Meet Rockfarm’s recent employees to pass TIA’s CTB course, becoming Certified Transportation Brokers (CTB).
Earning your CTB is the highest broker certification that exists and the most widely recognized distinction in the transportation industry. Our most recent group of those certified have ranged from first-year carrier sales to seasoned veterans.
“The TIA Certified Transportation Broker course is very informative and is certain to improve the knowledge of industry veterans and beginners alike. We at Rockfarm recognize that Dubuque, IA is not a large Logistics/Transportation hub, therefore we’ve devoted ourselves to growing our own talent. Offering this certification course internally not only assists in the growth of our team members in their individual career paths but also strengthens Rockfarm as a whole.” Matthew Randecker, Vice President of Solutions
TIA’s CTB coursework includes a rigorous online home study and exam program that covers all aspects of the transportation industry, leaving those who become certified with a wealth of knowledge.
“The material we cover in our course work and throughout the extensive, cumulative exam process required to obtain our TIA-administered Certification for Transportation Brokers (CTB) demands a dedication to understanding the foundation of the laws, ethics, operations, and relationships that support and insulate the transportation industry. In my experience, the achievement of completing the TIA’s CTB program brought about a new-found respect for the evolution of our industry’s regulations and services as they have changed throughout the years.” Dalton Graham, Customer Pricing Manager
