Corporate Snowmobile Safety Training
Do you or others in your employ use snowmobiles while on the job? Regardless of how often they use an snowmobiles to access their work site, and regardless of how remote they travel, we have the best safety record in the industry, as well as some of the best training available in the United States . Even if your employees have ridden for years, if they have never enrolled in and successfully completed training for their specific job applications, then they are most likely at risk. We can help you reduce these liability concerns.
Choose from our snowmobile training programs and safety courses for corporate employees, government agencies, law enforcement, military, special ops teams and the general public. Our snowmobile safety training can be designed specifically for your safety applications, for any duration or location you desire, to ensure that you and your team acquire the knowledge and skill sets required of your unique work or recreational applications.

Snowmobile certification is also available for all skill levels, if desired. You can register for one of our advertised snowmobile courses, or design your own. Participate in our safety seminars and hands-on training (indoor and field). Private snowmobile training programs and safety instruction are available (group or individual). We can also assist you with recommendations for snowmobile purchases, sales and rentals. Riding techniques are taught for snowmobiles by Polaris, SkiDoo, Arctic Cat, Yamaha, and other brands.

There is no wasted time in our programs, as we run simultaneous training, round-robin style, should we need to. If you do not have one vehicle per person for the training, this format works well. We simply ask you to consider other training your employees may need, in addition to snowmobile instruction, that could take place at the same time as the snowmobile training. This may include: 4x4 truck driving training, ATV safety training, snowcat training, helicopter safety training, survival training, map and compass training, and GPS training, among other critical safety skills.
