Truck Driver Training in Michigan
With nearly 56,000 trucking companies in the Great Lakes region, finding a job with the ideal trucking company is not difficult. The demand is high and these companies are looking to acquire well-trained and safe drivers.
Through the partnership between CDL Michigan and International Trucking School, doors are being opened for many individuals looking for rewarding pay and benefits, as well as an occupation that is flexible. For veterans, the doors have been opened even wider because they are able to train at International Trucking School at no cost to them.
Because of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, veterans are able to build new careers at no cost to them because the GI Bill pays for their education. They are also able to make the most of careers as truck drivers because so many industries are in need of truckers to transport goods and materials domestically.
Through the Post-9/11 GI Bill, veterans are able to complete both accredited and non-accredited training that will lead them to the career they wish to have. Many veterans choose careers as truck drivers because they know that there are many opportunities in the Great Lakes region and beyond. They also like the flexible scheduling, the low stress work, and the competitive pay and benefits. They choose International Trucking School because of the number of course offerings and job placement.
The current course offerings at International Trucking School include Truck Driver, Accelerated, Basic Truck Driver, Commercial Truck Driver, Tractor Trailer Driver Specialist, and CDL-A & Michigan Heavy Equipment Training. Online classes are also available.
With CDL Michigan and International Trucking School joining together, veterans are given the tools they need to become the best in the industry. CDL Michigan also takes it a step further by providing a practice test on their website so that students can test their skills before sitting for the real exam.
Job placement is another benefit to the collaboration between CDL Michigan and International Trucking School. With thousands of jobs waiting to be filled and approximately 111,000 projected to be available in 2014, job placement after graduation can help graduates connect with the career they have always wanted.
