And so it begins…..

I enjoyed reading your experiences Etch. I don't know if I'll see you down there, but I will be starting my orientation on Monday. I'm hoping my class size is small as well.

Sleep test required if already on CPAP?

Thanks, Stevo and Sandman. I appreciate the feedback. I'm so excited to finally get started. I thought about waiting until after the holidays to get started but my recruiter said that January usually had some of their largest class sizes because everyone wants to wait until after the holidays. I think starting on Nov. 28th should let me finish up orientation before Christmas weekend and then hopefully come home for the holiday weekend and get my paperwork to the dmv to upgrader my license and then hook up with my trainer after Christmas.

Sleep test required if already on CPAP?

I figured that I would just add on to my story on this thread instead of starting a new one. I've been a daily reader of TT for the last 6 months and finally took the plunge. I applied to Prime last Monday and two days later I was already approved to attend orientation starting Nov. 28th. The High Road to Online training really made it pretty simple to get my CLP so I really appreciate this site for having all of the information in one place. I took my drug test today and am trying to start studying the pre-trip inspection by Daniel B. Not being mechanically inclined by nature, are their any tips on how to memorize all of the parts that need to be pointed out besides the pictures? Is it reasonable to start by memorizing the wording of what I am supposed to inspecting and then enhance that by matching it up with actual experience while on the pad since I don't have a truck to walk around now?

That sounds reasonable. I just didn't want to have to pay for a study just to go through the motions when we already know what the outcome will be.

Sleep test required if already on CPAP?

Greetings all. I have been contemplating a possible career change as I am facing the possibility of being laid off after 25 years in IT. Trucking has been an interest of mine since high school and sounds like something that I would enjoy doing at this point. I keep seeing posts of people being sent to have sleep studies done, and understand the need, but I already know that I have sleep apnea and have been on CPAP for the last 15 years. Will I still be sent to have another sleep study done at my expense or will they accept that I have already been diagnosed and just designate that I must remain compliant?
