Troops Into Transportation is an initiative created by The CDL School and our partner trucking companies. Our Mission is to provide job training and placement for service members and veterans with our partner carriers. We at Troops Into Transportation have a goal to be the primary conduit for service members to enter the transportation industry by 2015; as well as being the primary employment source for major trucking carriers seeking to hire military personnel. We provide comprehensive hands-on training and several highly successful certification program to help veterans and service members secure their Commercial Driver’s License to begin their career in the commercial trucking industry. There are many diverse offers for career advancement opportunities by leveraging military skills and knowledge.

Why are we different?

What separates Troops Into Transportation from traditional higher-education or vocational programs, is that we are a Job-First program. We have our potential students apply for acceptance and employability with our partner carrier. Acceptance into our program is determined once we can verify an applicant will be pre-hired. Once a student is pre-hired, they have the opportunity to start our certification program and are immediately scheduled for training with prompt and secure job placement upon graduation. This gives you the security and predictability you need and expect.

The instructors were very helpful in giving out various tips to not just pass the CDL exams but also in transitioning into a career as a truck driver. There was plenty of hands on and stick time and I like how they put a very high emphasis on the student to instructor ratio.
