View Topic:

Would you answer a few questions about truck driving training for me? Your opinions and experience would be helpful.

Greetings! I am Rex. I am a 25 year trucking vet, and last 4 years CDL Instructor for a Vocational College here in Southwest Missouri. I will soon be placement coordinator. "meaning my job will be to help our graduates a find a trucking job". I would like to hear your answers on a few questions. I am not necessarily wanting to debate the topics, but rather simply hear other opinions, and or what you may know about the topic.

1) What do you know about the ELDT Mandate happening coming Feb 2022? Have you read anything about it? Has your company mentioned anything as to their plans?

2) On a scale of 1 to5, what is your opinion of trucking schools? 1 being absolutely horrible, and 5 being extremely good.

3) If you could build your own trucking school, what would it be like? Example of some things you would absolutely not teach or absolutely would teach.

4) Is the trucking industry better or worse today than it was back 10 or 20 years ago?

These are just a few questions I would like to have your thoughts or opinions on, perhaps even your personal story. I appreciate your time and help.

TruckingTruth was founded by Brett Aquila (that's me!), a 15 year truck driving veteran, in January 2007. After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
