Hello i am also working with dawn. About the cdl program. I start class jan 25th at tmc to obtain my cdl. Its a 3 week program. The cdl class and orientation is all compressed in that 3 week class. I have to commit to tmc for 12 months which is no problem as i plan on working there for a while.

I've been working with Tracey and sounds like I took the same offer as you. I'm in the class starting on the 25th as well.
