This past week, Paul Rasmussen, VP of Recruiting, Chelsea Wadkins, Recruiting Manager, and Mike Rojas, Student Development Recruiter, were able to attend the CVTA Spring Conference in New Orleans. Commercial Vehicle Training Association, also known as CVTA, was founded in 1996. It is made up of 200 training providers, 20 motor carriers, along with advertising agencies, financial institutions, insurance companies, and educational resources. This association helps provide different programs to continue to improve training programs throughout the trucking industry. CVTA updates members with new laws and regulations and give insight into what the future could be for the trucking industry. According to the CVTA, their school members have a 90% higher placement rate. This means more student drivers who attend a CDL Training School that is affiliated with CVTA have a better chance at finding a trucking career faster. Their mission focuses on excellence in training, developing transportation safety, and how to enhance driver professionalism.
Some of the many topics discussed at the conference include: Recruiting Millennial Drivers, looking into the Future, Fundamentals & Pitfalls of Business Expansion, and Financial Industry Best Practices. Each topic related to each member involved, and all were able to talk openly about their personal experiences and methods for enhancement during round table meetings. By attending the CVTA conference, attendees were able to not only learn more about each topic, but understand other’s expertise and opinions on critical issues facing the industry.
During the conference, PTL was able to sponsor a break in-between sessions. VP of Recruiting Paul Rasmussen also ran for CVTA Board of Directors for the open carrier spot, and won that nomination. Now, being a part of the Board of Directors, Paul will be able to continue to help CVTA achieve their mission and take part in actions to help manage the trucking industry’s reputation. We would like to congratulate Paul on this accomplishment.
