Resource and Industry

Ice

We provide one level of training regardless of whether you work over flat water (frozen lakes and ponds), or over moving water (frozen creeks and rivers) because the baseline skills and knowledge are the same for both.

However, ice over moving water increases the risk exponentially and we recommend that personnel working on frozen creeks or rivers also take swiftwater rescue training.

The standard-of-care for those working in this high risk environment is a minimum of 16 hours of training that combines theoretical and practical knowledge.

TESTIMONIALS

Natasha Eastman
Fisheries Technician

AMAZING course. The surface ice safety training was the best course I have ever taken. I liked that there was some simple first aid and hypothermia components included in the course. The instructor, Frank, was awesome. He was easy to talk to, answered questions quickly but didn’t assume answers. He got back to us regarding a question asked that he had to research the answer for. Frank used the time well, and was adaptive to the class needs and skill levels. The course helped me get over my fear of ice/falling through, especially since I gained the nerve to do a polar dip afterwards. It helped me understand the formation and melting pattern of ice and ice weaknesses. The equipment used was simple and easy. The textbook and field guide are great references, and the field guide is simple and easy to understand and read. Overall 10/10 for the course and instructor.
