CALGARY, Alta. — The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) recently broke ground at the site of its new ‘Centre of Excellence.’
The new headquarters and training centre will be constructed at 61st Ave. and Wrangler Way S.E., near many of the AMTA’s member fleets. The association plans on moving into its new facility in November.
The new office will be 13,000 sq.-ft. and will include offices and classrooms, as well as a drive-in bay that will accommodate a tractor-trailer to enhance hands-on training opportunities, the association has announced.
The office will also be equipped for Web-based conferencing and online learning.
“This state-of-the-art training centre has been conceived with the transportation industry in mind and with a strong focus on serving the industry, now and into the future,” the association announced in a release.
The recent groundbreaking ceremony was attended by members of the AMTA Board of Directors; the Alberta Workers’ Compensation Board; and member fleets.
