    Does anyone know if the Watkins/Shepard training school in Missoula, MT is an accredited school.

    It wouldn't matter if you went to work for them.

    If they are not accredited and I went to work for them and then decided after a couple of years that I wanted to go to another company is the other company going to look at the school back ground that I had.

    After 1 yr I don't think its going to matter, certainly not after a couple. Companies at that point are going to look at experience. I never went to a school and with 3 yrs experience was hired on with Landstar. One of the premier O/O companies in the US. They never asked about driving school.
