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!
