Commercial truck driving is a vocation that pays extremely well and a person between 18 and 55 can qualify relatively quickly with the right training. Leading the way in this area in Mississauga, Ontario is A1 Transportation Academy. The school provides remarkably well-reviewed Class A license instruction on a flexible schedule and, importantly for many, with flexible payment plans including financing available. A1 Transportation Academy is frequently referred to as one of Canada’s absolute best truck driving schools with over 190+ Google Reviews. An equally well-respected Truck Dispatcher course is also now accepting students.
All that said, there are many good reasons to take the step forward and become a licensed commercial truck driver. Let’s look at some of the most compelling aspects of this career:
Truck Drivers Are in BIG Demand. A smart and cautious person, with responsibilities, will likely consider if there’s a demand for a position they are training for before they enroll in a school. The hard truth right now is that many areas of study are extremely uncertain for the time being, while others that were formerly very active have left many looking for other types of work. Commercial truck drivers do not have this problem. In fact, they are just as much in demand as ever. This alone should make A1 Transportation Academy something to consider for those who want or need a position where they can likely find work quickly, after completing training and obtaining their Class A license and certification.
Truck Driving Pays Well. For a job that doesn’t require a University degree or long years of apprenticeship and experience building, it doesn’t get much better than truck driving when it comes to pay. Starting off in the neighbourhood of $8,000 a month is a reasonable expectation. Compare this to just about anything else starting off and driving a truck wins when it comes to paying, hands down.
M.E.L.T. Truck Driving program is Short in length. Even when attending classes and training on a flexible schedule, A1 Transportation Academy is much, much shorter than trying to get a University degree or any other vocational option that actually can lead to a good paycheck. This makes driving a truck a very good decision for those who need a new start, fast, if they have a family or other responsibility that they cannot neglect. Also, it’s ideal for young men or women who are out of High School and wants to start a career as soon as possible.
Truck Drivers Can Often Work Very Flexible Schedules. For those who’d like to not be committed to a 40-hour, Monday-to-Friday “traditional” job for decades, truck driving can be an easy alternative. Since truck drivers are generally in such demand this opens the door to working quite flexible schedules as long as these are agreed to in advance. This allows many drivers to schedule time off with their loved ones and not only be able to count on very good paychecks but also on being able to have more active relationships than they would otherwise have if working in another field. This flexibility also involves being able to work much more often if making as much money as possible is more attractive to the driver. It’s largely up to them.
Of course, there are many other benefits to being a professional truck driver. But when considering the major ones, it should be quite easy to see what a life-changing for the better decision going to A1 Transportation Academy can be. The excellent training experienced instructors, and remarkable success rate makes it an ideal choice. A1 Transportation Academy is also registered with TTSAO and PCC Approved. While the opportunity is still available and demand continues to rise, the time to jump on board for many is as soon as possible. There’s nothing to lose.
Don’t believe the hype that trucking will be gone in any of our lifetimes. Freight companies’ demand is monstrous here in Canada and will continue to be so. The online shopping explosion will fuel the demand for drivers even further. Most companies have positions that stay unfilled and they can’t wait to get a graduate of A1 Transportation Academy who is properly trained, dually licensed and certified to come on board. Not only will they have a new driver but they will have one who has been trained properly at a top school, and understands the ins and outs of driving, how to be safe, and much more.
Truck Driving may not be for everyone but for those who like to drive and travel, who appreciate being independent, and making money on their own, and who like not having a schedule carved in stone, it doesn’t get much better.
