VMMI: Vehicle Maintenance Management and Inspection
The Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) offers a unique training and certification program for maintenance managers and staff. The Vehicle Maintenance Management and Inspection (VMMI) training program promotes the community transportation industry's commitment to safe, reliable transportation through building up the professional skills of maintenance personnel and 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.
