Becoming a truck driver requires both comprehensive and technical training. Drivers and companies are required by federal law to understand the laws & rules required for the safe operation of the trucking industry. It's not simply learning how to operate a truck - instruction goes well beyond shifting gears.
We understand that a company may require specific skills from their drivers based on their business model. We also understand that training should not be "cookie cutter" based and limiting the student to trainer ratio will result in a more personalized learning experience.
As the need for drivers grows, so does the need for education in operating commercial vehicles safely. It is estimated that 1 person is injured or killed in a truck related accident every 16 minutes. Working directly with industry members & regulatory agencies will provide insight of the most critical training needs.
