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.
