I'm new to the forum and I’m considering training at TDDS Technical Institute, if you have dealt with them in any way I’d appreciate reading / hearing your thoughts.

Their most known for Truck Driver Training and Diesel Technician Training. This seems to be their specialties.

Some of their Info

The person “Disagreed” with the complainant: http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/TDDS-Technical-Institute/internet/TDDS-Technical-Institute-Truck-Driving-School-RIP-OFF-Internet-539617#comment_1

Just wondering if the claims they make are true, false, exaggerated or a lie. See claims below.

They claim #1: Our Truck Driver Training is known throughout the Transportation Industry as second to none. They claim #2: TDDS Technical Institute has been the leading truck driving school and diesel mechanic school in Ohio since 1973. TDDS offers truck driver training programs for all levels of experience.

Wondering how is the staff to deal with? I’m asking mostly asking this question about their Truck Driver Training Coordinator Bill Rouan, CDL Testing & Housing Coordinator Chrissy Speziale and their Job Placement Coordinator Kim Webb. If anyone has dealt with any of the other staff, I’d like to hear your opinion.

Thanks in advance to anyone who responds, take care truckers.
