According to PTDI's website, entry level students are
only required to drive a minumum of 44 hours. Yet,
the mandated classroom time is 104 hours, which are
spent on talking and watching videos. I've read
several complaints on this forum from recent grads,
about the deficiency of their training, which made them
(graduates) reluctant when test driving for a company.
Should PTDI reevaluate the standards or is this
information incorrect and/or outdated?
q Does each student receive at least 104 (60-minute) hours in classroom and lab time? (Lab includes time on the range under the supervision of an instructor. Observation time does not count as instructional time.)
q Does each student receive at least 44 (60-minute) hours of actual behind-the-wheel time? (This is time with hands actually on the wheel, with at least 12 hours on the range and 12 on the road and the other 20 hours on either.)
