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 had identified the best and most extensive training materials from its member states and partners, and undertook this research project to organize these materials into classroom courses that can 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 Clear Roads member agency 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. Please complete the request form to access the materials.
