DRIVER MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
NEW DRIVERS! START YOUR CAREER!
You are new to driving. You are eager to start your career. But, where do you learn how to be a professional driver? If you are asking these questions, now is the right time to join our Driving Academy.
The Driving Academy contains both a Driving School (in-house) and a coveted Driver Mentorship Program.
Driving Academy: Driving School
Start your training journey by entering and completing our 4-week “Driving School”. The Driving School includes both classroom education and On-the-Road (OTR) training. The Driving School is our strategy and commitment to provide above-industry-level training to our new drivers.
The Driving School involves a total of 40-hours, over a 2-week period. The first 20-hrs are dedicated to In-Class training. Additional hours are added as needed to ensure that all our employees are confident and comfortable before graduating.
Additionally, 20-hrs are dedicated to On-The-Road (OTR) training, including both In-Cab (in the truck) and In-Yard (yard activities). The mix of classroom and OTR is designed so that students do not experience boredom, but rather experience a variety of learning, engagement and satisfaction.
One-half of each day is dedicated to In-Class workshops and learning. The second/remaining half of each day is dedicated to OTR training.
Completion & Victory Lap
The Driving School takes 2-weeks to complete, with additional days added if the new driver needs more time for OTR Training.
Driving Academy: Driving Mentorship Program
After you graduate from the Driving School, it is now time to enter our coveted Driver Mentorship Program. This Driver Mentorship Program includes 6-months of training, delivering real freight for real clients.
The Driver Mentorship Program is the first of its kind. The program provides excellent training through a dedicated and specialized strategy, where an experienced driver (mentor) is paired with a less experienced or new driver (mentee), in order to guide the mentee in developing the skills that the mentee requires to perform his/her job adequately. The mentor shares his/her skills, knowledge, best practices and experience with the mentee.
