The APWA Winter Maintenance Supervisor Certificate Workshop provides a well-rounded overview of all aspects of snow and ice control for individuals charged with supervising their winter maintenance operations.
The goals is for participants to
  • Expand their knowledge of planning and preparation,
  • Increase their 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
  • Stress responsible application of materials
  • Resulting in increased appreciation of  the environmental impacts of winter maintenance policies
 Topics include:
  • Policy and Planning
  •  Weather Basics
  •  Material selection, handling and storage
  • Equipment & Fleet
  • Snow Control
  •  Ice Control
  • All with a focus on Sustainability and lessening the impact of winter maintenance practices on the environment.

Attendees will be tested after each topic session to assess their retention of the materials and provide their agencies with peace of mind that they have a solid grasp on winter maintenance practices.  An overall score of 80% is required to earn the certificate. 
 
Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of their agency’s winter maintenance plan with them.
 
This workshop provides a great baseline to Winter Maintenance Supervision and is a great way to identify topics for further investigation throughout the Snow Conference.
