People on the Move – eSMMART LAUNCHES THE NEXT GENERATION IN SENIOR MOVE MANAGEMENT TRAINING
eSMMART, an online learning platform for Senior Move Managers and their employees that was
launched this week, dramatically expands training opportunities for the fast-growing industry of
Senior Move Management. eSMMART is a collaborative training initiative developed by industry
experts in Aging and Senior Move Management, including Terra Nova films and 371 Productions.
The National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) announced the new program in an
email to membership on October 22.
eSMMART was initiated by Margit Novack, Founding President of NASMM and President of
Moving Solutions, a national Senior Move Management franchise organization. “As an industry
pioneer, we thought it was important to take a leadership role in establishing quality standards
and in developing affordable, accessible training,” said Novack. “eSMMART is designed to share
the expertise, culture and values of the Senior Move Management industry.”
“One of the most important aspects of eSMMART,” said Novack, “is that it is designed for
employees as well as business owners. eSMMART is based on the principle that front line
performance is where the rubber meets the road.”
eSMMART provides a Certificate of Achievement in Senior Move Management for users who
successfully complete four core and four elective courses. “eSMMART provides Move Managers
and their employees with the training they need and the recognition they deserve,” said Novack.
eSMMART has been approved for continuing education credits by several national training
organizations, including Certified Relocation and Transition Specialist (CRTS) and Certified
Senior Advisor (CSA). Novack hopes that other organizations will seize upon the opportunity for
low cost, high quality continuing education credits as well.
