DIEPPE, N.B. — To ensure companies are operating successful, efficient safety departments, the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association (APTA) is endorsing Certified Director of Safety Training from the North America Transportation Management Institute (NATMI).
The training is the only recognized safety manager accreditation program offered in Canada for the trucking industry.
NATMI has partnerships with over 35 state trucking associations and has moved into the Canadian market forming partnerships with the Ontario Trucking Association and now, the APTA.
The course spans over five days and includes motor fleet safety basics, managing motor fleet safety programs, and concludes with a certification exam.
“I would recommend this program to anyone involved in the safety aspect of the trucking industry,” said Karen Spellman, safety and compliance manager, General Freight Carriers. “It not only provides all inclusive training for any organization’s safety official, it also provides sources for answers that may not always be obvious, which we all know is common in the ever changing world of transportation.”
The course is offered at $1,600 for members of partnering associations. The first course will be offered from May 15 to 19 at the APTA’s new training room at 725 Champlain Street, Suite 400, Dieppe, N.B. For more information visit www.apta.ca.
