Idealease, Inc. is pleased to announce that David Bement, Director of Technical Training, and Kevin Kure, Manager, Sales & Training, have earned the prestigious Certified Transportation Professional® (CTP) designation from the National Private Truck Council Institute (NPTC), the educational and professional certification arm of the NPTC. The two were honored at the NPTC Annual Education Management Conference and Exposition held on April 24-26, 2016, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The CTP® program was established in 1993 to enhance the respect and prestige of private fleet and transportation professionals.

To earn the CTP designation, individuals must demonstrate the knowledge and ability to understand complex operational and regulatory issues related to private fleet management, identify and evaluate potential costs and savings, and develop systems and practices that meet their company’s transportation needs and objectives.
Bement began his career as an ASE Certified Master Automobile Technician, Truck Technician, and Engine Machinist working for various privately owned shops and dealers. In 1999, he began his teaching career at Universal Technical Institute with a focus on all areas of automobile and truck technology, including transport refrigeration. Bement joined Idealease in 2012 as the Director of Technical Training, responsible for ensuring that all Idealease sales and service professionals have the knowledge and skill to provide customers with the expertise, responsiveness, and stability they expect from Idealease.
Kure started his career with Idealease five years ago as a Sales Engineer. In 2014, he became the Manager of Sales & Training, responsible for the Idealease University, North American Rental Program, IMPACT Program and President’s Club.
