- which cdl training school you go to
- which company sponsored cdl training program you choose
- which company you go to work for right out of the gate
- which leasing or owner operator program you choose
The bad news is that you really have to do a lot of research and it takes a lot of time. And if you're like everyone else time is often a precious and scarce commodity. Even though you may be starting a new career it's sometimes just too tempting to take shortcuts and not do enough due diligence.
The good news is that there is an alternative! And that's us....we've done all the due diligence for you. But we'll get to that in just a moment.
For students especially, the road to a successful professional truck driving career can be very treacherous and downright deceiving. Many trucking companies that offer company sponsored cdl training have little or no interest in whether or not new drivers make the grade and stay with them for any length of time. In fact, it's just the reverse. Their business model and method of operations for students is structured to push them towards failing. Ridiculous, isn't it? But that's how it is.
Many trucking companies prey on students and use their ignorance of the industry to their advantage, because the company makes a serious profit in turning over drivers - bring them in and move them on out. The end result is that too many cdl class a licensed drivers suddenly find themselves on the road to nowhere .....
So, how do students know whether to go through a company paid cdl training program or attend an independent cdl driver training school? How do recent cdl graduates know which company to go to work for? How do experienced otr drivers know what better jobs are out there? How do you know how to plan your career as a successful professional tractor trailer driver?
I'm so glad you asked. And because we've got the answers you know you've come to the right place. We are specialists in a very importnt area of the trucking industry - we are career advisors, career planners and job placement experts for otr professional drivers.

We are Trucking Careers of America ... we are all about helping drivers plan their career for short-term objectives and long-term goals. Career planning can begin with the first decision you make after graduating, it can begin with choosing the first company you will go to work with. It can begin at any point in which you feel your career has hit a snag and you need to step back and re-evaulate. It can begin at any time....in other words, it's never too late.
Planning your career and following your career plan continues well into the future taking you along a career path that will lead to better opportunities ... a better lifestyle and a more rewarding career. And if there is a planned or unexpected interim move you need to make halfway between here and there, we can help you with that as well and keep you on the right career track.
You've heard the expression, "you can't get there from here" ... in the trucking industry that often is true. We see it all the time. Drivers who made a wrong decision or were treated badly by a trucking company find themselves trying to figure out what to do next....sometimes they are having a serious problem just trying to save a fledgling career. Fortunately, we are able to help the majority of these drivers.
