Course Description

Prepare your teams & equipment for winter with a full day "Snowfighters' Seminar" with UNH T2 and partners and friends!  We'll review best practices & innovations in winter operations including equipment and anti-icing & de-icing options. and a hands-on equipment calibration.  Discussion will include how salt works - and how it doesn't work - brine, liquids, and pre-treat & pre-wet options, as well as determining application rates from awareness of pavement and air temperature, weather forecast, and other variables.  We''ll also discuss winter safety, pre-season and pre and post-trip inspection, as well as driver wellness and defensive & safe driving. 

Please dress appropriately for a portion of this workshop to be held outdoors.  We'd also like to do hands-on calibration, so if your team wishes to bring your equipment to the workshop for this hands-on calibration activity, feel free!  

There will be about an hour of prework associated with this class, consisting of a variety of winter operations training video clips to support our in-classroom time.  This prework will be sent out about a week before the workshop to all attendees, and attendees will receive an additional 1 Safety Roads Scholar hour for completing the prework.  This is in addition to 6.5 Technical hours for attending the full-day in-person workshop.

**NEW in 2022!  Snowfighters' Seminar is an approved NHDES Green SnowPro Salt Applicator Certification Initial Training!**

NH Salt Applicator certified individuals- this is a Green SnowPro approved initial training workshop! 

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO MUNICIPALITIES REGARDING GREEN SNOWPRO TRAINING AND SALT APPLICATOR CERTIFICATION
The State of New Hampshire does not have authority to certify municipal salt applicators per the current statute wording (see Statute 489--Salt Applicator Certification Option C:1 Definitions) where as "Commercial applicator" means any individual who applies or supervises others who apply salt, but shall not include municipal or state employees. Although NH is unable to issue certificates to municipal employees at this time, the NH Department of Environmental Services (DES) is working on new legislation that would incorporate a voluntary program to include municipal employees. Meanwhile, municipalities are encouraged to actively participate in training opportunities such as Green SnowPro through UNH T2, in order to employ best management practices in snow and ice management in their communities.

Green SnowPro classes do qualify for Roads Scholar credits with UNH T2.
