Michael's Bio

I am a Navy veteran and have been in the restaurant business for 25 years. I am ripe for a second career. I used to keep a car battery and CB radio in my bedroom when I was a kid to listen to truckers talking.

Just starting High Road Training

Now 25% done with High Road Training. Awesome course that keeps me from forgetting anything - miss too many and its REVIEW TIME! Time to pick up the pace as I can see my 1st career coming to a close sooner than I planned. I figure when I get to 50% done I will start applying to companies that provide CDL school.

Any good recommendations for a 2nd career guy?

Just starting High Road Training

So far so good! I have finished the first six pages and plan to do a few pages each day and be done by Thanksgiving. I want to take the time to do a good job and really know the material, and I can't make a career move until then anyway.

A few questions.

Do you change the question bank from time to time?

What is the hiring market like during the end/beginning of the year?
