Company CDL Program rattled my confidence.

To start off, I have been looking to get my CDL for a while. I signed up with one of the company ran CDL programs in another state that was fast paced (only 3 weeks of training then on the 4th, everyone tests). I have never driven a tractor trailer in my life, the only thing of size i have maneuvered was a 26 foot U-hual; for some background. The first day there we did all paperwork then the second day all the other groups were doing pre trip and getting a feel for the trucks. The trainer I had brought us straight to the street and he didn't train, he stayed quiet until you did something wrong then he yelled at you. He yelled to pay attention to stuff he didn't even teach you, he contradicted himself a lot as well. I am not soft by any means but I did not feel this was appropriate. I tried to switch trainers but was not able to. Needless to say, I left the program and pretty bummed at that. I want to continue my trucking journey at a proper school but this situation has left me a little rattled. All in on, i survived 3 hours driving with live traffic, alley docked and drove on the highway.

any advice? thank you
