SIMA’s ASM University makes it easy and cost effective to sign up any number of employees to become Advanced Snow Managers in 30 days. For each person you sign up, you save money, build loyalty AND develop a skilled workforce.

This program was developed with snow professionals from across the US and Canada, in alignment with professional training best practices. The courses are impactful, using video, images diagrams and quizzes that are available 24/7. The materials will be available for years after completion of the courses for any refreshments needed. Each person that becomes an advanced Snow Manager will receive an official marketing kit to promote themselves and the company they work for.  


SIMA has now joined the ranks of less than 50 organizations nationally who 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. Learn more from ANSI. SIMA issues certificates for the following certificate courses:
  • Advanced Snow Management - Core Principles
  • Advanced Snow Management - Ice Management
  • Advanced Snow Management - Plowing Operations
  • Advanced Snow Management - Sidewalk Operations
