    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 US 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 areas: 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 US laws and practices.”

    The Canadian study modules are available for purchase now, and the first Canadian version of the CSP exam will be offered at the 2008 Snow & Ice Symposium on Thursday, June 19, 2008 in Buffalo, NY.

    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 specifically for the CSP program by SIMA.

    For more information on the CSP program, to order study modules, or to register for the exam in Buffalo, please visit www.sima.org, call 414-375-1940, or email ellen@sima.org.
