Snowmobile Safety Training

Whether a snowmobile is used for work or recreational purposes, safe-riding practices should be followed.
The Snowmobile Operator's and Instructor courses are nationally recognized programs developed by the Canada Safety Council, for the benefit of both industrial and recreational snowmobile operators.

Completion of a Snowmobile Operator's course has become mandatory on many job sites for employees and sub-contracted personnel. In addition to our scheduled courses, the ASC offers custom corporate training - we can bring our course to your facility.

All students must provide their own mechanically sound snowmobile and appropriate riding gear, regardless of whether the training is at our facility or yours.
