How to Use This Manual

This manual has been organized and written in chapter and summary format. Each chapter deals with certain topics that are reviewed in a summary at the end of the chapter.

The manual is divided into two parts:  Part 1 - for aircrew and groundcrew; Part 2 - additional information for ground crew. The final chapter contains questions that any operator may utilize for their ground icing program examination. The references for each question are listed to assist with answers. The Holdover Tables (HOT) included in the appendix are solely for the use with the examination questions and must not be used for operations. Contact Transport Canada from the addresses located later in this document for the latest HOT.
