McKendree to Offer Credit for NDTA’s Transportation Academy this Fall

(LEBANON, Ill., March 6, 2019) — As part of a new educational partnership with the National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA), McKendree University will provide college credit through Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for courses offered at the NDTA-USTRANSCOM Transportation Academy this fall. Attendees will earn up to 2.1 CEUs for 21 hours of participation at the conference, to be held Oct. 7-10 at St. Louis Union Station Hotel.

NDTA is a non-profit, non-political educational association of transportation, logistics and passenger travel professionals. Its seventh annual Fall Meeting will provide a forum for critical public and private partnership in defense transportation through discussion about new policies, technologies and best practices.

Hancock, a retired Navy captain and senior intelligence officer, taught a class at the 2018 NDTA Transportation Academy on cybersecurity.
