  • NW Fleet Maintenance Certification Program

    Modeled after our successful fleet safety program, the NW Fleet Maintenance program is now part of the OTA University curriculum. This latest certification offering is designed specifically for maintenance managers and those interested in fleet maintenance management. The year-long course will cover the basics of running a shop and maintaining a top-notch maintenance program, including rules and best practices. Some topics will overlap with the NW Fleet Safety Certification Program, such as leadership skills and safety culture. 

    The 2019-2020 class is complete, and we are now accepting students for 2021. Sessions for the upcoming year will be held monthly virtually (or OTA office in Portland when it's safe to do so) starting in June 2021. See the schedule below. Discounted pricing is available for OTA members.
