Winter Maintenance Operator Certificate

The Winter Maintenance Operator Certificate is for those “behind the wheel” during winter maintenance events. This workshop is designed to:

  • Provide a basic understanding of winter operations
  • Increase operator understanding of winter materials and how they work
  • Provide an overview of winter equipment and its upkeep
  • Encourage enhanced communication between fleet personnel and operators
  • Discuss winter operations for operators
Resulting in more effective, efficient, equitable and environmentally-friendly snow and ice control. It is typically a four-hour workshop. There is no content testing for this program; participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program as long as they have been present throughout the entire workshop. This is a fantastic training opportunity for new and experienced operators, supplemental operators from other departments, and contract operators, to ensure a strong overall understanding of winter maintenance operations.

Who should attend?

  • New and experienced operators
  • Supplemental operators from other departments
  • Contract operators
  • Operators who want a greater understanding of winter maintenance operations
