“A CDL License Is A Diploma for the Working Person…”
Fully Paid CDL Training for Military Men and Women
Available Through The Post 9/11 G.I. Bill
We can’t say enough good things about Trainco Truck Driving Schools, with whom we’ve worked for two years. If you live in Michigan or Ohio, this is the school for you. Every Trainco graduate is well-trained and highly qualified; Trucking Careers has placed more than 150 Trainco graduates with great companies and not one graduate has been sent home because they lacked critical skills.
Recently, Ken Howell, President and Founder of Trainco Truck Driving Schools, was a guest on Allen Smith’s live broadcast Blog Talk Radio, discussing “Choosing The Best CDL Truck Driving School.”
“Considering professional truck driving as a career begins with choosing the best CDL truck driver training school. The wrong career can ruin your career before it even begins. Highly reputable and recognized as one of the best CDL training facilities in the country …..”
Great News for Military Men and Women
Fully approved by the Veterans Administration to train Armed Forces members at Trainco’s Perryburg, Findlay, Norwalk, Taylor and Ann Arbor campuses, this means full training funds for those military men and women who have served three years or more. Your funding options may include:
- your entire cdl driver training at Trainco’s Perrysburg, Norwalk, Taylor and Ann Arbor campuses is paid for
- Post 9/11 GI Bill (also known as Chapter 33) veterans with 3 years of service or more may be fully funded
- Servicemen and servicewomen with less experience may see a good bit of the cost covered
- additional costs, such as short-term housing, gas/food allowance, may be partially or even fully covered
- if these programs don’t meet your needs, multiple funding options are available through Trainco
A huge benefit is that veterans interested in an otr truck driving career can attend an independent truck driving school with their cdl training course fully funded, unlike a trucking company paid cdl training program which carries with it contractual obligations and restrictions.
To learn what funding assistance may be available to you go to http://www.gibill.va.gov/apply-for-benefits/application and then give Trainco Truck Driving School a call at 419-837-5730. Trainco will fill you in on their numerous training options and campuses, get you settled into their outstanding housing facilities for those involved in “Train and Stay” programs and put you on the road to your new career in next to no time.
In February 2009, Trainco and Owens Community College announced a partnership. This afforded area residents the opportunity to receive five college technical credits while enrolled in Trainco Professional Truck Driving Schools and Career Centers. Students pursuing their commercial driver’s license (CDL) apply the educational training and experience toward an associate’s degree in Owen’s Technical Studies or a related field.
Dr. Michael Bankey, vice-president of Owens’ Workforce and Community Services, states, “Owens College is proud to partner with Trainco, Inc. and provide northwest Ohio residents with innovative new avenues to obtain a college education. The need for skilled and qualified truck drivers continues to grow. Job opportunities nationwide are readily available within the truck driving industry. We welcome this collaboration with Trainco, meeting the academic and workforce needs of the region.”
Similarly, Trainco now partners with:
- Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, Michigan to offer truck driver training programs on their campus
- Cuyahoga Commujity College (TRI-C) to provide CDL/truck driver training to their Corporate College West Campus
– New Campuses Coming Soon to Arizona –
Trainco Truck Driving Schools and Mohave Community College have just announced a partnership to bring CDL and truck driver training to Mohave Community College’s Bullhead City campus and Neal campus in Arizona.
MCC’s Bullhead City Campus is located at 3400 Highway 95 in Bullhead City, Arizona, and their Neal campus is located at 1971 Jagerson Avenue in Kingman, Arizona.
