Surprise the Government worked fast in a good way

I am working towards getting all my endorsements on my Class B that I currently have before getting my Class A permit. I set up my HME appointment to do my fingerprints, finish the application process in person today at 1100. I went in presented the documents they needed and paid my fee. With the notion I would have 30 or so days to study for the tests. Low and behold shortly after 5pm I get an email saying that TSA had approve me for a HME and would let the DMV know. The only thing I can think why it went so fast is because I currently work for a Federal LE agency and have to go through background checks for my current position. So with that I need to hit the High Road training and state manual to expedite my progress to the next phase of life.

Been lurking but possibly soon to be ex Federal worker getting ready for the jump

Rob, yes that is the program.

They are a local to me program so that is what attracted me to them. They run out of the midwest and the training is done in Coon Rapids, MN where they have a terminal. No NY or CA for the OTR division.

Good luck with your new endeavors at Cowan.

Been lurking but possibly soon to be ex Federal worker getting ready for the jump

Well I have been lurking for about a little over a year planning my 3rd career when the kids grow up but looks like that will be jump started thanks to Mr. Potatohead. I am a federal worker currently and unless the senseless dictate get rescinded I will be fired around Christmas for refusing to take the vax. I contacted Magnum Trucking today about there "Drivers Apprenticeship Program" and like what I heard. They have class starting every 7 weeks with a 1yr commitment for the 6 weeks of training that is 40hrs a week at $14hr, 4 weeks in a truck with a trainer getting paid mileage, then onto your own truck. They offer OTR, Regional, Linehaul, and P&D. They also have a position called "Maverick" which travels for a week to a terminal in need. I know that I would prefer regional or OTR first but the Maverick position sounds like something that would be rewarding after learning the trucking game for a year first. Thanks to everyone here for all the posts they have been very informative and I hope to learn more before beginning a new career whether that is on my terms or someone else's with an agenda.
