This is an update to some of the last logs I made back when I was looking for a school. I'm now in my forth week of training and have two more to go. Have been training for about a week now in the Houston traffic and I guess I'm doing OK. Haven't killed anyone yet. Still getting used to the down shifting without grinding gears. The more I drive the more I enjoy it. There certainly is a heck of allot more to it than one sees from simply watching a driver from a four wheeler. Although I find the challenge exciting. The Instructor wants to send me to my first road test this coming week. Passed all my written tests to include Haz-Mat, Tankers and Doubles/Triples. I'm in the process of filling out applications and hope to have a few pre-hire letters by graduation. I can't say enough about this school. It's a no ######## school. Although we have light hearted times once in a while when it comes to the training the instructors will not hesitate to chew your ### in order to teach the correct methods. This school is not for someone who wants to be a slacker or who expects to get by without putting 100% effort into it. We'll be taking our school test this coming week, which we have to pass in order to get our PTDI certificate.
I sure have learned allot and still have a long way to go, but i want to again thank all of your for your input. This helped me to make the right decision regarding which school I atended.
If anyone has any suggestions on local companies that are hiring around the Houston Area, I'd sure like to hear from you.
Thanks again and I'll be in touch.
