NHDES Salt Applicator Certification

Individuals who have attended the Green SnowPro Training and have passed the exam are eligible to apply for the voluntary NHDES Salt Applicator Certification per RSA 489-C and Code of Administrative Rules, amended  and  adopted effective June 1, 2018 Env-Wq 2200.  To obtain your certification from NHDES and obtain liability protection for you and your clients from slip and falls you must take the Green SnowPro Training workshop and pass the exam.

 

Recertification Policy:
  • To recertify, you must annually apply to NHDES Click for Application Form (certification expires every June).
  • Annually you must log your total salt usage into the FREE Salt Management System.
  • To ensure maximum liability protection also keep track of your activities for each storm event including each site visit, target application rates, weather conditions, and use of recommended best practices. You may use the free salt accounting system to track these records.
  • Every 2 years you must attend at least 2 hours of Professional Development Courses. Currently T2 offers a 2 hour refresher course and a 5 hour course on Salt Brine, which counts towards the Applicator Certificate. 

Important Notice to Municipalities Regarding Green SnowPro Training and Salt Applicator Certification:

The State of New Hampshire does not have authority to certify municipal salt applicators per the current statute wording (see Statute 489--Salt Applicator Certification Option C:1 Definitions) where as "Commercial applicator" means any individual who applies or supervises others who apply salt, but shall not include municipal or state employees.   Although NH is unable to issue certificates to municipal employees at this time, the NH Department of Environmental Services (DES) is working on new legislation that would incorporate a voluntary program to include municipal employees. Meanwhile, municipalities are encouraged to actively participate in training opportunities such as Green SnowPro through UNH T2, in order to employ best management practices in snow and ice management in their communities. 

Green SnowPro classes do qualify for Roads Scholar credits with UNH T2.
