Our store has the ability to match products in the insurance world with the individual needs of our members. Whether you're a governmental agency, a nonprofit corporation or a small business, the insurance Store can be your one-stop resource on all insurance needs and services.

    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.
