Are there any good trainers out there??

There have been so many stories posted here and elsewhere about nightmare trainers and horrific training experiences that I wanted to pop in and tell my experience. I'm currently wrapping up my TnT training through Prime, which consists of 30,000 miles driven before I can go solo. I wanted to tell everyone that the are indeed great trainers out there. I have been blessed and so very grateful to have one. He has over 4 years experience driving and is only 25 years old. But this gentleman is knowledgeable and mature way beyond his years! In the first 5 days he taught me more valuable information about driving and the trucking industry than I received from my 3-4 weeks with my PSD trainer. We even have discussed going team after my training. However, because my wife will be joining me, that possibility isn't there at the moment. We have gotten along beautifully with absolutely no negativity or arguing. So, when those of you who are new or are looking to get into this world and are stressed about the training segment, know that there is a possibility that you will be lucky like I am and get a really great person to train you! Just wanted to throw a little positivity out there on what can be a very negative subject. Y'all be safe out there, God Speed and God bless!!

If you don't mind a guy putting in his two cents worth...

I started with Prime last November. The most difficult thing I've noticed was for me to get out of my own way! I put way too much pressure on myself. I worried about the written tests, the pre-recorded, the backing, this, that! I'm surprised I didn't give myself a heart attack or a stroke! It will all come together for you, trust me.... Just think of it this way... Go to a truck stop... Look around at the people that drive trucks.... If they can do it, you KNOW you can!! Just relax and trust the process... YOU GOT THIS!! Best of luck to you and God Speed!! Keep us up to date so we can help and encourage!!

CONGRATS!! I'm in the final stages of my TnT training with Prime and do not regret my decision to go with them one bit. I'm sure you already know, but in the small chance you don't, search for prime and rainy in the search box and you'll find Rainy's diary on her experience with Prime. If you have any questions, holler at me, Rainy, or Turtle. All of us are Primates and are more than willing to help if we can. Plus, there are other Primates on here as well. Best of luck!! And again, CONGRATS!!

On my list of goodies to get once I get my truck assigned:

Refrigerator, microwave, CB, Crock pot, possibly a coffee maker, flat screen, 7" Rand McNally GPS, various audio books...

Have had my laptop with me throughout training and never even got it out of the bag... Will probably keep it with me, Just in case...

I'm sure there are other little goodies I want, like maybe a small electric skillet, etc.... We'll see...
