'Whether you're looking for training in business, operations or leadership, SIMA's robust resources can be applied to any organization for years to come.'
By Heather Carew
Each year around this time your mailboxes become crowded with catalogs filled with images and descriptions of products that are JUST PERFECT for the upcoming holiday season. You might just throw these away or never actually see them because your kids snap them up so quickly, but that's OK, because the best is yet to come!
The must-see catalog of the season is SIMA's new Online Training Catalog (download a digital copy here). Because quality training is essential to success, this handy piece gives snow & ice professionals a rundown of the training they have at their fingertips through SIMA's Resource 24/7 Online Training Center (www.sima.org/resources). Whether you're looking for training in business, operations or leadership, SIMA's robust resources can be applied to any organization for years to come.
Hot gift idea for your team members
The new Advanced Snow Management certificate program is the "must have" course for 2014. This self-guided, interactive program consists of four modules: Core Principles, Plowing Operations, Sidewalk Operations, and Ice Management. As the only operator-based training of its kind, show your trusted crew members you value them by investing in their industry education as a specialist or a designated Advanced Snow Manager. It will become the gift that keeps on giving, since this knowledge will enable you to market verifiable expertise to clients and insurance companies.
Gifts for all
Don't stop the giving this season! Consider training opportunities for your entire organization using SIMA's team training options. If you're interested in building team strength through education, SIMA will work with you to understand your needs and learn how to achieve them. Following a 15-minute call/demonstration of Resource 24/7, we will create a plan based on who needs to be trained in what area and submit a proposal to you. After the proposal is signed and returned, a training account will be set up and each individual will receive his/her own username and password to access the training.
Happy holidays from SIMA
With all these gifts you've been giving, wouldn't it be nice to get one for yourself too? As a thank you, SIMA would like to offer five free training vouchers to companies who start a team training account. These vouchers can be applied to any Resource 24/7 offering - ASM certificate courses, the Build a Bid estimating package, streaming training videos and more.
