TCA’s WFBCON Attendees to Earn Credits Toward Certifications, New Certificates

Alexandria, Virginia:

Truckload carriers continue to face important human resources issues that will affect the future of their companies. As the average age of the professional, over-the-road, truckload driver tops 49, and a large chunk of those drivers begins to think about retirement, companies are finding that professional development training is the key to cultivating a stronger, more stable workforce. That’s why the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) has developed three new certificates—Human Resources, Recruitment, and Retention—for managers and staff charged with solving the workforce issues they face.

“We are expanding our professional development opportunities because educating and training staff is directly tied to company growth,” explained Ron Goode, TCA’s director of education. “These new certificates, in addition to our Fleet Manager Certification program and a new carrier insurance purchasing certification that we will be announcing soon, show our commitment to providing the tools and resources that support the truckload industry.”

Research supports the importance of earning TCA’s certifications and certificates. An HR Certification Institute and Top Employers Institute study reported that “human resources certification, at both the individual and organizational levels, is positively correlated with stronger results for several important measures of business performance.”

At TCA’s inaugural WorkForce Builders Conference (WFBCON), June 28-30, 2016, in Indianapolis, Indiana, attendees can earn credits toward the new certificates. Credits can also be earned toward renewal of the Certified Fleet Manager (CFM) designation, as well as the North American Transportation Management Institute’s (NATMI) Certified Director or Supervisor of Safety (CDS/CSS) designations.

All breakout sessions, presented in one-hour workshops or two-hour intensive workshops, are assigned subject matter categories that qualify for credits:

  • HR/Legal/Health & Wellness sessions earn credits toward the Human Resources Certificate.
  • Recruitment sessions earn credits toward the Recruitment Certificate.
  • Retention sessions earn credits toward the Retention Certificate.
  • Fleet Management sessions earn credits toward renewal of the TCA Certified Fleet Manager designation.
  • All workshops and general sessions earn credits toward renewal of NATMI Certified Director or Supervisor of Safety (CDS/CSS) designations.

Besides earning credits, attendees will hear from the former global head of automotive marketing solutions at LinkedIn, Patty Cox, who will discuss recruiting drivers, retaining current employees who also contribute to hiring goals, and branding your company to be an employer of choice.

Continuing education for managers and employees is an investment in your company’s future. Register today at and bring your team members to this inspiring, thought-provoking event.
