The Canadian Self Storage Association is extremely excited about the success of this very informative and interactive opportunity for learning and training. We are thrilled to announce that so far we have Certified 51 new Self Storage Professionals as successful participants and graduates of the one and only Canadian O.C.C.!
THE C.S.S.A. OPERATORS CERTIFICATION COURSE!
This course is made up of the following four segments and is currently available at each of the C.S.S.A. Canadian Events.
Segment 1 "Sales & Marketing" – Implementing an effective and strategic marketing plan. This should be attended by everyone and anyone to help to understand the best way to fill your self storage facility. You will not only have some guidance on where to spend your advertising dollars, but how to turn those calls into customers!
Segment 2 “Operations on the Front Line” – This segment covers everything you, your managers and staff could encounter in a day from dealing with bad debt, interacting with customers, potential problems, and robbery to everything in between!
Segment 3 "Operations – Daily Management" - This segment covers all issues from hiring the right people, how to weed out the bad before you hire them. HR issues. This is a must for all owner-operators, property managers and district managers, but would be a benefit to any manager to understand the business better.
Segment 4 "Accounting" – Although successful owners should know most of this already, managers who understand exactly how much it costs to make the phone ring are a greater asset. We are not going to teach you about Trial Balances and bookkeeping here. This is a simplified course teaching an understanding of accounting in our industry.
This Canadian Operators Certification Course is truly a fantastic way to improve your business and it is a comprehensive way to train and retrain your staff quickly and at minimal cost. Upon completion of all four segments there will be an online Operators Certification Course Examination and upon successful completion the Canadian Self Storage Association will issue a Certificate of Merit and Completion Recognition! For more information and pricing options (for the individual Segments) of the Canadian Self Storage Association Operators Certification Course, please contact us at email@example.com or by phone at 888-898-8538.

It is with great pride and enthusiasm that we would like to welcome back to Ontario,MR. MICHAEL T. SCANLON, President and CEO of the Self Storage Association in the U.S.A. Mike Scanlon has forty-five years of executive experience in local and national politics, in prominent and visible local and federal government positions, in private industry (as an entrepreneur and start-up investor, representing tens of thousands of small businesses, a public corporation and a Fortune 500 company) and most recently in the not-for-profit sector as the executive vice president of a national foundation and currently as president & CEO of an international trade association.
"I have had the distinct honor to work for several leaders elected by the American people: one fine mayor, two distinguished U.S. Senators and three Presidents of the United States. Those years were the most valuable and powerful learning experiences of my work life. I would encourage all young people to spend time getting involved in politics and serving in government."
