Information / Records Requests
Snow grooming equipment is purchased through the Department's Snowmobile Cost-share Program. This equipment is granted to clubs for use in developing and maintaining snowmobile trail systems in Iowa. These are the steps to becoming a certified groomer operator:
Groomers must attend a workshop once every three years (effective 7/7/2010) to maintain their status as certified. This training will focus on a greater understanding of trail development, equipment upkeep, and any changes or enhancements to the program which have taken place. The recertification date is included on the card issued to the operator from the program.
There is no fee for the initial certification training or the recertification training.
