"Training at Crowder College is now 3 weeks instead of 4 weeks as you will be testing in an automatic truck and have a restriction for automatics on your CDL."

this is copied from post on another forum from someone who is Now attending CFI training thru Crowder, just thought I would let everyone know. Also I planning to start around 2nd week of January, my current boss didn't seem to happy that I would be quitting, I think cause she know she have to hire someone else.

If you do, then go home to wait for a trainer after orientation, you may have to go back to Joplin if they can't get a trainer to you. Just something to think about.

Where did you hear that CFI's school is going to 3 weeks and in automatics? With CFI you are out with your trainer, after school and passing your CDL, for at least 7500 miles. That is usually 3 weeks. CFI's schools are training and testing on manuals. CFI's fleet is now almost 100% all auto shifts.

The CDL training is still going to be 4 weeks in school, that gets your 160 hours certificate. As I confirmed today, CFI has no plans to change to training and CDL testing to autoshifts. CFI uses two private schools, Crowder College and Truck Dynasty. They are the ones doing the CDL trading and testing. After the four weeks at the school, you go back to Joplin for 4 days of orientation, then you go out with your trainer/finisher for at least 7500 miles. The time with your finisher usually takes about 3 weeks.
