Registering for the Course
QUAD NB certified instructors normally offer Quad safety courses until the first snowfall. Once you have registered, an instructor will be assigned to you. They will then contact you to schedule a date for the course. During this call, the instructor will inform you of the relevant details for the class, i.e.: schedule, location of the training site, and more.
Courses are normally held on the weekends (Saturday and/or Sunday) and take approximately half a day or four hours to complete. We recommend bringing a lunch, lots to drink and all Quad safety gear required.
