Lake Service Provider Permit and Certification

Decontamination Training for Lake Service Provider Businesses

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources offers hot-water, high-pressure decontamination trainings to interested lake service provider businesses.

  • Attendees learn proper methods in decontaminating equipment and receive hands-on practice decontaminating boats using DNR hot-water/high-pressure decontamination units.
  • Businesses that complete the training are marked on the list of permitted lake service providers.
  • Due to the hands-on nature, intensive equipment and staffing required for this type of class, trainings have limited availably during the open-water season and require pre-registration.
  • When classes are posted, registration will be accepted on a first-come first served basis.
  • Trainings will be cancelled if minimum class size is not reached.
