Hello i am also working with dawn. About the cdl program. I start class jan 25th at tmc to obtain my cdl. Its a 3 week program. The cdl class and orientation is all compressed in that 3 week class. I have to commit to tmc for 12 months which is no problem as i plan on working there for a while.

I'm also looking at TMC as well. Got my app in a few days ago looking to see about joining that Jan 25 th class. It's sad that I have a class B and had a permit for my A but my company gave me empty promises about letting me earn my A. I inquired about TMC last year around this time and I could of been apart of there very first training Class for the class A but the time was not right. Maybe this time will go as planned!!!

So basically, the cdl school will be in Des Moines? Which is fine by me. My wife already said she can hold the house down while I am away.

I've been working with Tracey and sounds like I took the same offer as you. I'm in the class starting on the 25th as well.

Really sucks that I couldn't get into class. Hopefully after a while I will reapply to TMC. Finally got my class A through my current company so I'll give it some time so I can get some driving time under my belt. This is the company I really have my eye on. All the benefits are what I want. Have fun and be safe.

Really like what I'm hearing and reading about this outfit . They kinda remind me a bit of my military training in so far as the attitude and style in the cdl program . I am definitely most interested in flatbed and the challenge and unique opportunities that go with it . This definitely looks like a great place to start and grow .
