    I've read a lot on these forums and from what I've read Swift probably does better than hundreds of CDL schools where you get a couple hours in a truck in 3 or 4 weeks of school.

    Swift "academy" was great IMHO. The purpose of the academy is to get you to pass the cdl (which they did a good job of). The learning to be a professional truck driver part is done with the mentor (ideally). In my class (in Phoenix) we had six students split sharing 2 trucks, so we each got a lot of time on the range and on the road.

    I have met several drivers ( uber drivers on their home time ) from Swift and heard only good stuff about company . The bad things only here on the forum :) ...somehow they got stamped as worst ...all the memes about them ...
    Dont mean to offend anyone .
    Whats funny for me about ACADEMY OR UNIVERSITY is (being immigrant from eastern Europe) - this is the top level of education in my country .
    Kindergarden
    Elem school
    Mid school
    High school
    After midterm of high school you can go to college ( normally who wants to become skill trade or dont have enough brains to go to academy or university )
    academy or university can be attained only after high school graduation and passing 3 exams to the chosen academy or university . After passing exams ( depends on the grades ) you either pay out of your pocket for your education or government pays ( if you are smart )
    ...of course another way to get to academy or university is bribe :)
