OAKVILLE, Ont.–A new education bursary unveiled by the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada (PMTC) will help the industry’s young leaders cover half the tuition fees for specialized training in logistics management, said a release today.
Every year, two recipients of the PMTC Young Leaders Education Bursary Award will tap into funding to pay for two of the four courses needed to complete the PMTC Logistics Management Graduate Program, which is comprised of select courses from the CITT program of study.
“This intensive program arms emerging leaders with the skills and confidence to be successful in their organizations and to adopt best practices in private trucking,” says Mike Millian, PMTC president. “In addition to earning a certificate issued by Canada’s leading association for private fleets, recipients can also use their credits towards earning CITT’s CCLP designation.”
Candidates for the bursary must:
Be employed by a current PMTC member company, or be the child of a PMTC member company employee.
Be nominated by their member company.
Submit a resume detailing their education, work history, and volunteer or community service.
Complete an essay of 650 to 1,000 words, explaining why they are a strong candidate for the award and outlining personal goals for advancement in the transportation industry.
Submit a letter from their employer, explaining why they are a strong candidate for the award and detailing succession plans which follow graduation.
Employers are responsible for paying the initial tuition fees when registering for the program. The bursary is paid once two courses are successfully completed in one academic year.
The PMTC Logistics Management Certification Diploma is awarded after successfully completing Transportation Systems, Logistics Process, Logistics Decisions Modelling, and Business Approach to Writing courses.
