Neenah, WI - J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of transportation safety and compliance solutions, announced that two 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 designations to eight.
J. J. Keller associates Mark Cunningham and Ronny Jones were among the graduates honored at a ceremony during NPTC’s 2016 Education Management Conference and Exhibition on April 24.
Gary Petty, NPTC President and CEO, said that CTP status is one of the most prestigious and widely-respected professional credentials in the truck and 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,” Petty said. “CTPs are raising industry standards, and in turn, increasing the respect and prestige of the fleet and transportation profession.”
Cunningham and Jones qualified for the certification program based on their formal education, fleet management/supplier experience, 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, covering 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 demonstrates our associates’ professionalism, knowledge in the field of transportation and fleet safety, and commitment to continuous improvement,” said Chad Govin, vice president of sales - corporate and national accounts, at J. J. Keller. “The knowledge they have gained will enable them to help J. J. Keller customers improve safety and compliance in efficient and effective ways.”
