Report From Quality Drivers/Celadon School in Laredo, TX

Since September 2014, the school has been improving a lot. I am really happy about the development right now. The classroom instructor, Jorge, is great in what he is doing. Mat, Marco, and Claudia have been great instructors since I met them, but they are even improving the training since September. Their new instructor, Juan, has been a good addition. I've also appreciated the work of Cynthia and Candy very much. Especially, Candy keeps the whole thing very organized and professional.

Celadon School

Personally, I enjoyed the school and the orientation. They have been improving since I started September 8. They newbies probably won't appreciate the improvement.

Start Date February 16th, 2015 With Celadon! I got into the training program!

I went through their school and I enjoyed it for various reasons. All the instructors are great. It is the teamwork that I like. Even the work with the manager and her assistant is great, and a great improvement compared to September 2014. Even then I like the school although many students were moaning, but it was unjustified. Mat, Marco, Jorge, Juan, Claudia, Cynthia, Candy, or Cindy will always be in my good remembrance because they really facilitated, each in their own manner, the process for me of earning the CDL and become a good truck driver.

CDL Training- Celadon (Hopefully) February 2015 (Hopefully on that, too!)

Hello,

you will enjoy the school as I enjoyed it. When I started at September 8, 2014, the training center was already great and I enjoyed it. However, since then the school has been keeping improving drastically. They have more instructors. All instructors are great. Each one have their own way of teaching. It is the teamwork that stands out according to my opinion. The work between the Quality Drivers manager, her sweet assistant, and the instructors is great. If you don't know their beginnings with their growing pains, then you might not appreciate their improvements since September. I loved their training and so on. The cooperation with the Orientation Facilitator and the Orientation itself is amazing according to my observance and experience.

Employee Driver Relationships

Do trucking companies have policies that a driver cannot be in relationship with an employee from the same company? Does Celadon has such policies?

Probably, we have met already. I went to DPS with the new class to take Doubles/Triples and tanker Endorsements last week.

Next week, I will take the test for the passenger endorsement.

Trucking Companies with APU

Celadon

They allow idling if necessary. They don't allow unnecessary idling. Fuel is expensive.

What happens if your blood pressure is too high

When driving a truck you will have high pressure. If you already have high blood pressure when not driving, you blood pressure will rise even more when driving. You become nervous while driving.

ORIENTATION DAY 1:

The first day of orientation was relaxing. We filled out online paperwork and watched videos. Each apprentice has his own monitor. The videos were about benefits, payroll, and other. There are altogether 13 movies.

Furthermore, we practiced seeside alley docks which turned out to be good.

Hopefully, I have the road test tomorrow.
