Snowmobile enthusiasts who plan to introduce someone to snowmobiling during “Take a Friend Snowmobiling Week,” should encourage new riders to take an official safety course. Students can receive their snowmobile license or safety certification at snowmobile-ed.com in plenty of time to take part in the Feb. 9-18 campaign.
“We’ve worked with state agencies responsible for snowmobile education to develop approved online snowmobiling safety courses,” said Kurt Kalkomey, president of Kalkomey Enterprises, Inc. “By taking an online course at snowmobile-ed.com, students receive a high-quality education while learning at their own pace.”
Students who must receive their certification to operate a snowmobile pay a one-time fee at snowmobile-ed.com, which is due only if they pass the test. Students can take the test as many times as they need to pass it. Plus, the courses at snowmobile-ed.com are mobile friendly, the pages automatically resize according to the device being used, no app required. This means students can complete the entire course on their smartphone, tablet or laptop.
The course at snowmobile-ed.com features interactive animations and illustrations that make it fun and easy to learn how to enjoy snowmobiling while staying safe. Students taking the course will learn how to:
- Maintain, operate and store their snowmobiles
- Dress for the weather
- Determine what protective gear is needed
- Safely ride a snowmobile in a variety of situations
- Deal with unexpected conditions
- Follow state laws
“Take a Friend Snowmobiling Week,” is held to encourage those in the snowmobile community to invite friends and family members to give snowmobiling a try. Snowmobiles are a fun way for people to enjoy winter and visit beautiful areas they might otherwise never see. To learn more about “Take a Friend Snowmobiling Week,” visit www.gosnowmobiling.org.
