Australian Sports Turf Managers Association launches turf management certification program
The Australian Sports Turf Managers Association (ASTMA), the peak industry body for turf management in Australia, has announced the launch of an Industry Certification Program for Sports Turf Management, recognising Certified Sports Turf Managers as the leading sports turf professionals in Australia’s sport and recreation industry.
The Australian Sports Turf Managers Association Certification Program is aimed at encouraging turf managers to invest in their continued professional development, and to promote to Australia’s sport and recreation industry the position of Certified Sports Turf Managers (CSTM) as the leading sports turf professionals in the country.
Introducing the program, ASTMA Chief Executive, Mark Unwin states “becoming certified is a mark of industry-leading professional competence. It indicates reliability in depth and quality of sports turf management performance, skill and knowledge and assists greatly in elevating the profession of sports turf management.
“We have seen the results from similar programs overseas, and the impact it has had on recognising the professional of turf management as critical to the sport and recreation industry. We are thrilled to develop and launch a program aimed at continuing to develop and endorse the many hard-working and committed professionals within our industry.”
Attainment of Certification provides Sports Turf Managers with professional certification, as well as elevating the turf management sector through demonstrating a commitment to education, personal development, environmental stewardship and continuing professional development. All Certified Sports Turf Managers will be widely regarded as having attained the highest level of professional certification in the industry, achieving a minimum standard of continuous professional development and broadly recognised the best sports turf managers in Australia.
Formed in 1981, ASTMA, a not-for-profit association, represents more than 1,500 members from all areas of the sport and recreation industry and supports members through education and advocacy, facilitating Industry Awards, and research and development into professional and environmentally sustainable turf management.
Through working to improve the knowledge, welfare and professional standards of its members and other industry professionals, the ASTMA is committed to the production of quality of facilities for Sport & Recreation in Australia.
