This year’s program for the CWSAA Operations and Maintenance Seminar in Whistler April 25th-27th, 2016 will again feature the three Ski Resort Passenger Ropeway Mechanic courses. These courses are open to all CWSAA
member resorts; in British Columbia these courses are a requirement for lift mechanic licensing as specified by the BC Safety Authority. Each of the three courses will include a tutorial on ski lift components and the applicable code requirements, followed by a one-hour, two-part exam involving ski lift components and the applicable Z98 Code requirements.
Note: These courses assume that participants have a level of understanding relative to experienced ski lift mechanics, therefore knowledge of the Z98-07 Code and knowledge of lift mechanics and maintenance equivalent to the contents of the Selkirk College text Ski Lift Functions, Maintenance and Regulations and the companion Learning Guide will be required. You can purchase the textbook through the Selkirk College Bookstore.
