Any takers.... for trainer? I can be ready Aug 25. Passed written test for Permit with endorsements, including Hazmat. Let me know and I'll create a new email address and post it.

Rainy D- if you read this, I put you as referral on application. Got your 'real name', off a posting you did earlier this week.

Thanks EVERONE for making this such a great educational site. Especially, thank you Brett.

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

Thanks so much. We get referral bonuses and although I should ask people to mention me I never do lol.

Keep in mind you will probably have to retest cause MO no longer transfers permits frim what I understand. And three days is optimistic. They had us in the SIMS for 5

Hang at the pad and look interested in learning the pretrip. Trainers get bonuses for students who pass but bigger bonuses for one's who pass on the first try. They want students who 2ant to learn.

First, congrats on starting with Prime! I really enjoy it! What division are you planning on go in? I would not get in a rush to get a trainer!! Just don't hop in the first truck you see! I made that mistake....a very bad experience! Check out this link....this will help you get through your PSD and TNT training. Have any questions don't hesitate to ask! Good Luck! https://www.truckingtruth.com/truckers-forum/Topic-14807/Page-1/2016-prime-training-update-i

PSD:

Prime Student Driver

Prime Inc has a CDL training program and the first phase is referred to as PSD. You'll get your permit and then 10,000 miles of on the road instruction.

The following is from Prime's website:

Prime’s PSD begins with you obtaining your CDL permit. Then you’ll go on the road with a certified CDL instructor for no less than 75 hours of one-on-one behind the wheel training. After training, you’ll return to Prime’s corporate headquarters in Springfield, Missouri, for final CDL state testing and your CDL license.

Obtain CDL Permit / 4 Days

  • Enter program, study and test for Missouri CDL permit.
  • Start driving/training at Prime Training Center in Springfield, Missouri.
  • Work toward 40,000 training dispatched miles (minimum) with food allowance while without CDL (Food allowance is paid back with future earnings).

On-the-Road Instruction / 10,000 Miles

  • Train with experienced certified CDL instructor for 3-4 weeks in a real world environment.
  • Get 75 hours of behind-the-wheel time with one-on-one student/instructor ratio.
  • Earn 10,000 miles toward total 40,000 miles needed.

TNT:

Trainer-N-Trainee

Prime Inc has their own CDL training program and it's divided into two phases - PSD and TNT.

The PSD (Prime Student Driver) phase is where you'll get your permit and then go on the road for 10,000 miles with a trainer. When you come back you'll get your CDL license and enter the TNT phase.

The TNT phase is the second phase of training where you'll go on the road with an experienced driver for 30,000 miles of team driving. You'll receive 14¢ per mile ($700 per week guaranteed) during this phase. Once you're finished with TNT training you will be assigned a truck to run solo.

So... it turns out I have a female trainer friend who normally does TNT but she is considering PSD. She's a non smoker Christian but puts up with my sinner butt. I met her while in PSD And she is one of those awesome people who I can call anytime day or night for help. She's had both male and female students.she's been driving 18 yrs or so and has both tanker and reefer experience. Driving reefer now. She is a lease op. Her last student quit cause she was homesick.

Call me 856 283 8800. I'll see what we can do. ;)

Rainy D, you are crazy to put your number up! lol

Eh... I miss the heavy breather calls we used to get before caller ID. Maybe someone will oblige me lol. My block button works.

I love torturing sales people tho. .. would take up some of my drive time.

Once had a psychic call me at 8am. I told her I was sleeping and she should have known that if she was psychic. "Had you called at 3am when I'm awake I would have given you my last dime. But you're fake so screw off".

ATT wireless wouldn't stop calling so I went apocalyptic on them. "You work for the antichrist. You want to sell me a phone with a number. The book of revelations says the number is the mark of the beast and will be on the right hand....I'm right handed and would hold the phone in my right hand.Repent! Repent!"

They never called again.... and I hijacked another thread. ..

::hangs head:: sorry

No problem. When you go solo get with me cause my FM is awesome and I have already hooked 3 people up with him. He knows I'll help in any way I can ;) so no excuses for being late hahahah

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
