MTS Training Academy, Inc. was founded in 1996 by Michael and Paulette Brown. Already successful owners of a private for hire charter company, Michael and Paulette envisioned a training facility that could serve as a training resource for the commercial driving industry. Today MTS offers a comprehensive training program for the career minded professional driver.
Our Class A Operator Course is a four-week program totaling 160 hours between behind the wheel and classroom. This training includes DOT Safety Rules and Regulations as well as proficiency development in the skills required to obtain the Commercial Drivers License (CDL).
Students are required to attend 40 hours of classroom training covering such subjects as DOT logbooks, defensive driving, and job placement techniques.
Field Training includes both observation and behind the wheel time consisting of driving in training areas that include a combination of highway, city, and heavy traffic driving with an emphasis on defensive driving. Backing safety and emergency procedure are also practiced extensively.
After completion of the course, students are taken to the DMV for the (CDL) Driving and Skills tests. Upon successfully passing the tests, you will be able to enter the trucking industry as a qualified entry-level Diesel Tractor/Trailer Driver.
