MILWAUKEE (Nov. 21, 2017) – Douglas Dynamics LLC, parent company of Dejana®, FISHER®, Henderson®, SnowEx®, SweepEx®, TurfEx® and WESTERN®, is pleased to announce that Doug Clark, product manager for Western Products, has earned his Certified Snow Professional (CSP) designation from the Snow and Ice Management Association (SIMA).
Clark joins fellow Douglas Dynamics CSP employees, including Andy McArdle, director of product marketing for Douglas Dynamics, and Daniel Gilliland, training manager for SnowEx.
SIMA’s Certified Snow Professional certification was developed for owners, operators and executives within the snow and ice industry. It focuses on the critical elements of running a professional snow business and recognizes a level of service, quality and value to customers.
To achieve certification, applicants must complete a 200-question exam in less than three hours covering topics such as HR Management, Sub-contracting, Snow and Ice Science, and Snow and Ice Operations and Removal Techniques. Once accredited, professionals must fulfill annual requirements, including continuing education credits, to stay ahead of developments in the industry, general business practices and professionalism.
“We’re very proud of Doug for this accomplishment,” said Mark Adamson, executive vice president of Commercial Snow and Ice for Douglas Dynamics. “CSP certification supports the ability to relate and engage with customers, which is critical for identifying opportunities or challenges with customers. The results are better service and better business, values Douglas Dynamics and its family of brands are literally certified to deliver.”
