SIMA Launches Canadian Version of
Certified Snow Professional Program


The Snow & Ice Management Association (SIMA) is pleased to announce the launch of a Canadian version of the Certified Snow Professional (CSP) program. The CSP exam and study modules, which cover six different subjects pertaining to snow & ice management and business, have been revised to reflect differences between U.S. and Canadian laws and business practices.

The revisions include changes regarding business law, sub-contractors, and measurements, making the CSP much more pertinent to Canadian applicants. The testing procedures and requirements will remain the same as the regular version of the CSP, as will the six subject Business, Human Resources, Marketing, Sub-Contractors, Snow & Ice Science, and Snow & Ice Operations and Techniques.

"We are happy to offer this opportunity to our members in Canada," says Brian Birch, SIMA's assistant executive director. "The revised study modules and exam now contain all the information relevant to Canadian snow & ice operations, instead of just U.S. laws and practices." The Canadian study modules are available for purchase now, and the first Canadian version of the CSP exam was offered at the 2008 Snow & Ice Symposium in Buffalo, New York.

The CSP program strives to raise the standards of the snow and ice profession by educating leaders in the industry. Preparation for the exam includes meeting eligibility requirements, submitting references, and studying for the exam using the study modules created specifical the CSP program by SIMA.
