    I'd love to discuss how covenant trains teams. I'm curious how that works, training 2 ppl with one trainer in one truck. How long does this take?

    I think I understand that normally a trainer training one trainee, the trainer would do the driving for the first few days (week or two?) to show the trainee what to do. Then, the trainer is "on duty" while watching the trainee drive and giving tips and hints. Then, after a couple weeks of that, they can move to a more "team type" driving situation until the trainer feels the trainee is ready, or until a certain specified number of hours have been driven.
    Is this right guys? I'm being specific to Covenant really.

    How does the sleeping situation work? Would the trainees split the time behind the wheel until trained? Would it be more like solo driving,even with 3 in the truck, or would it be more like a team driving operation?

    Feel free to pm me if you are willing to talk about it with me, thanks :)

    I’ve been wondering about this too, I’ve heard of one other company that runs two trainees with one trainer and I just can’t figure out how that’d work. It doesn’t seem ideal three people in a truck at one time, and I feel like the training would really be lacking, but who knows. Maybe it’s done in a way that actually somehow works.

    Sounds like the wrong type of threesome in my opinion.

    "How does the sleeping situation work?" Well, it all depends on how you look. ;-)

    Get your training solo, get with the hubby after all of that is completed. I heard Schneider is offering a $30,000 sign on bonus for teams. might want to look there.

    Thanks for the laughs guys^^ and the advice. I'll get the real answers eventually, lol.

    I'm not sure why, if teams, especially husband and wife teams, are so valuable, why they don't do more to train them together? There have got to be ways to not separate ppl for 2 months... Like, one company said they'd train us basically local, home every night, but still with separate trainers, and that seems acceptable. But this "Oh sure, you want to team and be together, so we'll make you spend the first 2 months apart" thing is just weird... Or a company that could say "We could get you trained in two weeks". So far, we're top of our class in school, and fast learners, so... How long does this training usually take? Am I totally off with the 2 months thing?

    i saw a youtube video of this couple that trained with covenant and i thought they said the trainer basically live full time on the passenger seat. i dont know how is it legal unless the trainer doesnt log in the qualcom and consider to be a passenger. the hardest part is how in the world the trainer would able to do this, must be getting a lot of extra money......
