizontal directional drilling school that will provide valuable tips and insights into the application and efficient operations of HDD projects. The presentation is structured to benefit contractors of all skill levels plus provide an essential knowledge base for engineers and owners. The program runs from 8 a.m. -- 5 p.m.

The second pre-show event is a Utilities Locator Certification Seminar conducted by Staking University. It will run from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Combining classroom and hands-on instruction, the Locator Certification Seminar focuses on the underlying principles of utility locating, as well as the importance of performing accurate locates.

All attendees to both the pre-show workshop/seminar and regular program will be eligible to receive CEUs or PDHs as part of their registration fee.
