PMTC unveils new driver training scholarship



MILTON, Ont. – The Private Motor Truck Council of Canada (PMTC) has revealed a new scholarship that will be awarded at its annual conference in June.

The new scholarship is called the PMTC Professional Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Training Scholarship. The recipient of the award will receive a complete TTSAO or PTDI certified training course through KRTS Transportation specialists, or $5,000 towards another approved school if the winner is from outside of Ontario.

Making Eligibility Easier (MEE), a division of ISB Canada is sponsoring the scholarship.

“In recognition of our continued alliance with the PMTC and our new partnership with the TTSAO, ISB and our MEE Driver Qualification platform, we are excited to be sponsoring this year’s PMTC Professional CMV Driver Training Scholarship,” said Michael Thompson, CEO of ISB Canad. “The first, and one of the most important steps to enrolling a new student or hiring a new driver, is having them fully qualified by the MEE Driver Qualification platform.”

PMTC president Mike Millian said: “With MEE so graciously deciding to move to sponsoring the new award this year, it has allowed Aviva Canada to move into being the new sponsor of the PMTC-Aviva Fleet Safety Awards, which was a perfect fit for Aviva and their goals of promoting best Fleet Safety practices…The PMTC is grateful to the supporters of the goals and objectives of promoting best practices in fleet safety and training, and thanks Aviva, MEE and KRTS for working together to promote all three.”
