Bad Weather Tip -- CB radios still have Value!

Joe Graham tried to warn his fellow drivers going eastbound on I-90 near Erie, Pennsylvania about the start of a pile-up ahead of them. He screamed into his CB radio for the next 30 miles, trying to warn others about what he had seen, but only two other truckers responded as the whiteout grew denser.

Federal Whistle Blower Protection for Drivers

The Federal Whistle Blower Protection rules in the OSHA regulations protect drivers.  Here is another example of the rules in action:

Chris S.

U.S. Veteran Chris S. started with us in late November and now has a Class A CDL along with a 160 Hour Certificate. While he was training with us he had a job offer from TMC out of Des Moines, IA. He's very excited and will be starting with them next week.  

Lynn V.

Lynn V. from North Branch, MN is a Veteran who began training with us in late November. She knew that in order to be a successful truck driver she had to come in with a winning attitude and that she had to get the job done regardless of the weather. Now that she has her Class A CDL and her 160 Hour Training Certificate she has elected to drive for Werner. She'll be starting in early February.

Halvor Lines Recruiting Event

Halvor Lines Recruiting Event

A recruiter from Halvor Lines out of Superior, WI will be presenting at our South St. Paul location. Halvor Lines has hired quite a few of Interstate’s graduates and all of them that come back all have nothing put positive things to say about their experience.

Founded in 1968, Halvor Lines, Inc. found its niche by going above and beyond to help our customers meet their hauling needs, and has built on that legacy every day since. Our 900 trailers and over 360 power units have continually moved goods--and people--across the 49 states and Canada safely and on time.

Said Omar

Said Omar came to Interstate looking for a Class A CDL. He took our Professional Tractor Trailer Course and now has his Class A and his 160 Hour Certificate. He's torn between driving for Werner and Swift. And that is what makes not juist our school, but the truck driving industry one of a kind. Said will be able to pick and choose where he goes to work. 

Tyrone Henry

Tyrone Henry came to our school to get his Class A CDL. During the course of his training, he ran into some health issues and needed to put his training on hold. With our course flexability, Tyrone was able to take the time he needed to heal. He came back when he was ready and finished his training. He has his Class A CDL and his 160 Hour Certificate so he can go to drive for any of the nearly 40 companies that we work with.
