Sun Prairie, WI (PRWEB) March 13, 2013
The country had 1,604,800 truck driving jobs in 2010 and the government projects a growth of 33,000 new jobs each year through 2020. Plus more jobs are available from the thousands of drivers who retire each year. Obviously the need for qualified drivers will not go away. The diesel Truck Driver Training School (http://www.truck-school.com) in Sun Prairie WI offers complete training packages for anyone who wants a solid future in professional driving.
To help defray the cost of tuition, the Diesel Truck Driver Training School is offering a two hundred dollar scholarship for any prospective student who takes advantage of their free class offering. This class covers an introduction to driving a heavy truck and those eligible for the scholarship can apply the money towards any one of the schools other classes.

Applications can also be given over the phone by calling (800) 332-7364 for classes that start up every two weeks. Classes are also held on weekends for those who cannot commit to a weekday classroom schedule.
To prepare students for their Class-A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) courses offered cover all aspects of driving a heavy truck, including inspections, hands on road driving, backing exercises and coupling/uncoupling a rig. Courses offered include the basic course that includes classroom training and road exercises to help students prepare for the CDL written test, CDL road test and DOT physical. The comprehensive program includes all the training included in the basic course but includes the cost of the CDL permit and DOT physical exam making them eligible to be covered under financial aid packages.
Financial assistance is available to all qualified applicants. This covers training, housing, physical, and CDL licensing fees. Many of the regular employers who hire the School's graduates offer full reimbursement of tuition if the graduate chooses to drive for them. Applicants to the school may also qualify for assistance through the state and federal grants as well as complete tuition assistance through the GOI Bill for qualified veterans.
For students who complete one of the programs career services are also available to help place students in careers that they are qualified for and are interested in. To compliment the classroom training, all students are also taught the soft skills needed to make an impression in job interviews. And with a contact database of thousands of potential employers the school’s Career Services Department works with students from the very first time they set foot in the classroom to help them realize their dream of finding employment behind the wheel of a big rig.
Classes begin every two weeks so interested students are encouraged to visit the schools web site, http://www.truck-school.com to receive a free brochure and more information about how to enroll as a student.
