The City of Winnipeg Streets Maintenance Division and the Heavy Equipment & Aggregate Truckers Association of Manitoba Inc. have partnered in the creation of an online orientation called the CITY OF WINNIPEG BEST PRACTICES FOR SNOW REMOVAL. The aim of the online orientation is to provide operators hired by the City on an hourly basis for street and back lane snow removal with the most current methods and best practices to snow clear streets and back lanes on City right-of-way.
City senior operational staff in collaboration with industry representatives established a detailed, informative, yet basic online orientation to assist operators to understand what practices and methods to use when snow clearing a variety of features found on streets and back lanes.
The online orientation uses narration along with visual animation to assist operators to understand the various situations that they may come across when snow clearing and which practice to use in order to provide consistent work with minimal damage to City and private property.
All operators working on an hourly basis for the City of Winnipeg are required to complete this orientation which takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. The online orientation should be completed by an operator prior to reporting for work with the City on a hired hourly basis for snow clearing work. Successful participants will receive a course certificate that they can print or show electronically when reporting for work.
Questions regarding the orientation can be directed to email@example.com

How it Works
The H.E.A.T. Learning Portal provides access to the City of Winnipeg Best Practices for Snow Removal course for individual equipment operators. Please note that this orientation is only a requirement for loader, grader and plow truck operators. Operators of all other pieces of equipment are not required to complete training at this time.
Operators can register, purchase and complete the course using this portal. Once they complete their course, operators can also use the portal to access, print and save their official certificate to their personal devices or to show others their proof of certification.
The H.E.A.T. Learning Portal also serves companies wishing to purchase courses on behalf of their employees. Companies can buy in bulk and invite employees to complete pre-paid courses. Companies can also use their group portal to review the status of each of their invited operators, add more courses and invite more operators. Group portals are created automatically when a company completes a bulk purchase.
The H.E.A.T. Learning Portal also provides access to member benefits. H.E.A.T. members are eligible for the reduced member rate for course purchases. Please contact the H.E.A.T. office for more information.
