Competency-Based Training for Pilots
From the beginning of operations, APTA continues to adhere to our 3 Pillars of Excellence; Safety, Training & Integrity. With safety as the primary focus, we created and provided competency-based training and certification for our own pilots.
At the request of some of our clients, we have also provided training or workshops for their pilots/operators and employees in order to strengthen the skills of their entire team.
Understanding the industries need and desire, APTA’s sister company, Canadian Pilot Truck Training (CPTT) was founded to fill the need.
