January 13-19, 2013 marks International Snowmobile Safety Week, which is dedicated to promoting snowmobile safety education and enforcement. At snowmobile-ed.com, putting safety conscious riders on the trail is top priority. The snowmobile safety courses at snowmobile-ed.com allow students to receive their snowmobile license or safety certification online. Plus, the state-approved training covers the same material taught in the classroom.
“We’ve worked with state agencies responsible for snowmobile safety training to develop approved online snowmobiling safety courses,” said Kurt Kalkomey, president of Kalkomey Enterprises, Inc. “By taking an online course, 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, 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 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
Snowmobiling can be a fun, healthy recreational pastime that can introduce people to beautiful areas they might otherwise never see. To get started, students should visit snowmobile-ed.com and choose their state. After passing the test, students should print out their temporary snowmobile safety certificate before getting out there to enjoy the snow.
