Electrical inspection question

Easy question. I hae a 70' run of conduit in a 18" deep trench. Will the inspector want to see the entire run or can I start to bury it it. Leaving the ends and a few sections in the middle uncovered.

TIA

There is absolutely no set answer.
With a homeowner installation..... I'd recommend leaving the entire trench open.

As said, best to leave it open. Also NEC calls for 18" of cover, so that's from the top of the conduit, not from the bottom of the trench.
