)-- This past Sunday, Steven Garrish was recognized for earning the designation of CTP at the 2017 CTP Awards Ceremony held at the National Private Truck Council’s Annual Meeting in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Steven Garrish, SVP of Safety and Regulatory Compliance at SleepSafe Drivers, one of the nation’s leaders in Fatigue Management Programs (FMPs) for the transportation industry and other high-risk related jobs, was officially designated a Certified Transportation Professional. The CTP designation certifies the knowledge and ability to understand complex operational, financial and regulatory issues, identify and implement organizational savings and develop systems and practices that meet and exceed a company’s transportation objectives and needs. He joins 1,600 other transportation executives who have received this distinguished certification, seen by the trucking industry as a benchmark of excellence.
The many years Mr. Garrish has spent in the industry at leading companies such as JB Hunt and Walmart were just the beginning of the qualifications needed to become a candidate for this rigorous certification course. Individuals seeking the designation need at least five years of fleet/transportation supervisory, management or supplier experience plus a combination of formal education, continuing education in transportation management or on-the-job experience.
The curriculum focuses on five core fleet management disciplines: finance; safety; human resource; equipment and maintenance and operations with a rigorous two section exam.
“The study and work required for this certification was one of the most challenging courses I’ve ever taken. The knowledge one can gain from the CTP process helps to bring deeper insights as well as opportunities to network with other industry professionals from all over the country,” said Steven Garrish, SVP of Safety and Regulatory Compliance at SleepSafe Drivers.
