CFI company sponsored training through Truck Dynasty Driving Academy

Hi,

May I ask if on what state you've been train?

4-24-17 Day 1: First off there are three people in my class and I am the only one from CFI. The other two are on their own dimes. We all have our permits, so we won't be spending class time going over that. We started out filling out paperwork and watching a video on sexual harrassment. Then the other two had to go do drug tests and physicals. When they came back it was time for lunch. When you go to training through CFI you get $15.00 per day for meals. It's not much, but it can be streatched. The only place to eat near the school is the truck stop across the street. They have a restaurant and convenience store. After lunch there was a video which covered CDL/CMV basics. Much of the stuff you need to know for your permit. The next video was on log books. After each video was an easy quiz, based on the video and discussion. The quiz could be answered while watching the video. The last section was trip planning. We used the Rand McNally road atlas for that. We have to finish that up in the morning. Then it's out to the range. They have late model KWs with 10 speed transmissions. He said we'll start with backing and may go on the road in the afternoon. We will get the opportunity to work with all of the instructors. They want us to learn quickly and they will help us as much as we may need. Also, they gave us a copy of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. As far as pre trip goes, they will give us a sheet to study and it's up to us to learn it. They will help us as much as we need. We just have to ask. That's all for day one. Day 2 starts at 07:00. I'll get picked up at around 06:45.
