Tim and Amanda Nash“I had wanted to drive a truck since I was a kid,” Tim says, “and the program fulfilled my expectations and then some.”

“It’s a real change of pace, a different lifestyle and the salary and benefits are great,” says Amanda. “The program is really thorough and I felt very well prepared for my career.”
