Playground Maintenance Training   

Training Content

The Playground Maintenance Program focuses on practical maintenance practices, inspection principles and best practices in making repairs. This program does not focus on play theory or memorizing standards. Course modules explore the maintenance challenges associated with the common materials found in playgrounds, including concrete, metal, wood, plastics, fasteners and various surfacing materials. Through videos and case studies, you learn about the types of playground inspections, how to repair damaged equipment and associated legal considerations. A virtual playground offers you the opportunity to apply your newly learned skills. This is a certificate of completion program not a certification. Continuing education modules to address new playground-maintenance issues, along with refresher segments, will be available on the Clemson University website.
