    Do they run a hearing test? I am hearing impaired, cochlear implant in one ear and a hearing aid in the other.

    So it's pretty much all technique over your physical strength then? Using the coil to hold some of the tarps weight, lifting with it on your shoulder so that your whole body carries the weight...

    Cross post is all I can think of. It happens. I just don't ramble unless I am at a grocery store.

    Okay well I abandoned this thread, but during my time with a trainer I hadas family emergency went home and took care of the business when I tried to return they said no, now six months later I have been given the opportunity to rerun as an experienced driver. Don't knew what I'll do yet?

    I know of a few people that had that happen to them. One guy had to leave for medical reasons and he was told to come back after DR cleared him in 2 months. He was testing out to. Really sucked for him. I know one experience guy had funeral and he came week later back. I was a experience guy and I just got truck 2 weeks ago. I like it hell lot better then being with a trainer. My trainer sucked
