Course Description

6 Technical NH Roads Scholar hours

Prepare your teams & equipment for winter with a full day "Snowfighters' Seminar" with UNH T2!  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!  

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

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

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.

Coffee and donuts will be available in the morning, and lunch will be provided.

Section Notes


Understanding that attendees to this session are all snowfighters, and therefore may be called into action in the event of winter weather in our region on the scheduled workshop date of Wednesday 12/13, we have proactively scheduled Friday December 15th as the "snow date" for backup purposes. Registered attendees should therefore hold both the original scheduled workshop date of 12/13 and the potential snowdate "makeup" date of 12/15, open on their calendars. UNH T2 will monitor the weather forecast for 12/13. Should inclement weather be forecasted to impact the area, we will make a determination no later than 2 pm on Tuesday December 12th to move the workshop to the backup date of Friday December 15th. All registered attendees should be sure to monitor their email address (the email address used on their student profile for registration) for any updates.
