DENVER, Colo. — North American Transportation Management Institute, the neutral certifying body of skills sets for transportation professionals in North America, has named Simcoe, Ont.-based KRTS and E&B Safety Consulting as NATMI Authorized Education Partners.
“This partnership allows individual transportation organizations and individuals to take their commitment to professional development to the next level. NATMI designations demonstrate professionals have mastered the competencies of a defined set of skills deemed the industry standard beyond their job titles,” said Joel Morrison, NATMI director of business development.
NATMI is no stranger to the Ontario trucking industry as many local professionals have received their Certified Director of Safety designation.
For Kim Richardson, president of KRTS, the NATMI partnership enforces his company’s commitment to their professional instructors and the Industry.
“Hopefully sometime in the future the Ontario Government and legislative bodies will endorse NATMI and embrace higher education just as the industry has. The bottom line is better trained drivers (means) safer roads,” he said.
“It is incredible to offer this certification to Safety and Training Professionals in Canada,” said Brian Botham, a NATMI Certified Director of Safety who has delivered numerous courses for safety and training professionals. “The NATMI course and designations are by far the best and unrivalled anywhere in North America. We are now able to bring a level of professionalism and certification to the transport industry that has never been seen in Canada.”
