Playground Maintenance Course 

The PMC is a one-day (6.25 hour) educational course that covers fundamental information required to spot the most common playground hazards found with equipment, surfacing and surrounding playspaces. The course also covers playground safety standards and guidelines, playground owner responsibilities and maintenance discussions on playground equipment, surfacing and site items.
