The CTM is recognised as an important industry qualification for middle and senior management and is an excellent opportunity for career development. The CTM is supported by Transport for NSW, BusNSW and private operators.

The four day program includes presentations by industry representatives, specialist consultants and academic experts, designed to develop practical skills for the industry, as well as interactive exercises. The networking benefits are an important aspect of the CTM. The course content is reinforced by four assignments completed after the course.

In 2017, ITLS and Transport for NSW are offering up to four fee scholarships for individuals working in Community Transport Organisations (CTO’s). Applications close 5pm Friday 28 April 2017.
