I have no idea where my card is, so I have always brought my passport and original birth certificate and never had any problems. Congratulations to Spaceman Spiff! (two more S’s)....dancing-banana.gifdancing-banana.gifdancing-banana.gifdancing-banana.gifdancing-banana.gifdancing-banana.gif

There should never be any issue with PackRat's identity. He's always the guy with the most luggage. Lol

Hey Spaceman! Congratulations!!dancing-banana.gifdancing-banana.gif TNT phase?:) Same trainer?

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.

I actually had to go to the localSS office to have my name "fixed" per admission advisor @ Roadmasters Had my SS card since I sent for it at age 12 or 13 and YES I laminated it lol still good shape after 45 years, anyway.

Had my name as Steve, had to get the 'N' added for Steven pfffft ....was the same @ local WIOA office, was questioned why the differences in my name? like duhhhhhh......Only 1 who ever called me by my full legal name, was my mom when she was mad ! ...Have the "newer" B.C., I had to get that for my passport back in 2016.... I Have plenty of ID, my DL / BC / SS card / Philippines resident "alien" card (same as the passport "ID" card) and an Arizona state "ID" card only

WIOA:

WIOA - Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (aka WIA)

Formerly known as the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), the WIOA was established in 1998 to prepare youth, adults and dislocated workers for entry and reentry into the workforce. WIOA training funds are designed to serve laid-off individuals, older youth and adults who are in need of training to enter or reenter the labor market. A lot of truck drivers get funding for their CDL training through WIOA.

Dm:

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.

Hey Spaceman! Congratulations!!dancing-banana.gifdancing-banana.gif TNT phase?:) Same trainer?

No, unfortunately he is solely PSD phase training only. Finalizing my license as soon as I can get it and then standing by for a trainer.

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.

I think I sent Hunt a picture of my taped over 50ish year old SS card. Was willing to go get a new one (not supposed laminate or tape over it... of course if it wasn't it wouldn't still exist after so long)... they didn't need it. Cerified birth certificate was needed for my "one day in office" "orientation". Everything else was done online beforehand.

Looking forward to doing that again soon. Soon as my sugery and recovery is done anyway!
