CONSTRUCTION TRUCK OPERATOR TRAINING - CTOT
About CTOT Training
"A public/private partnership dedicated to training operators in the safe, legal and professional operation of construction trucks"
A group of highway heavy contractors along with the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the Minnesota State Patrol, and Hennepin Technical College are working together in a proactive role on the safety of trucking in the highway heavy construction industry.
Most companies indicate that large risks are in the areas of construction trucking and traffic control. The CTOT Program is intended to assist you in helping manage the construction trucking risk. Make sure if you hire outside trucking that you include them, as you plan who should attend a CTOT program.

"Duininck has used CTOT from it's inception. We send all our commercial drivers license holders through some level of CTOT training every year. This training keeps our drivers up to date on construction truck regulations, truck inspections, brake adjustment, load securement, hazardous material handling, safe vehicle operation including behind the wheel vehicle dynamics and safe driving techniques. The financial rewards to our company in both reduced premiums and low losses make this program one we are unwilling to change. This CTOT training has proven to be extremely cost effective."
Rick Maursetter, Risk manager, Duininck, Inc.
"Kevin Vito conducted several 8-hr HazMat Recertification Classes for our Emergency Response Team. His combination of creative hands-on exercises, examples shared from actual events, and up to date best practices techniques kept both our new members and experienced veteran team members engaged and participating for the full 8 hours. Even with my 15+ years of experience attending and conducting this type of training class, I picked up several new things. I highly recommend Kevin Vito and Hennepin Technical College for effective hazardous material and emergency response team training."
