With support from WisDOT and the DNR, the City of Madison, the Fox-Wolf Watershed Alliance, Milwaukee Riverkeepers, Rain to Rivers, Root-Pike WIN, and Waukesha County host trainings across the state.
This 4-hour workshop consistently impresses public and private winter maintenance professionals with industry-leading guidance on how to calculate and apply the precise amount of de-icing material necessary to keep parking lots, roads, sidewalks and driveways safe. Resources mentioned during the certification training are available on our website as a reference for workshop participants. All classes are led by Fortin Consulting.
Quotes from past participants:
"The class was very good. I learned more than I expected considering my 30+ years in snow removal. Nice job to all involved. I wish this was a mandatory class for all commercial operators and municipalities. Thank you!"
"The collaboration and sharing of information between the attendees was a great tool . . . to hear what other people are doing, what is working for them, and what isn't is incredibly valuable. Also, the guest contractor was a great addition."
"Great class and I will be having my employees take the class as well."
