Once you complete your on the job training with your driver mentor you will be brought to Cedar Rapids, IA to attend Finishing School.
The Finishing School of our driver training program is a 3-day in-house teaching session. The school is designed to ensure your success by focusing on the utilization of the Qualcomm, Trip Planning and Hours of Service. We also have a hands-on backing clinic which will help your comfort level with the straight line, 45 degree and blind side back. The instructor will ride along with you on your first assigned load that will be a local load. They will be conducting the final road test at the same time which allows the instructor the opportunity to verify you have a rounded understanding of completing each load in a successful manner. Learning a new position takes times, and truck driving schools don't teach new drivers everything they need to know to be successful which is why West Side Transport started the Finishing School as a part of our driving trainer program.
From our orientation to the driver trainers to the finishing school we have everything it takes for every recent graduate to start off their new career successfully.
