Looking for a starter company, but with a catch...

Looking for recommendations please.

I have been googling for a week now and am still kind of at a loss. Here's the deal, my son and I would like to get our CDL's and drive as a team. My son being a new father cannot go four weeks without a paycheck or at least some expense (lodging/meals) coverage. I am struggling to find a good list of companies that provide CDL training AND hire teams. Prime seems to fit the bill for the most part but 4-6 months of time with a trainer seems excessive. Ideally we would like to train together but I realize that is a long shot.

For what its worth, I am 57 and he is 22. We both have spotless records and are both heavy equipment operators.
