CDL Training For Veterans
Making the transition from military to civilian life can be difficult without proper career training. Many times the skills that took years to acquire in the military do not have much application in the civilian world. As a result, your ETS date can be a scary one. What happens next, how do I start making a living and providing for my family? Where do my veterans’ benefits come into play?
Well, the good news is you have some great options in the trucking industry. Transportation has always led the way to economic recovery in this country and the job opportunities have never been better. According to the American Trucking Association, there are expected to be over 175,000 truck driving jobs needed to be filled in the next 10 years alone.
Why Truck Driving?
- Trucking is secure, the job can never be sent overseas.
- Full-time drivers get benefits, medical and life insurance, 401k’s, pension plans, vacation, and sick time.
- The pay in trucking has never been better. Most of our students’ average starting pay is over $50,000 in just the first year.
- Home time options have never been better either. Most of our students choose jobs that have them home every day.
- Training is fast and jobs are plentiful….get to work now!
