Trucker test deadline looms in Alberta

March 1 is the deadline to complete testing for Class 1 Mandatory Entry Level Training (MELT) equivalency under the Alberta Transportation farmer and farm worker extension program.

During the pandemic, Team Alberta, which consists of Alberta Barley, Alberta Canola, Alberta Pulse Growers and the Alberta Wheat Commission, along with other producer groups, have been working with Alberta Transportation to reduce lengthy training waiting times, testing limitations, and equipment and language barriers.

The concerns being heard indicate a lack of sufficient training and testing capacity.

Those who need to complete their MELT road test before March 1should contact Alberta Transportation to book the road test date.
