Thomas,

Can you let us know how long it takes to get into the program? Will we have to wait for a class to start or is it on-going?

Once again I have to thank everyone for their feedback of encouragement!

I've spent the past 24 hours researching Company Sponsored Training and have decided to try and get into one of these schools as they seem to have a little more time dedicated to shifting. " Sandman" really got me remotivated with his in-depth log of the Knight School as they are one of the few that hire from New Hampshire. So I'll be on the phone with them first thing tomorrow.

You guys Rock!

Hey Kurt,

Welcome to this great forum!

I'm looking into Knight also and found that " Sandman " took the time to log his detailed experience throughout the program. Check out this link.

Yeah , I certainly learned great lesson about reading the contract entirely before signing it. The part about having to be 80% proficient by drive #4 ,I must have glossed over , thinking that I wouldn't have this much trouble with. I knew the part about being Dismissed for Insufficient Progress , but thought we'd have more leeway...

Decision Time ..

In my neck of the woods there seems to be plenty of opportunity for class b . That's besides the point , I'm desperate to get into. a big rig! Ever since i agreed yesterday to downgrading it really hasn't sat right with me. I've driven 5 & 6 speed vehicles my whole life. i think I'm doing well into a. B with the academics in class,but the reality is i dont have the extra cash for the time. I'm almost ready to take the gamble of signing on to another scho iintool assuming its just going to take some extra time for me to get this one part. Been talking with an old friend who has many years on the road who confirms my thoughts that after i sign on for a year they would be more apt to spend the extra time vs a small school that doesn't want you to over-rev HIS truck even. just for the sake of learning .If i wasn't getting ANY of the other techniques we've been shown id probably be greatful to get into a B. He admits I've got the knowledge and upshifting is great ,so I'm halfway there . Bottom line is I'm not giving up just yet! Maybe i can get some feedback on choosing a specific school over another ?

Thanks OldSchool ! I understand the motivational factor as in most cases I find myself doing the motivating. At this point I'm trying to think logically about my choices. Obviously having to switch to a B doesn't sit well with me, but at 200/hr to get extra help, I'm sort of between a rock and a hard place..

Thanks again for your continual vast of knowledge and experience!

Based on Schism's and all of your very supportive posts, I've gotta ask the question, does anyone think if I were to switch to a Company Sponsored Training Program, they would give me more time being that they have a vested interest in making sure I master the art of down -shifting? I certainly feel if I had more time to learn it ,I would. Schism and I have had many conversations, even before class began, thanks to this wonderful forum and I have the utmost respect for him and his unique perspective on our class.. It doesn't hurt that he is one of the two drivers that have already progressed to hauling the trailer and is looked up to by the rest of us who gets something brand new thrown to us everyday..
