Recommended Background

There are no prerequisites for this course. Anyone who performs hands-on playground safety inspections and maintenance, along with those who supervise playground maintenance staff should attend the Playground Maintenance Technician training. Participants with experience ranging from just a few weeks up to 30 years, find the two-day course practical and informative.

The two-day PMT training focuses on practical playground maintenance practices, inspection principles and best practices in making repairs. Course modules explore the maintenance challenges associated with the common materials found in playgrounds, including concrete, metal, wood, plastics, fasteners and various surfacing materials.
