Swift Academy - Memphis Tennesse 7/11/15

Cherity, sounds like you're all set up!

My one piece of advice, as if you haven't run across this here: You will get frustrated with the backing exercises. Figuring out where the rear end of the trailer will go is a learned art. Patience and Practice will be the things you need to use the most.

You were right. I got very frustrated and started to doubt myself and how bad I wanted this. I failed my skills the first day and literally cried. I called my husband and he talked me down so I went in the next day determined. I passed that day. Got sent to Decatur to do my road training. I failed my DMV test the first try with the same problems(the 90). Tried 2 days later and I now officially have my CFL's. You definitely have to be determined and focused. It doesn't come easy.

Swift Academy - Memphis Tennesse 7/11/15

Well I got sent home last Monday because my temporary license would expire before I graduated. Because they are backed up on third party testers for Alabama they plan on sending us to a school in Athens, Alabama after we are done in Memphis. Leaving out Sunday for another try. On a brighter note, while I was at home waiting on my license to come in the company that my husband currently drives for offered to pay back my tuition if he would stay with them. So I will be attending the academy but do not plan to drive for Swift. They will train my husband to mentor me as well.

I enjoy reading your diary. I am starting tomorrow myself and know a little of what to expect now. They are bringing my husband on as a mentor to train me after the academy. I'm anxious and nervous.

Central/Swift: From Training to Upgrade

How does the repayment work? I am planning on driving team with my husband but the company he is with(and is very happy with) doesn't offer cdl training but they offer tuition reimbursement. He is considering leaving to go to swift in order to get my training paid for. But the I'm not fond of having to sign a 2 year contract. I was just wondering if using this training program and then going with another company and getting the loan paid by tuition reimbursement is an option.
