12-04: Snowplow Operator and Supervisor Training

Problem

Every state provides some training for snowplow operators and supervisors. However, each training program has its own strengths and focus areas. Clear Roads has identified the best and most extensive training materials from all its member states and partners, but needs help organizing these materials into classroom courses that could be utilized by any Clear Roads state.

Objective

The purpose of this project was to develop a series of flexible training modules for snowplow operators and supervisors that could be used, modified, and updated by any of the Clear Roads member agencies to serve as partial-day or multiple-day classroom-style training courses.

Results

The key outcomes of the project are presentations, course guides, exams and other training support materials for the 22 topics identified by the project subcommittee. For details, see the List of Modules and Descriptions under Final Products on the right side of this page.

Clear Roads is making the training materials available free of charge to any agency, including local and county highway departments. For access, contact Clear Roads Administrator Greg Waidley at 608-490-0552 or greg.waidley@ctcandassociates.com.
