DIEPPE, N.B. — The Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association, in conjunction with the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, is hosting a ‘train-the-trainer’ session on Oct. 5-6, for the new Canadian cargo securement laws that are to come into effect Jan. 1, 2005.
The new legislation has been developed around the North American Cargo Securement Standard.
The two-day seminar will be held at the Ramada Plaza Crystal Palace Hotel in Dieppe, N.B., and will be presented by John Pearson of the CCMTA. Pearson has been involved in the development of the standard from the beginning and is recognized as an expert in the field across the country.
The training consists of 13 modules, the first two deal with the science and physics of the standard and the remaining 11 deal with specific cargo types, modes and characteristics.
