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:
Groomer operators 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 re-certification date is included on the card issued to the operator from the program.
There is no fee for the initial certification training or the re-certification training.
