Ok, so the first day wasn't that great. I mean it is what it is. You do alot in the 15 day course. Its very fast paced.
The rooms they put you in are small, but clean. The second week you go to the hotel. The tv room is nice and they do have a pool table, laundry and a shuttle bus that can run you to Walmart.
OK, so here is how my day went.
After getting a shower and something to eat, which they do have good food.
7am you start all the paperwork, background check, physical, lifting tests, etc. Oh Yeah, my favorite, the drug test.
All that took till about noon then lunch then by 1 pm you go to the class room. The instructor is very nice and explained the schedule and how much studying you have to do in two days, because by Wed. you go and take your CDL test to get your permit. If you fail you can try again on Thursday, if you fail, you go home.
So we had class till 530 pm and we received the training manual test questions, etc. So with that said I better run, have to study, they recommend you study till 2 am get up at 6am and in class by 7am and do that for two nights, take the CDL "A" test and then you can sleep. So off I go.
Till next time, have a good day.

Well, it's been one week since Randy left for CDL training, and what a week it's been. It went by fast for him, it felt more like a month to me.

My first day of backing up a big rig in truck driving school and we were all nervous and excited. None of us knew what backing a big rig would be like
Company Sponsored CDL training can be a lot like boot camp. Prepare to have your self-worth, dignity, brains, abilities, and patience tested.
Getting started with CDL training meant a ton of bookwork in the beginning, working outside in temps below zero, and busting up some drivetrains.

Learning to back up a rig is clumsy at best. Nothing about it is easy. Having fun with it helps make learning easier, but prepare to embarrass yourself!
