    Doubt they will send you home for snoring. They want to do a sleep apnea test because then they can lease or sell you a machine.. At least that is what Prime has done. Even if you already have a machine and been diagnosed with sleep apnea Prime still makes you get there machine.. Cause again they make money off it.

    There are 2 types of apnea. You can be as fit as a marathon runner and still have sleep apnea. I know several drivers who are so thin they have to keep moving in the shower because they can stand between the sprays, but they have the neurological form of sleep apnea, not obstructive apnea.

    The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea. In this condition, the airway collapses or becomes blocked during sleep. This causes shallow breathing or breathing pauses.

    When you try to breathe, any air that squeezes past the blockage can cause loud snoring. Obstructive sleep apnea is more common in people who are overweight, but it can affect anyone. For example, small children who have enlarged tonsil tissues in their throats may have obstructive sleep apnea.

    That fact that you snore so loud most likely means you have sleep apnea. Just because you're in shape means ABSOLUTELY nothing.

    Swift requires testing for sleep apnea based only on BMI determined by a height/weight chart . You will not get booted for snoring .

    However , pay attention to the above two posts . You should have a sleep study done for your own information and well being . A visit to an ear nose and throat specialist would determine if its a problem with your tonsils .

    Swift gives you an unsecured personal loan for school that is paid back through settlement deductions over 13 months after you have completed training . There is no contract requiring that you stay with them . If you leave before the loan is paid off you can continue the payments . If you default on the payments you owe the balance .

    The audio recording is completely shut off when the parking brake is set as is the interior (driver facing ) camera recording .

    that's a tough question to really depends on the trainer.have u thought about getting snore strips?Google snoring home remedies.maybe you'll find something..if you're attending their school and have to share a room with others those students may not be so tolerable of your snoring.they need their sleep as ex boyfriend snored really loud and it became a he put boards under the mattress to raise it a bit and hasn't snored since.I would say get this taken care of before going so there's no worries.

    I believe with Swift, the trainer will be driving a lot of the time while you're sleeping. There may be some overlap when you're both trying to sleep but not too much.

    Good info. Sorry, I thought people said it was "free" if you worked for them for a year. If they do payroll deductions during that 13 months, their school is obviously not free. At least it's fair though. Are you sure one can walk away at any time and not pay a penalty of any kind, just continue the payments? If so, it is actually a plus for people considering going to Swift's school.

    You pay $75.00 weekly and Swift gives you a $37.50 "bonus" for a net weekly payment of $37.50 for 13 months . They continue your $37.50 bonus through the 26th month which leaves a net tuition cost of zero .

    The details of the loan repayment are in the loan agreement signed the first day of school . There is NOTHING in the loan agreement requiring employment with Swift ; its simply a no credit check no interest unsecured personal loan .
