The McHenry County Sheriff's Office will be hosting two IDNR Snowmobile Safety Certification Courses on Saturday, November 10 and Saturday, December 9, 2012 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Both courses are open to children 12 years of age and older and for those who do not have a valid driver's license. Those who do not have a valid driver's license need to have this certificate to legally operate a snowmobile in the State of Illinois.
Those who possess a valid driver's license may also attend to expand their knowledge of snowmobile safety.
The IDNR Snowmobile Safety Certification Course covers maintenance and repair of snowmobiles, proper and safe operation, history of snowmobiling, first aid, protection of the environment, and the state laws.
Persons completing the minimum eight hours of instruction and successfully completing the final examination will receive a State of Illinois Certificate of Competency and a graduate patch.
The course will take place at the McHenry County Government Center, 2200 N Seminary Ave Woodstock, in the McHenry County Sheriff's Office Training Division.
To pre-register, contact Cathy Hardt at 815-334-4739 or email@example.com. Class size is limited to 30 students and pre-registration is required.
