This course was designed to rejuvenate and expand on the snowcat safety skills learned from the Snow Operator Certification course.
The majority of this training is in the field. We focus on safety and survival techniques, specialized equipment training, and equipment repair under emergency conditions.
To remain compliant with OSHA safety retraining guidelines, it is recommended that snowcat operators take this course every two years.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive the Safety One Snowcat Operation Certification.
Please note that because of the specialized nature of our safety courses, students must bring the snow vehicles they currently use to class.
Students solidify their understanding of basic principles of snowcat operation and learn new techniques.
Additional topics may include blading.
This is a recertification course for experienced snowcat operators. Instead of retaking the Snowcat Operation Certification course, students can refresh their knowledge and techniques for snowcat operation, repair and extended survival methodologies while being re-certified.
OSHA requires that snowcat operators must be trained and certified, prior to operating a snowcat.
