Some carriers, in fact, are members of the Military Apprenticeship Program. With this program, you may be eligible to earn a monthly educational benefit check along with your weekly salary from your new job.

COMPANY-SPONSORED CDL TRAINING
Some trucking companies will pay for CDL training through sponsorship. This could be an option for you, if you are able to commit to a truck driving position for a period of time. In exchange for driving for the trucking company, they will cover most of the costs of your truck driver training tuition. Apply now and we will be happy to talk with you about this option. Depending on the sponsorship you qualify for, some students are hired directly at the campus they attend.
You may also choose to use financing options such as credit or bank cards, loans, life insurance, or refinancing. But whichever way you choose, our staff will be there to help find the most affordable option for you.
