Snow grooming equipment is purchased through the Iowa Department of
Natural Rescourses' Snowmobile Cost-share Program. This equipment is
granted to clubs for use in developing and maintaining snowmobile trail
systems in Iowa.  

These are the steps to becoming a certified groomer operator:
  1. Apply to the program and authorize a driver's license check.  Click here
    for IDNR application.
  2. Attend a new groomer operator training.
  3. Complete a mentorship with a certified groomer.  Click here for IDNR
    training checklist.
  4. Return training checklist to program to complete certification process.
  5. Certification card is issued by program.

Anyone operating snow grooming equipment must possess a valid driver's
license and a certified groomer operator card issued by the IDNR.

All current IDNR Groomer Operators certified prior to June 2012 have to
recertify by June 2014. For more information or if your club would like to host a
groomer recertification course, contact ISSA Groomer Training Coordinator
