Smart Salting, Level 2 (organization) Certification Training: Twin Cities

Level 2 Smart Salting is a free 4 hour computer based class for winter maintenance leadership: public works managers, supervisors, business owners, and other lead staff.

Learn how to use a new, web-based Smart Salting Assessment tool (SSAt) and begin steps for your organization to become Level 2 MPCA certified. This will be the second class where we are show casing the new SSAt (Smart Salting Assessment tool). This is an expanded tool created from our original WMAt (Winter Maintenance Assessment tool).

Using the SSAt, review your organizations past, present, and future winter maintenance practices. The tool will help your organization reduce salt use and apply salt efficiently. Learn to use the tool to create a series of reports for internal training, budgeting, and communicating with officials who fund maintenance work. Tool outputs are based on your organization’s current and future practices.

Lunch will be provided at 12:00 pm, prior to the training starting at 12:15 pm.

At the end of training, you will be prepared to submit your Minnesota Pollution Control Agency Smart Salting Level 2 Certification.
