CALGARY, Alta. – The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) and BIS Training Solutions have turned safety into an collaborative effort, joining forces to deliver both classroom and online workplace health, safety and high-risk activities training courses.
The partnership launches in February and positions the AMTA to offer over 250 training courses, as well as the majority of certifications and programs required in the trucking industry.
“AMTA continues to advance road safety in Alberta”, said AMTA executive director Lorraine Card. “We are now able to offer an ever expanding library of health and safety/transportation industry online training that is aimed at operating safely. This deal cements AMTA’s position as the best source of affordable and effective training, geared specifically to the province’s bus and truck industries.”
The partnership means that AMTA trainers will deliver classroom courses that require industry-specific expertise, and online courses will be offered by BIS Training Solutions, such as management training for state-of-the-art learning management systems used to track, manage and administer the certifications most required by fleets and employees in the industry.
The association’s partnership with BIS will also mean several enhancements to AMTA’s website, including a new event registration system and an online store to purchase compliance materials.
BIS also took part in the AMTA’s 2016 Lloydminster Safety Conference and Tradeshow Jan. 27.
