Arena Level 1 & Ice Maintenance Combined Course

This course is offered in partnership with the Alberta Association of Recreation Facility Personnel (AARFP). Arena Level 1, combined with the Ice Maintenance course, is ideal for the frontline, grassroots arena operator looking to upgrade their skills in ice facility operations.

The combination of these two courses will have participants participate in both classroom instruction and practical sessions and do a full two-day install, including making ice, marking lines, painting, logos and maintenance of artificial ice surfaces.
