CRTS Canada

Certified Relocation and Transition Specialist (CRTS) is the first, oldest and only senior move management "certification" program in Canada and the USA.

Although every professional industry group (organizers, stagers, realtors, movers, auctioneers, care providers, etc) has "industry specific" educational programs for working with seniors, CRTS is the only program that banners all of the providers together with a common educational thread and standard of practice.

The CRTS designation formally organizes the senior move management vocation into a straightforward and definable consumer category - comparable to the recognition of a franchised brand, without all of the fees.

CRTS Canada is an executive level business preparation and enhancement program designed to build profitable, meaningful and lasting businesses, combined with a qualified international referral network.

The designation is offered 4 times per year in a classroom setting and is available as a 20 hour video home study course.

eSMMART

When asked the secret of his success, hockey legend Wayne Gretsky said, ”Some people skate where the puck has been; I skate where the puck is going.” Older adults is where the puck is going.

eSMMART 2.0 is web-based training about working with older adults. Organizers who successfully complete 9 courses receive a Certificate in Senior Move Management (cSMM). Credentials are important, and competency is even more important. eSMMART gives you both.

eSMMART 2.0 is mobile, global and interactive. Courses are web-based and work with both Mac and PC computers and notebooks. eSMMART is available 24/7. You take courses around your schedule. There is no travel, lodging or food expense.

eSMMART is a rigorous credential. When you complete the nine courses, you will have spent more than 25 hours learning and answered more than 250 questions. eSMMART makes continuing education credits easy and affordable. At the end of each course, you can print a certificate that documents your accomplishment, including the number of hours, subject covered and date. The Senior Living Industry in Canada is different from the U.S., so there is a U.S. version and a Canadian version. B sure to purchase the Canadian version.

eSMMART also offers complete PowerPoint presentations to help you grow your business. HR in a Box provides you with a Complete Employee Handbook, including forms and a sample Non-Compete.

Not only are courses new, eSMMART now offers Public Speaking 2.0. We are so confident that you will love this course that we are offering a refund if you are not satisfied.
