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."
