Front Range Compliance Services – Resume of Ryan Byers
Providing Service to carriers throughout Colorado

August 1, 2012

Dear potential client of Front Range Compliance,
I am providing a copy of my resume to your company to assist you in identifying my qualifications as a DOT Safety Consultant.  I am confident that my combined experiences, strengths and interests are an excellent match for the future of your company.  My nine-year track record in the Colorado Patrol, Motor Carrier Safety Section has broadened my experience and knowledge of the commercial vehicle industry. As an experienced Motor Carrier Safety Technician/Trooper III for the Colorado State Patrol Motor Carrier Safety Section (MCSAP), I have worked successfully in challenging environments and understand the strict requirements of commercial motor vehicle safety regulations and training.

In my role as the MCSAP Training Coordinator, I developed effective training programs for both the Colorado State Patrol and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).  Additionally, I managed multiple initiatives to enforce safe work practices: Colorado Inspector Certification Program, State of Colorado Rule Making, Colorado Farmer and Rancher Inspection Program, Small Commercial Vehicle Inspection Program and DataQ’s requests for the State of Colorado.  As a result of my expertise in safety compliance, the Colorado State Patrol and the Federal Motor Safety Administration recognized me as a subject matter expert in Commercial Motor Vehicle Regulation and Operations.  In 2010, the FMCSA, National Training Center selected me to be a Master Instructor.  With this assignment I trained new instructors throughout the nation in commercial vehicle regulation, compliance, and operations.

My strong oral and written communication skills have contributed to the effective management of projects between the local law enforcement agencies, State Patrol, and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.  My experience with the commercial vehicle industry as well as the state and federal government has trained me to be thorough, analytical, and consistent in commercial vehicle transportation and regulation.  I believe my experiences and skills in safety compliance, training, and management will make excellent contributions to you and your business.

Thank you for your time and consideration.  I look forward to speaking with you further about my qualifications and what Front Range Compliance can do for your company.  If you have any questions, please contact me at ryan@frontrangecompliance.com or my Cellular (720) 951-1184.

Sincerely,
Ryan Byers
