This course is NOT the standard Arena Operator Level #1 Course. Instead, this course will focus on best ice maintenance practices used during the winter season. The morning will be a discussion on general ice maintenance practices along with a class conversation about current and best practices. The afternoon will be focused on actual ice maintenance.

Topics covered along with class participation include:

  • Principles of Ice Maintenance
  • Air Quality
  • Dasher Board Systems
  • Best Practices
  • Ice Maintenance Equipment Operation

Primary Audience: Facility Operators and supervisors who require a better understanding of ice maintenance, science of ice making and industry best practices.

Mode of Training: The course is designed to provide a balance of classroom instruction and practical.

Course Materials: Registrants will receive information pertaining to ice maintenance.

Health & Safety Equipment: Proper steel toe footwear, ice cleats and clothing is required as we will be on the ice surface for extended periods performing tasks related to ice installation/maintenance.

COVID-19 Health and Safety Statement: SPRA reminds all participants that personal safety is a required individual commitment that will help protect other participants, the facilitator/instructor, and the host site.
