GA_Rookie... do you know if Crete accepts ONLY the schools listed within their website, or are they open to accept other schools not listed within their website?

Here is a list of Approved Schools for those of you who are interested. I do not think they will accept anywhere else. You are more than welcome to call a recruiter to verify. The number is 1-800-998-2221. I agree with skyflyer69. The schools on this list should be cheaper and have a better quality of learning. I chose the tech college route and would not have it any other way!

the aproved schools didn't work when I hit it guess I'll try something else and see what comes up, lol

Have CDL-A But no School or Road Experience

Dude, you may get by with just a refresher course tbh. That way they can't say you didn't go to school. Its just an idea to throw out to ya and may very well be cheaper in the long run. Once the school sees that you know what your doing they may pass you and you could be done.

Stiff finger joints

Go to Walmart and get some epsom salt, pour about half a cup in a sink with the stopper in and run some hot water. make suer to swirl the water around to disolve the salt and soak you hand in there for 15 to 30 minutes and that should help alot. do this after you take a shower for a week or so, good-luck.gifgood-luck-2.gif

What happened?

I grew up in the 60's-70's. The world is a much different place today. As a child I was taught manners and respect, as were my peers. Unfortunately, as a society we seem to have lost a lot of that. There are plenty of good people out there. A smile and a good attitude will cause those people to gravitate towards you. I do not make room in my life for negative people. Ignore them and look for positive people. There are plenty of us to go around!smile.gif

Thats awesome to hear someone other than me think about manners, Theses days the kids are getting totally out of hand with being rude to anyone or thing.wtf.gif

What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

Army Infantry. Spent some time as a sniper in a scout platoon. Did a plethora of other random jobs as well since I'm a jack of all trades kind of guy. Then I got my pink slip as they made budget cuts. I intended to stay for the full 20 but only got to 12. Now I just go the one weekend a month thing. Here I am!

Was a mechanic right out of high school. Got lucky in that I got started without any schooling and made decent money for my age, and I like working on cars and working with my hands. I LOVE trying something new most people wont try (like painting body panels) because I like to push myself a little bit to excel in the things I enjoy. But I couldn't do it on my own terms, specifically too many instances where people wanted me to cut corners...something I never liked, especially if my name was on my work. Too much emphasis on 'right now' and not 'right'.

Dave I hope we can meet on the road sometime, I'd love to get your insight on working with rifles and suchgood-luck-2.gifdancing-dog.gif
