We created a number of different modules that can be customized to make unique Snowcat Operation courses.
Each module can be incorporated into a custom class with corresponding custom certification upon student completion.
Custom courses can be held onsite at customer location.
Please note that because of the specialized nature of our safety courses, students must bring the snow vehicles they currently use to class.
Winter Survival – Environmental Factors
Classroom training for workers exposed to harsh winter conditions in remote areas. Learn essential skills pertaining to hypothermia, frostbite and recommended PPE. Survival attitude training including shelter basics & fire starting.
Winter Survival – Field Study

Mechanical and technical instruction pertaining to vehicle operations. Covering Track on and track off, critical vehicle inspection and field repairs.
Driving instruction designed for operators of snowcats and tracked vehicles and meeting OSHA requirements. Includes safety and survival techniques, specialized equipment training and equipment repair under emergency conditions.
Advanced Snowcat Operations
Students solidify their understanding of basic principles of snowcat operation while incorporating more advanced techniques such as night driving, difficult terrain and mission based rescue skills into their driver’s knowledge.
Instruction covering blade functions and limitations on transport snowcats. This does not include groomers. Field lessons would cover blade inspection, snow surface recognition, blade controls, blade engagement and best practices for improvement of the snow surface for travel.
Instruction for those employees who may face avalanche situations. Hands-on threat assessments, avalanche prediction, and rescue techniques are taught specific to snow vehicle operation. Optional classroom and/or field training.
“We had a number of unique challenges at our site and with the equipment that we had and the terrain we deal with. Safety One was able to assist in keeping our operation going safely year-round and this was huge for us. Those guys really went the extra mile to help us out.”
