has anybody gone to or heard about national trucking school?
I have recently became unemployed in Florida and state unemployment told me that the state will pay for my schooling to become a driver. Iwould like to know if anybody has heard about or gone to National truck driving school? I was told by recruiter from school its accredited. Any help on this school would be appreciated. thank you and god bless all of our soldiers abroad.

I know there was a national here in colorado was shut down either by company or state no one wants to give me a good answer. I know there was a better biz complaint atleast once my a student here alleging false advertising.
I would recomend Sage Tech Truck Driving school dub dub dub dot sageschools dot com they seem to be honest and i start at their school in henderson colorado monday april 9th 2007. The sage here is one on one when student is behind the wheel not 5-6 other sudents sharing the truck this is accomplished by when the behind the wheel time begins it will be 4 hours a day per student. That was one of the main selling points for me as i do not want to be in the truck with other student. Adams county Colorado is paying for the whole school for me.
there are a couple of sage schools in flordia too I checked. I would go to Sage before national anyday.
another school to avoid if you have seen is M T A they had a location here in colorado but was closed I filed a complaint on them with the dept of higher education for failing to uphold thier contract with me 10 years ago. I got a full refund of down payment when I talked to the recruiter at M T A said all I would need dow was 700.00 and no payments untill 45 days after graduation I asked well did you run credit check stated yep only 700. down then when I went to school to sign the contract I aske the question again said yep 700 down then go through almost two weeks at M T A then they pulled me in the office ant pay in full of leave I said why they reply credit did not check out I said well did I not ask you before I put 700 down was credit run you stated yep. they said too bad pay in full of quit so I asked arround and found out that dept of higher education regulates them and then the M T A offers to me give us 300. more abd we will get you a cdl b for intown only I said my contract stated I wanted a cdl a not b I told them to hiss my rear I want my money back the school did not have a choice but to give the money back. After that it left a bad taste in my mouth for truck driving schools but now have gotten over that but I never lost the bug to drive a truck. I was tested on a job evaluation program and at age 15 or 16 I knew that I wanted to be in truck driving and the program even said that is what I would be good at. I am now almost 30 and still want to drive truck.
sorry for such a long post but just letting you know my experinces
