The Seminar will be held in Guelph, Ontario, will run from 9am until 11am, and will cover 2 great and diverse topics.
Road check 2015 results and how to prepare for a Roadside Inspection:
Kerri Wirachowsky, the Head of the Enforcement Program Evaluation at the Ministry of Transportation will be on hand to take attendees through the results from Road Check 2015, and will go over the top defects discovered. Officer Wirachowsky will also offer insights into how a fleet and its drivers can be better prepared to ensure a road side inspection goes as smoothly as possible. At the conclusion of the presentation those in attendance will have
an opportunity to pose questions.
Driver Mentors Roundtable:
Stan Campbell from Trucker Radio and Alexis Broadcasting will moderate a panel of prominent fleets and lead a discussion on how best in class fleets utilize driver mentors to enhance their training and on-boarding of new drivers. These fleets will discuss how they select their mentors, what type of training they provide them, and what has and has not worked when it comes to developing and managing their driver mentorship program. If you have a mentor program, or are considering instituting one, this is an opportunity to learn from the experiences of those who have developed their own. The panel will consist of two For-Hire Members of the TTSAO Carrier Group Committee as well as two PMTC Private and Dedicated fleets.
On the For-Hire side we have:
Geoff Topping, Director of Recruiting and Retention, Challenger Motor Freight, Caroline Blais, Recruiting Manager, Kriska Holdings Ltd.
On the Private & Dedicated side we have:
Gerald Carrol, Director, Safety & Compliance, Fortigo Freight Services Inc. Jas Singh, Transportation Manager, TDL Group Corp (Tim Horton’s)

“The Truck Training Schools Association of Ontario (TTSAO) appreciates the opportunity to partner with the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada (PMTC) to assist in offering an educational seminar that will benefit private and for hire fleets along with membered schools of the TTSAO.” commented Yvette Lagrois, TTSAO President.
