Snowmobile Safety and Maintenance

Students in first year were getting their first shot at the Snowmobile Safety and Maintenance course held at the college recently. The students were out on a great Friday afternoon in above average temperatures, applying their classroom lessons in operation and safety.

The operation part of the course is taught on the UNB woodlot adjacent to the college. Some of the skills and lessons on this day included emergency braking, proper handling / sitting positions while operating the snowmobile, control up and down slopes to name a few.

 All students are able to take the Snowmobile course if they choose. Students in the Advanced Diploma program are required to have the course in order to meet all requirements before graduation.
