Q

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

A

Typically it takes about a half day of actively collecting data during the installation of piles for the crane operator to become familiar with the user interface of the PIR. PDI recommends that a PDI technician be present on the first day of piling to train the crane operator and site supervisor on the use and operation of the equipment. PDI also recommends that its technician be present on the first day of piling to train the inspector on the interpretation of the PIR summary report.
