Matt Richardson, PMTC YLG Chairperson, had this to say about the upcoming event: “The PMTC YLG is happy to be completing our 3rd annual Christmas meeting and educational session. The turn out the past couple of years has been great and we are hoping the same for this year. As in previous years, the event will feature a charity component with donations (food and monetary) being accepted for the Cambridge Self Help Food Bank. This is an excellent opportunity for PMTC and PMTC YLG members to support the Cambridge Food Bank heading in to the holiday season, along with getting together for a networking and learning opportunity”.

The second annual TTSAO conference was a big success. There were many great panels and the Mike and Stan Show was fabulous. The focus of the conference was on the image of trucking and how to attract people to the industry. Below are a few pictures from conference and make sure you don’t miss next year by signing up for the TTSAO newsletter.
About the TTSAO
Thanks to the concerted efforts of a number of professional training organizations, the commercial trucking industry here in Ontario may soon see some significant changes for the positive.
A large number of Registered Private Vocational Schools and other organizations, specializing in truck driver training came together to formulate the Truck Training Schools Association of Ontario. One of the TTSAO’s principle concerns is to ensure that all drivers entering the field maintain a minimum level of knowledge and ability consistent not only with the needs of their employers, but for the safety of the general public with whom they interact with each day.
The TTSAO envisions that through the co-operation and joint efforts of all schools involved and the industry itself, specific standards and educational programs can be set for drivers that will not only prove more realistic but much more effective than those currently being put into place by various government agencies.
