ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) may soon don an extra hat since assuming responsibility for the North American Transportation Management Institute (NATMI).
NATMI is the provider of the university-accredited certification program for fleet safety, maintenance and driver training professionals. The American Trucking Associations (ATA) along with NATMI agreed to transfer administration responsibility to the TCA due to their experience in the realm of industry training and education.
“NATMI, TCA and ATA have worked together to make the transition of NATMI to TCA complete and seamless. NATMI is a logical extension of TCA and its existing training opportunities, and all three organizations are committed to the future success of this valued institute and its efforts to advance industry safety and fleet efficiency through continuing education,” says David Barefoot, ATA senior vice president and chief operating officer.
Since 1944, NATMI (formerly known as the National Committee for Motor Fleet Supervisor Training and Certification) has trained and certified transportation professionals. Since 1993, NATMI has utilized the resources of Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP’s) Highway Safety Center for certification, accreditation, course review and instruction, which will continue under the TCA.
There will be no changes in NATMI’s membership requirements, seminar content or certification processes resulting from the change in administration.
