Just wondering your thoughts on this or if it even matters for a rookie? I can do paid training through a mid size company and training is only three miles away. 4 weeks training and 5 weeks with a trainer. Or would I be better off with a mega carrier training program? Both are similar in starter training pay.

Thank You.

The smaller company is more like mid sized and more based in my area.

Isn't this the same question you posted a week ago?

A week ago I asked about paid training vs school. This is a different question thanks.

I don’t know what you consider “mid size,” but I’d be more interested in the stability of the company. Such as; how many miles can they promise, how many students have they graduated in the past year, what percentage of students stay with them more than six months, etc.

I guess I’m thinking beyond the training period because that’s where the rest of your life is.

Something else to consider; if they’re a smaller company, do they have dedicated instructors? If not, that could make big difference in the education you get...or DON’T get.

I hope this helps.
