Meet our Professional Heavy Equipment Training Instructors

Our instructors are the best in the business. All of them are patient and supportive in teaching the hands-on skills our students will need to successfully pass the CDL test and to use in their chosen profession. Most of our instructors have been qualified by the State of Florida to administer the state’s CDL Test to our students and to others, as 3rd Party Testers for truck drivers sent to us by companies and other sources.

Not only are our instructors accomplished in CDL training and/or heavy equipment training, but they also have great depth of knowledge of the trucking industry from first-hand experience as truck drivers.

Our instructors have more than a century of experience as truck drivers and CDL training instructors.

Our instructors each have many years of experience training and coaching students who are learning truck driving and heavy equipment operation. Their collective experience from working and teaching in these fields totals over 100 years.

This extensive background and experience, both in the field and in the classroom, serves our students very well when learning truck driving techniques at the wheel of a semi tractor-trailer, or in the catbird seat of an earth mover. With their expertise, our instructors also offer invaluable knowledge and advice in the classroom, where students learn about the life of a truck driver and discuss important industry topics and non-driving skills.
