Company sponsored Training

Hi, I currently live in Ohio and am looking for information about the best company training to suit my needs.. any advice/ opinions are welcomed and appreciated!! The training would be for me and my fiance, we are looking to team up afterward thanks. Preferably a training program that does not have a lot of up-front cost.. We are not concerned about being split up during training obviously if needed. Thanks!!! (I will be 22 in two months and he is 23..) I have one speeding ticket ("15 or under" almost a year ago when I had first gotten my license) and a clean background. He has a clean background and a clean driving record. But he has not had a license long.. :/

So it's looking like Company sponsored is the best option. Anyone know which companies are best suited for training us? Will they let us team up right after training. Thanks to all who have answered so far. :)

We will be getting financial aide. We are also aware schooling does not count as experience hence why I said afterwards to do the company training route.. But, it seems on one side why waste time doing the college route..? But, anyone know how much you get paid in training? Also community college is 15 weeks, generating income for 10.

So, basically if i understand correctly, do the community college route, then on to a company sponsored program. This gives experience and a job. :)

Thanks so much for your response! So, basically community college is the way to go. Also, I do have a speeding ticket on my record that I forgot to mention, it was over a year ago... He has nothing on his.

Okay, thanks for the reply!! We just were sure if we would be able to find a job...., considering that we want to drive as a team and we would both be inexperienced. Training separately isn't a huge concern just being able to team drive afterwards is. :)

Starting out/ needing advice

Me and my boyfriend are looking to get into trucking.. But, we are stuck at which route to take. We have been looking into a course at our local community college where we can use our financial aide as well as company sponsored training. We can see the benefits of both, such as with the community college option we can work where ever we choose when done but are not guaranteed to be able to find employment. In this course we do a 5 week class and obtain our license, then for the next 10 weeks we are employed and generating income with a motor carrier (separate of course.) As with the company sponsored training we receive training and a job, but are tied down but able to get experience. We really want to be able to drive together ASAP. We also realize with company training we will be separated as well for training but, afterwards will we be able to drive together? Also how long will we be separated? We have also played with the idea of doing the community college program first, then trying to find employment and save money. Then if we can't get a job on our own we can do company sponsored and have saved enough money to pay the bills while we are gone.. I also believe we make more money already having gotten our license? I'm not sure, plus this way if we can't find a job, more experience can't hurt us right? Any and all advice/ ideas are appreciated. Thanks!!!
