In CDL School
At 55, I find myself in the middle of life looking at a career change. After 20+ years of working in I.T., my position was "eliminated"-I took a part-time job and found that the job market for I.T. professionals is geared more to the newly graduated 20-somethings and frankly was NOT looking forward to living the rest of my 'working' life in a cube. SO I noticed the Technical school near my home had a nice trucking program. I used to kid myself that "if everything else fails, I can go to trucking school"-I've always had a fondness for driving long distances, away from the routing commutes and traffic hassles. I drove local delivery in the Atlanta area for 8 years and loved it! Then I saw a program on the History channel about truck stops and how FAR trucking has come. Internet access, comfortable cabs and sleepers, modern trucks, etc.
SO I thought I would drop by the school just to look into the costs, length of program, etc. and found it was actually QUITE affordable and only took 7 weeks! SO I signed up, and here I am, studying the CDL training program here on Trucking Truth (EXCELLENT study aid!!!)and reading as much as I can. My goal is to become as SAFE and PROFESSIONAL a driver as possible. My plans are to be a long-haul driver for at LEAST a year and maybe switch to regional or local driving later. Looking forward to my NEW ADVENTURE!!
