NPTC Institute Announces 2004 CTP Graduating Class

Alexandria, VA – Eighteen transportation professionals 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 graduates were honored during a ceremony at the NPTC Annual Education Management Conference, May 2, 2004, Atlanta Georgia.

Since the CTP® designation was first introduced in 1993, more than 400 fleet/transportation professionals have earned the right to add CTP® after their names. CTP's are raising industry standards, increasing the respect and prestige of the fleet/transportation profession. It is a benchmark of excellence earned by a select few, but available to anyone willing to make the necessary commitment.
