Snow and Ice Management Assn. to Unveil New Certification Test
The Snow and Ice Management Association (SIMA) announced that it will unveil its new Certified Snow Professional test on April 20, 2007.
The test has been completely overhauled to match a newly written study guide for the program.
SIMA plans to grow the program in the next year by offering more test dates and consolidating study materials into the study guide. The first new test will be offered in conjunction with a training seminar coordinated by SIMA in Cherry Hill, NJ, in April.
“Becoming a CSP is about more than just plowing snow,” said Julie Seggi, training coordinator at SIMA. “It’s about running a professional, safe, and successful snow removal service. CSPs take pride in the work that they do.”
The benefits of becoming a CSP include added recognition, marketing value, and increased knowledge of best practices and risk management. Preparation for the test includes meeting eligibility requirements and studying for the exam using the study guide created specifically for the CSP program by SIMA.
SIMA is a nonprofit trade organization dedicated to ensuring professionalism and safer communities by helping those who manage snow and ice master essential skills and practices.
