Hi All, I'm heading to prime this weekend. My recruiter Barbara Brown has been awesome. I'll have to wait until the 28th to get a trainer due to the holidays but was told I could practice on the sim all I want which is fine by me. I'm excited and scared at the same time :-) :-). Everybody Have a Safe Merry Christmas!!!!

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I'm in the TNT phase of training where you team with your trainer for 30,000 miles before you get your own truck. I love it so far. I'm about 10,000 miles away from my own truck. The training I have recieved has been wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone. Orientation week goes by super fast so be ready. But everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable.

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 14ยข 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.
