EDMONTON, Alta. — The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) is bringing the trucks and terrorism workshop to the Edmonton area for Northern Alberta fleets.

The one-day seminar, put on by the RCMP’s Operation Pipeline/Convoy, was recently held in Calgary but members in the Northern part of the province have requested a seminar for their region as well. They’ll get their wish Sept. 18 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Edmonton German Canadian Cultural Association at 8310 Roper Rd.

Registration must take place by Sept. 13. While the training is free, there is a $15 + GST fee charged to cover the cost of lunch.

The U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and Mullen Transportation are all partners in the seminar. It is aimed at helping fleet managers and truckers recognize and intercept in-transit criminals from using trucks before a terrorist incident occurs. For more information, call the AMTA at 403-243-4161.
