Advanced Operation & Safety Course for Experienced Recertification Snowcat Operators
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 keep in compliance 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 Certification and will be able to:
Students solidify their understanding of basic principles of snowcat operation while incorporating more advanced techniques such as night driving and mission based rescue skills into their driver’s knowledge.
These may include night and low visibility tactics, field repair, navigation skills, mission based rescue and advanced extrication drills. Additional topics may include blading, thermal imaging and night vision systems, snowcat specific avalanche training, extreme terrain conditions, extended survival, emergency methodologies and overall OSHA compliance issues.
This is a recertification course for experienced snowcat operators. Instead of retaking the Snowcat Operation Certification course, students can learn advanced knowledge and techniques for snowcat operation, repair and extended survival methodologies while being re-certified.
