Event Description

Salt Certification Registration is now open for fall of 2019. Six trainings will be offered. The certification program is open to all contractors in Dane County. The City encourages anyone who professionally applies salt to earn certification. The City also encourages residents to choose salt certified applicators. The Madison Salt Certification Program was developed in 2017. More than 300 certified applicators have been trained in Dane County since the voluntary program was started. The program is housed in City of Madison Engineering Division, but it is supported in collaboration with Wisconsin SaltWise . This program encourages winter maintenance professionals to use the least amount of de-icing material necessary to keep parking lots, roads, sidewalks and driveways safe. This training will provide knowledge to pass the Salt Certification Exam and have you listed as a certified salt applicator. The training will focus on parking lots, sidewalks and trails. It will cover pre-storm preparation, equipment calibration guidance, application rates, de-icer selection and more. The goal of the training is to educate winter maintenance professionals on how to use the least amount of de-icing materials necessary to keep pavements safe throughout the winter. Coffee, bagels, and lunch will be included with the registration fee of $12.00. Registration will be capped at 55 people for this training session.
