CALGARY, Alta. -- Trimac Transportation will begin training its entry-level drivers using the comprehensive Earning Your Wheels program developed by the Canadian Trucking Human Resource Council (CTHRC).

Under the new “Train with Trimac” initiative, CTHRC accredited Mountain Transport Institute (MTI) of Castlegar, B.C. will deliver the training material, while Trimac will offer paid on-the-job coaching, financial support toward tuition and a job upon graduation.

Earning Your Wheels includes two months of classroom and in-truck training prior to four weeks of supervised work experience. On-the-job training will take place under the watchful eye of experienced Trimac personnel that MTI will train as coaches.

“The Train with Trimac program has been developed in response to the need to make a career as a Professional Driver more accessible,” said Andy Roberts, MTI’s president. “Many people who are interested in truck driving can’t afford the training. The Train with Trimac program removes that hurdle.”

Participants in the program will have access to financing that covers up to 73% of tuition costs. Those drivers who stay with Trimac for two years will also be eligible for a tuition refund worth up to $5,000.
