    well I finished my first day at TMC here in Iowa, lost 5 people today after the background checks came back. did the DOT physical and went out and did the pickin up the tarp deal and climb the ladder on the trailer and did a few of the class's on the computer along with some of the paper work.
    tommorow they gonna start spliting up the class a little, they gonna keep 12 people till 8pm after the rest of the class goes back to the motel. gonna go do some laps in the trucks. and do some other stuff as well. I'll keep yall up on what goes on if ya like.

    they do simple ones before you show up and do the federal one on day one, they cost about 200 bucks so with about 10 to 15 no shows per class/week that could add up over time just for dumb ##### that dont show up .

    they said that when they get the peoples applacations in that they just do a state and county check, and if that checks out good they bring them in and do the federal background while they here cause it costs them a bit todo the federal check. course they tell everyone on the first day while they are checking back over everything they submitted that the federal goes back all the way. and that now is the time to make sure you got everything on there. cause if they find something you didnt put on that it will be consider falsesaing your applacation. so really the guys screw themselfs by not putting everything down while they still have a chance.

    what a joke these dam checks are begining to be, some places are asking you to bring your own paperwork so they dont have to pay the fees.
