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.

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.
