New dates published for entry-level training
Grooming the perfect slope – it’s not child’s play. Impressing visitors with flawless slopes and an unforgettable ski experience comes down to different factors. The weather has to play its part and you need the right snow groomers. The people behind the controls of the vehicles are far more important, however, than the technical components: well-trained PistenBully drivers not only perform good work, but also contribute to efficient and sustainable use of the machines and the resource snow, as well as to safety on the slopes. The entry-level training offered by the PRO ACADEMY prepares new or inexperienced drivers for their first assignments.
What does entry-level training involve?
The PRO ACADEMY entry-level training provides participants with a solid grounding in the themes of drivers, vehicles and slopes. The classroom training covers the technical workings of a snow groomer, operation of the vehicle and the basics of grooming.
The course content can be tailored to the participants’ level of knowledge thanks to small class sizes, which also allows enough time for any questions.
The following content is covered:
· Safety instructions
· Snow as a medium
· Snow groomer operation
· Driving and working with a snow groomer
· Grooming a ski slope
· Special applications
· Conservation and eco-friendly working
· Maintenance for the driver
