CTAA’s Certified Community Transit Supervisor training program addresses core transit industry supervisory skills in front line management, human resources management, operations and safety management and performance-based management. To meet the unique challenge facing these important personnel, CTAA has developed the “all new” Certified Community Transit Supervisor “6.0” program. This two-day classroom workshop has been updated to include a wide variety of skills necessary to successfully manage front-line employees and a web-based prerequisite course.

The web-based program (taken prior to the classroom training) will include the supervisor’s role, succeeding as a new supervisor, communicating effectively, leading your team, coaching and counseling, conflict management and decision making, and transit supervisor responsibilities.

Trainees will receive a manual including reference material, sample documents, and other management aids for the front-line supervisor. At the conclusion of this training, class participants are tested in their mastery of these areas. All trainees who successfully complete the examination component of the workshop will be professionally certified by CTAA as Certified Community Transportation Supervisors (CCTS); this certification will be valid for three years, whereupon the supervisor will need to recertify.
