Did You Know that we have partnered with Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) to offer TIA Members complimentary access to the TAT Certification Program via the TIA Learning Management System? The new training takes TIA Members through a 30-minute online training video that educates users on identifying clues as to when human trafficking may occur, where these crimes usually happen, and how TIA Members are uniquely positioned to help combat this problem in their communities.
