Start July 9th company sponsored training....excited a little nervous any advice?

I went to Roehl’s truck driving school in 2016. Great program and people. I wouldn’t worry too much about preparation. If it’s the same program you’ll go to Fox Valley Tech for a month for your training. It’s very hands on and not a lot of classroom work. They want you to succeed so don’t be to nervous. You’ll check into your hotel when you get there. It’s very nice and they feed you. The training is daily. About 8 hours a day. It was about 15 people in my class. They split you up into groups of 2 or 3 to a truck with 1 driver trainer. You have plenty of time to study at the hotel. After the training you’ll go on the road for 2 weeks with a road trainer. It’s not too bad. After that you’re on your own. Be prepared to learn a lot on your own on the road. Luckily you’re going in July. I went in January. I assume your home base will be the Gary Indiana hub. Nice hub. ****ty location. Good luck.

I start July 9th at Roehl in appleton Wisconsin. I’m freaking pumped and ready to go. I’ve gotta admit I’m a little nervous. I’ve been watching the pre trip videos over and over so it won’t be new when I get there. I’m trying to get through the whole high road training before I get there too. I’m gonna go up there ready to learn and do whatever they tell me. Any advice on other preparation in the next two weeks? Any advice on what to do when I get there? Thanks
