Pontiac, Mich. (Vocus) April 22, 2010
Michigan’s largest school for training Commercial Class A truck drivers, Nu-Way Truck Driver Training Centers, reported today that there is a significant increase in the demand for entry-level CDL-A drivers. As another sign that the economy is recovering, the increase in the demand for these drivers reflects a healthy increase in the shipping of goods, either as raw materials or finished products, throughout Michigan and the entire nation.
Michigan’s truck freight declined significantly due in part to the collapse of auto manufacturing. While Nu-Way was able to maintain its graduate placement rate of 97%, this was accomplished through fewer trucking companies. Nu-Way officials report that the very recent increase in manufacturing and shipping has resulted in an upsurge in the number of companies desiring to recruit and hire Nu-Way graduates. Both the Pontiac and the Livonia schools are arranging multiple opportunities for their graduates, and most choose to begin their new careers within 7 to 14 days of their completion of the 4-week training and licensing processes.
Nu-Way Truck Driver Training Centers’ St. Louis, Missouri location was also impacted by the challenging economic times facing the nation. However, due to the geographical location of St. Louis, the number of entry-level positions remained much higher. The availability of career opportunities in the trucking industry is continuing to see increases in the St. Louis region. Today, more than 15 trucking companies are offering to hire graduates of Nu-Way from the St. Louis area.
Nu-Way has always been diligent in ensuring that individuals accepted for admittance into the school have the background that will make them attractive new hires for the transportation industry. It is that qualification process that makes Nu-Way so successful in maintaining a 97% truck driver job placement rate for graduates.
