Ice Safety Courses

For emergency first responders, industry and occupation workers, or individuals spending time on the ice (fishing, sledding, etc).

Ice Safety Training

In these courses, you’ll learn about the formation of ice and how to assess the risks and hazards. You’ll also learn about traveling on the ice and what to do if you or someone else has fallen through.

Courses vary depending on ice environments, tasks, and responsibilities.

All courses have the same core fundamentals of hazard assessment and personal safety. The courses are also designed specifically for the “zone” and risk you operate in.

From the Cold zone (away from the ice edge) and low risk or static ice to the Hot Zone (actively operating/rescuing or working on/in the ice) and high risk or dynamic ice.

If you send workers into the ice environment or you yourself have a responsibility to respond to the ice there is a course for you.
