TTSAO Position on Advanced Standing

The TTSAO has been involved since the beginning of MELT sitting on numerous industry stakeholders groups as well as attending numerous meetings and consultations with other associations and government.

After completing a review and doing our due diligence on the current advanced standing process, it was agreed the TTSAO would support, along with the industry stakeholders group, introducing a temporary moratorium and recommend a full review of advanced standing for AZ to be completed. 

Two key issues the TTSAO would like the Ministry of Transportation and the Provincial government to focus on is Instructor Certification and DZ Mandatory Entry Level Training.

Thank you,

Kim Richardson – President
