The CD Based youth snowmobile safety training class is an introductory class designed primarily for the snowmobile rider with little to no experience in snowmobile operation.

Students obtain and study the safety information on the interactive CD at their own pace in the comfort of their own home under the guidance of a parent or guardian. Depending on the youth’s age and experience, the CD should take approximately 2-4 hours to complete.

The one day class includes classroom review of priority safety information and a performance driving course.
