Operations Train-the-Trainer for ropeway and conveyor operations personnel
For a number of years, the regulatory authority for passenger ropeways for the Province of British Columbia has encouraged the development of formal passenger ropeway and passenger conveyor operator training programs at ski areas. The need for standardized training for ski lift operators was originally recommended by the coroner’s report on the 1995 Quicksilver chair lift accident.
This course was developed in conjunction with the Canada West Ski Area Association and Technical Safety BC, by the Ski Resort Operations and Management Program at Selkirk College. LIFT 150 is the first step in developing an integrated, standardized training program for ski industry operating and maintenance personnel.

LIFT 150: Ski Lift Operations Train-the-Trainer is designed to help you, the ski lift supervisor or manager, develop a comprehensive program for training ski lift operators. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
1. explain the need for ski lift safety and the steps required to achieve it,
2. identify and explain regulations governing ski lifts that relate to lift operator training, and
3. deliver a ski lift operator’s training session.
Completion of the course and the course exam is one of two steps required to qualify course participants for certification by Technical Safety BC as passenger ropeway trainers. Technical Safety BC issues passenger ropeway trainer certificates and these certificates name the lift types for which the certificate holder may provide training.
Course Duration: Three weeks from date of registration to complete all aspects of the course.
