Winter Maintenance Supervisor Certificate

The Winter Maintenance Supervisor Certificate is for supervisors and managers to:

  • Expand knowledge of planning and preparation
  • Increase understanding of winter weather and how it affects operations
  • Identify how to better use traditional and alternative chemicals
  • Consider what equipment is available and how to maintain it
  • Expand understanding of snow & ice control techniques
  • Appreciate the environmental impacts of winter maintenance policies
  • Stress responsible application

Resulting in more effective, efficient, equitable and environmentally-friendly snow and ice control.

It is typically an all-day workshop with testing throughout the day.  Attendees receive a Certificate of Completion upon achieving a score or 80% or above. This is a fantastic training opportunity for new supervisors, senior operators or anyone wanting a good overall understanding of winter maintenance operations and a great way to start the conference.

Who should attend?

  • Supervisors with winter maintenance responsibilities
  • Operators who aspire to be supervisors
  • Operators who want a greater understanding of winter maintenance processes
