Crystal Arlington becomes ASCA certified

Industry News

Arlington and her colleagues are the first snow contractors to complete the education track.

| October 3, 2012

The Accredited Snow Contractors Association (ASCA) announced that Crystal Arlington achieved ASCA Certification along with several of her colleagues as the first group of snow contractors successfully completed the newly launched 10-hour education track. “The association's ASCA Certified program is the result of establishing the first ‘industry standards’ for the professional snow and ice management industry,” said ASCA Executive Director Kevin Gilbride.

“The overall goal of establishing standards and a certification process is to lower instances of baseless slip-and-fall claims and to get a handle on controlling insurance premiums. It is believed that the "ASCA Certified" designation, along with ISO9001/SN9001 certifications, will serve as a strong deterrent to litigators pursuing frivolous slip-and-fall lawsuits,” Gilbride said.

“I am proud to join other snow industry veterans in this important certification and I am dedicated to continuing education in the field that improves safety standards,” said AGMG CEO Crystal Arlington.
