    Liquids are us will be holding training sessions on the use of liquids and how they can help with your overall snow plan for this upcoming winter season. With the cost of salt and the uncertainty of salt supplies it is time for every snow plow professional to take a good look at liquids.
    We are excited to be having Dale Keep from Snow & Ice Technologies as our key note speaker. Dale is a nationally known consultant on the use of liquids for snow and ice management. If you have never heard dale speak it will be well worth your time to attend this training.
    The training will take place nov 10th & 11th in the cleveland area. We will be having 3 trainings the first day, 1 training session the second day, with a round table discussion that evening, each session will be about 2 hours long. All training sessions will be the same.
    Tentative schedule day 1 8:30-10:30am 2:00-4:00pm 6:30-8:30pm
    Tentative schedule day2 9:00-11:00am Roundtable discussion 6:30-8:30pm
    Call today to reserve a time slot 330-715-7411 or 330-715-7405 or 330-297-0006

    This all sounds good, but will there any hands on training. Im the type of guy who needs to get into a piece of equipment to see for myself. Not much into sitting all day and listen to someone sell me something. I need levers and switchs to play with.

    Regards Mike

    liquid de-icing

    Liquids are us is a distibutor of michigan chloride sales. We are offering this training for free for the following reasons.
    1). We are also a snow and ice mgmt. company that like allot of us , are paying allot more for salt this year, and also not sure about this years salt supplies as well as next years. We have spent countless hours looking into liquids and have been told many so called facts about liquids that simply were not true or way overstated. We hired Dale Keep to consult with us to help us better understand liquids and how they work. During our search for an affordable and effective liquid, michigan chlorides product when compared to other products on market kept coming up the best for us in both cost and preformance.

    2). We are trying to work with people that are in the same situation as we were untill we began to better understand liquids. Yes it is true that we are selling them , but if you attend the training you will not be forced to buy any. You can make your own decission on what product you buy . We would like for you to take a look at Michigan Chlorides product that is all.IF YOU DONOT ATTEND YOU WILL MISS THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR .DALES KNOWLEDGE ABOUT LIQUIDS. Thank you for your concern

    liquid de-cing training

    The dates that we have chosen are the only dates that Dale had available for the month of november and fisrt part of december. We scheduled the evening training sessions because we understand everyone is busy working during the day.
    There is no hands on training during this training session. Dale will be giving a presentation on allot of good info about liquids in general. You will also be able to ask questions.
    THANKS FOR THE QUESTION
