Q

How long will it take the crane operator to become proficient with the PIR?

A

Typically, it takes half a day of collecting data for a crane operator to become familiar with the PIR user interface. For this reason, PDI recommends that one of its technicians be present on the first day of piling. The PDI technician can train the crane operator and site supervisor to use and operate the equipment. Furthermore, the PDI technician can train the inspector on how to interpret a PIR summary report.
