    VMMI: Vehicle Maintenance Management and Inspection

    The Vehicle Maintenance Management and Inspection certification training program promotes the community transportation industry's commitment to safe, reliable transportation through building the professional skills of maintenance personnel and managers. This workshop is geared toward enhancing the skills of maintenance technicians and maintenance managers. This three-day program is designed to improve the maintenance oversight of fleets of smaller transit vehicles (i.e., less than 25-foot length). It is based on an established maintenance training curriculum developed by Halsey King, SAE and applied to countless vehicle fleets nationwide, to which CTAA has added a layer of testing, certification and performance quality.

CTAA recognizes that small-urban transit systems and their leadership face unique challenges - and opportunities - and is firmly committed to providing these systems with the unique and targeted legislative, policy, regulatory, training and research they need to continue to thrive.
