ATV Training

All Terrain Vehicles are extremely useful to use for field research, but University personnel must be properly trained on the safe operation of the unit befor­e going out in the field.

There are several places University personnel can go to obtain ATV training.

Fleet Safety at the Univeristy offers ATV training on request. Contact Kenji Kinoshita, Fleet Safety Officer for more information. kenji.kinoshita@ualberta.ca or phone 780-492-1233.

If your group will be renting or using ATV’s in the field you can provide training for your field personnel by sending them to the Alberta Safety Council to take their ATV rider course. They offer both an instructor level course or a rider course.  Go to their website of see when they are offering courses and enroll early to ensure that you can access a course that fits your schedule.
