TORONTO, Ont. — The Truck Training Schools Association of Ontario (TTSAO) held its annual general meeting in Toronto earlier this week and there was a lot of key issues discussed at the event.
The TTSAO took the time to discuss with attendees the the importance of TTSAO membered schools’ clients receiving training over the road on manual, non-synchronized transmissions.
“With membership’s unanimous vote to ensure all students receive a minimum number of hours on a non-synchronized transmission, they are sending the message that this is very important to our industry, for clients and for road safety in general,” said Madam President, Yvette Lagrois.
Every client who attends a TTSAO/MTCU approved school will spend a minimum of 24 hours of a 200-hour training program to education on manual transmissions.
“For us at TTSAO, it shows the industry, government and motoring public that the membered schools of TTSAO are committed to doing what is in the best interest of the public road safety. This decision was supported by 100% of the carrier membership of the TTSAO”, Lagrois said.
