“The Professional Transport Operator program is vastly different from anything that we have seen in the market. With the program blending in-class instruction, 3D simulator practice and in-truck training, grads will have the competitive edge necessary to apply for top jobs in the transport sector,” said Yvette Lagrois, Vice President of the Ontario Truck Training Academy.
Highlights of the program include a four-month internship with leading-edge transportation companies, 50 hours of one-on-one in-cab instruction, a Truck Training Schools Association of Ontario Diploma, training on 3D simulators, air brake training and a Commercial Driver Improvement (Defensive Driving) Course Certificate. Classes begin this October in Brampton and December in Oshawa, with plans to launch the program across several triOS Ontario campuses.
“The combination of Supply Chain & Logistics with Tractor-Trailer AZ makes this program a game changer for the industry. With internships embedded right into the program, we have no doubt that graduates will be job-ready and invaluable to employers,” said Frank Gerencser, Chairman and CEO of triOS College Business Technology Healthcare.
Placement rates are expected to be high for this program due to the current success of the triOS College Supply Chain program. Graduates of the program have gone to work for reputable companies such as Ryder Canada, Smurfit MBI, Day & Ross Transportation Group, Maple Leaf Foods, Laidlaw Carriers and others.
