Maine Motor Transport Association provides training on issues related to the trucking industry. We monitor these issues at both the state and national levels to ensure that we provide you with the latest in skills, knowledge and abilities. Our trainings are designed for owner/operators, safety directors, dispatchers, technicians, and drivers. We provide both a list of our upcoming seminars as well as the same information in a calendar format on our website. You can register for the training you need at either location. If registration isn’t available, the training isn’t scheduled at this time.
As with all trainings, registration is closed when the all of the seats are taken so it’s vital that you do not wait to register for a training you’re interested in.
