Advanced Snow Management

Xtreme Snow Pros Chris Marino, Glenn Kramer, and Joe Capobianco Jr. earn SIMA accreditation

It’s been an exciting week here at Xtreme Snow Pros! Three members from our management team have received Snow & Ice Management Association (SIMA) accreditation, further legitimizing their expertise in the world of snow and ice removal. Our own Chris Marino, Owner, Glenn Kramer, Operations Manager, and Joe Capobianco Jr., Business Developer, have earned their Advanced Snow Manager (ASM) designation.

At Xtreme Snow Pros, we are always committed to providing high-quality, dependable, and affordable winter weather management services. With over 30 years of experience in the snow and ice removal business, Xtreme Snow Pros provides every client with affordable, worry-free snow management solutions. Their accounts include retail establishments, corporate office buildings, healthcare facilities, apartment complexes, and homeowner associations.

As such, our management team is constantly completing new course and credits to further advance their knowledge of the industry we know and love. With dangerous wintery weather causing thousands of people to crash throughout Northeast winters ever year, the Xtreme Snow Pros team knows it’s possible for us all to navigate the blustery weather in a safe and smart manner.

Now proudly the recipients of ASM designations, these three gentleman bring with them to the table:

● Serious training – Building an effective, quality training program for snow operations is challenging. SIMA has made it easy to create consistent, reliable training for operations managers and operators.

● Stronger people – Strength of service is only as good as the people who power it. The ASM program helps build confidence and leadership and empowers snow personnel to become more efficient and knowledgeable during snow events.

● Safer operations – ASM focuses on creating a culture that rewards safety and seeks to reduce the chance of injuries, and service failure. This includes standardized methods of organizing and documenting work that occurs onsite.

And the list goes on. Having completed the program, each person completed four certificate courses: Core Principles, Plowing Operations, Sidewalk Operations, and Ice Management. Individuals complete the courses, and then take a quiz to assess knowledge. Those who earn all four certificates receive the ASM designation, an official training credential from SIMA.

We are incredibly proud of our management team here at Xtreme Snow Pros, and we are even prouder to have three leading figures with ASM designation as we move forward.

 

Continued Education - Advanced Snow Management Certification

The team behind New Jersey and New York’s Xtreme Snow Pros operation this week announced they are attending the first class of ASM University, owned by the Snow & Ice Management Association (SIMA), in pursuit of having official Advance Snow Manager certification by April 1, 2017. Chris Marino, Glenn Kramer, and Joe Capobianco will all be in attendance as they complete a program for earning a nationally recognized credential that will set the Xtreme Snow Pros Company apart from the competition.

SIMA’s ASM University encourages any number of employees to become Advanced Snow Managers so all clients can know they are working with experienced and serious professionals. The program can be completed in 30 days, and it saves all attendees time, money, and skill development with expert course instructors and hands-on staff assistants. The course was developed with snow professionals from across the United States and Canada in mind, in alignment with professional training best practices.

To ensure all students walk away with a better understanding of the snow and ice management industries, the program is impactful, using video, images diagrams, and quizzes that are available at any time. The materials are then available for years after the program so all participants can refresh their memories and stay sharp on their newfound knowledge. For each student who completes the course, they will receive an official marketing kit to help them better inform their clientele of their distinguished certification.

The Xtreme Snow Pros team is part of the March certification program, slated to be completed on April 1. By achieving the SIMA certification, Xtreme Snow Pros will be able to boast their expertise in the areas of snow and ice management, specifically in their designated New Jersey and New York service areas.

The team felt passionate about being part of SIMA’s latest course because they want to be one step ahead of everyone else in the game. Xtreme Snow Pros understands that people want to feel confident about a company tasked with keeping their surroundings safe in the winter. Being able to present official certification with a nationally renowned organization for potential clients will assure them that they are always in great hands with Xtreme Snow Pros management.

SIMA is part of an elite organizational group, less than 50 in number, that have achieved ANSI accreditation for issuing certificates, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the International Facility Management Association (IFMA), and the Institute of Food Safety, Health & Hygiene. SIMA issues certificates in the following courses: Advanced Snow Management, Core Principles, Advanced Snow Management, Ice Management, Advanced Snow Management, Plowing Operations, and Advanced Snow Management, Sidewalk Operations.
