Neenah, WI -  J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. — the nation’s leading provider of transportation safety and compliance solutions — has announced that four additional associates have achieved the designation of Certified Transportation Professional® (CTP) by the National Private Truck Council (NPTC). This addition brings the number of current J. J. Keller associates who have obtained their CTP designation to 12.

J. J. Keller associates Dean Olejniczak, Scott Rose, Heikki Darrow, and John Smith were among the graduates honored at a ceremony during NPTC’s 2018 Education Management Conference and Exhibition on April 29.

According to NPTC President and CEO Gary Petty, CTP status is one of the most prestigious and widely-respected professional credentials in the transportation industry.

“Successful graduates have passed rigorous experience qualification, training, and examination standards covering the core disciplines, best practices, skills and knowledge found in private fleet management operating at world-class levels,” said Petty. “CTPs are raising industry standards, and in turn, increasing the respect and prestige of the fleet and transportation profession.”

The four J. J. Keller associates were eligible to begin the certification process based on their fleet management/supplier experience, formal education, active participation in the fleet/transportation community, and continued pursuit of education.

The CTP certification process includes a curriculum focusing on the knowledge, skills and abilities essential to successful fleet-transportation management, categorized into five core areas: operations, finance, human resources, safety, and vehicle and equipment maintenance. The program also includes an exam with case study review and analysis.

“The CTP® designation provides our associates with a deeper understanding of the challenges facing transportation professionals, which will help them better serve our J. J. Keller customers as we continue to expand our offering of first-class safety and compliance solutions,” said Bob Larsen, senior director of marketing & sales integration for J. J. Keller.
