NPTC Honors 104 Certified Transportation Professionals® (CTP)

ARLINGTON, VA – A total number of 104 transportation professionals have achieved the prestigious designation of Certified Transportation Professional® (CTP) by the NPTC Institute, the educational and professional certification arm of the National Private Truck Council (NPTC). The CTP program is sponsored by J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. The graduation ceremony took place in conjunction with the NPTC Annual Education Management Conference and Exhibition April 21-23, 2024, in Orlando, FL.

Since the CTP designation was first introduced in 1993, nearly 1,800 fleet and transportation professionals have earned the right to add CTP after their name. CTPs are raising industry standards, and in turn, increasing the respect and prestige of the fleet and transportation profession.

“These new Certified Transportation Professionals have demonstrated the knowledge and ability to understand complex operational and regulatory issues, identify and evaluate potential costs and savings, and develop systems and practices that best meet their company’s transportation needs and objectives,” said Mike Schwersenska, CTP, General Manager, Brakebush Transportation, LLC, and Chair of the NPTC Institute Board of Governors that oversees the program.

“The CTP designation is a benchmark of excellence earned by a special few, but available to any fleet or transportation specialist willing to make the necessary commitment of dedicated effort,” he added.

Each year, FleetOwner magazine sponsors the CTP Top Graduate Award. This year’s Top Graduate was Danielle Siecienski, CTP, Safety Manager, New South Express, Inc.
